Fort Knox’s annual Retiree Appreciation Day event will be held Friday at various locations on Fort Knox.

Due to the COVID-19 case rate in our region, this year’s event will take place at several locations across the installation to help facilitate social distancing, according to a Fort Knox news release.

The Sadowski Center at the intersection of Wilson Road and Eisenhower Avenue will serve as the primary location. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will host about 30 different post agencies and local organizations.

Additionally, Fort Knox Retiree Council members will be available to talk with attendees, and Staff Judge Advocate representatives will offer assistance with living wills and powers of attorney. Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

COVID-19 vaccines will be administered at the building 1747, located on Famous 4th Division Road. If available, flu vaccines will also be administered there for attendees ages 18-65. There also will be a question-and-answer session with Ireland Army Health Clinic leadership at that location from 9 to 9:30 a.m. Walk-in appointments will be available at White Hall, located in Building 1384, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and again from 1 to 3:30 p.m. for those needing new ID cards.

A cake-cutting ceremony will be held to honor retirees at 12:15 p.m. at the Fort Knox Commissary, and to close the day’s events, there will be refreshments from 3 to 3:30 p.m. at the Main Exchange.

Masks are required, regardless of vaccination status, inside all buildings on post. Attendees are encouraged to practice social distancing while at all Retiree Appreciation Day events.
