Selfridge Community Council's first and foremost mission is to facilitate and maintain the great relationship Selfridge Air National Guard Base has with our local community. In order to accomplish this task, we strive to help our local community, the Base, along with it's brave men and women working day in and day out to protect our freedom. How do we do this?
The Wertz Warriors, one man's dream transformed into reality. Vic Wertz, a former Detroit Tiger and Michigan Hall of Fame member, had a dream "to completely underwrite the Special Olympics Michigan Inc. (SOMI) State Winter Games." Selfridge Community Council is happy to support this great organization year in and year out.
Education is important in everything that happens at Selfridge. The Council supports the Selfridge Air Museum, the Starbase STEM learning center, as well as provides for scholarships for students of military members stationed at Selfridge who are going to attend college.
The Council strives to make sure the needs of all of Selfridge's military tenants are met. This includes requests for essential and nonessential equipment, funding recreational activities for base personnel, and assisting the needs of injured base personnel.
