Every September marks one of the the most wonderful annual "Noble Deeds" that The Noblemen host in our "Special Needs Air Show"! Every year the great folks at Naval Air Station Oceana allow The Noblemen to host a group of special needs children and their families to enjoy the Oceana Air Show. This year we had over 300 people attend and it was an amazing day. Airshow pilots visited our tent throughout the day and interacted with the kids, even allowing them to try on their flight gear. All the children received super cool airshow goodie bags that were a big hit and were treated to a special lunch. This was one magical day for everybody that attended!                                

"Tower, this is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby!"                                            
 
   
 

Every year The Noblemen support a great organization called "Sports SuperKids" which is run by a local hero named Bob Lane. Bob has been taking sick children and special needs children to Washington Redskins games for the past 20 years. Bob has unprecedented access to the team and the stadium and is able to take the children into the locker room after each home game to meet the players and receive autographs. The Noblemen help to pay the travel and accommodation expenses for the families and also pitch in to purchase footballs on which the kids can get player's autographs. The Noblemen are truly grateful to Bob for all of the joy he has provided to great local kids and we are honored to support this Noble cause!





 


   



The Noblemen are excited to send a good friend of ours to a Redskins game along with Bob Lane and the Sports SuperKids program. Chaz Floyd has become a good friend of The Noblemen over the past several years and now attends our "Special Needs Air Show" every year. Chaz also happens to be a die hard Redskins fan. We got word at the airshow this year that Chaz and his family will attend the Redskins / Eagles game on November 18th. This is a dream come true for Chaz and he can't wait to get to the game.
Congratulations Chaz! Hail to the Redskins!


 
   
 
The Noblemen and NobleWomen are delighted to welcome Kellie Maier to our membership ranks. Kellie runs a local organization here in Hampton Roads called "KellsKids" whose mission is to work with special needs children in the water. One of the primary activities of KelsKids is to take special needs children on stand up paddle boards. KellsKids held an SUP race in September and had a great turn out of Noblemen and NobleWomen who participated as both volunteers and racers. The Noblemen organization is excited to continue to work with and support KellsKids!
