If you haven’t noticed yet, you should know I am a BIG fan of a good FSS event. I love the feeling of being with our community having fun and enjoying what the FSS squadron has put together for us. During a meeting with Matt Balas, the Deputy Director of FSS, he was able to give me a sneak peek into what the rest of the year looks like for the base and I’m here to share!


October 3rd at 6:30pm is the Ultimate Game Show hosted by Air Force Entertainment at the JDC. Now, by the time this newspaper comes out, this event will have happened, but you can bet that I will be there and give a full recap!


October 5th, BOWLING IS BACK! The Bowling Alley will be reopening with its standard Thursday-Saturday hours and will be hosting leagues. In honor of the reopening, they will be offering Free Bowling to the first 100 Single Airman and first 100 Deployed Affected Family Members on Saturday October 7th from 5-9pm.


October 14th at 11:15am take the family over to our Library to learn about solar eclipses and use a variety of methods to look at one while it’s happening! Then at 12 take part in their Pumpkin Party with stories, activities and crafts.


October 27th from 5:30-8:00pm Spooky-Con is here for a fun filled Halloween at the turf. Enjoy a festive and fun night with activities, fames and more! Bounce between the turf activities and the Haunted Stacks at the Library for a family night of fun.
Guys, this is just October! We have the bistro gearing up for their reopening, the base holiday party to look forward to on December 1st, and the Frostival and Tree Lighting event December 2nd as well! I’m looking forward to seeing all the FSS works hard to put on for us and I hope you will too!
