Hello Coast Survey,

As 2016 comes to a close, I encourage you to consider supporting the Combined Federal Campaign. The deadline for one-time contributions has been extended to December 31. Thank you to those who have contributed via payroll deduction and in other ways such as the basket raffle, potlucks, penny challenge, and cornhole tournament. I'd also like to thank Coast Survey's CFC team lead, Matt Kroll, and our keyworkers, Mary Louise Kurchock (CSDL), Megan Greenaway (HSD), Rolland Gant and Brian Hensel (MCD), Laura Jeffery (NSD), and Kristen Crossett (staff). Again, please consider donating to a worthy charity, a little can go a long way. You can pledge your donation here, using the Coast Survey ID #: 4023903. If you have any questions, please contact your keyworker.

I wish all of you and your families a wonderful holiday and New Year! I am personally grateful for your hard work and tremendous effort during 2016 and I look forward to working together in 2017.

Rear Admiral Shepard M. Smith
