Letter from the Director - Nov 2016

Falling leaves in central Pennsylvania can only mean one thing – the holidays are coming quickly! The leaves this season are a spectacular array of colors. I am certain winter will be just as beautiful! As we approach the holiday season, our attention turns increasingly toward connecting with our family and friends. As always, Family and MWR provides exciting ways to celebrate the holidays and the winter season in Central Pennsylvania.
Knowing you will probably enjoy a harvest of the summer’s bounty, why not stay fit with one of our holiday themed events like the 5k Drumstick Dash/Kids Run? Participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable holiday food item that will go to a needy family in our military community to Indian Field on November 12th.

Could you do without one more giant holiday meal to prepare? Why not let Letort View Community Center treat you and your family to a Traditional Pennsylvania Thanksgiving Feast and leave all the worry (and dishes) to us? Please call 717-245-3960 or 717-245-4049 to reserve your family’s table today! Don’t forget about our elegant catering services over the holidays. We can provide on-site or delivery for those holiday trays, cookies, and even full dinners for both those large office and small festivities.

While we are talking about the holidays, mark your calendars for the Annual Old Fashioned Christmas Tree Lighting on Post. December 7th marks the day Santa comes to Carlisle as we sing Christmas Carols, enjoy hot chocolate, and ride in our horse drawn carriages throughout Post. It is a magical evening every family should plan to attend!

Lastly, our Christkindlemarkt on December 3rd provides local, quality artists an opportunity to sell their wares with holiday flare. This much anticipated event has become an annual tradition for those looking to buy something special only a local artisan can create. Come by the Army Heritage and Education Center from 9am-2pm and get a taste of holiday spirit!

Thank you for your patronage to MWR and all our programs. I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving filled with family and friends.
