Director's Letter - May 2016

In the month of May we celebrate our mothers and remember our fallen.

Make sure to take extra special care of the women that take care you this holiday. This Mother’s Day you can treat mom to a hearty Breakfast Buffet at the Fort Indiantown Gap Community Club (RSVP 861-2450) featuring all of your favorite comfort foods and freshly baked and melt-in-your-mouth pastries or take her for an elegant brunch at the Letort View Community Center (RSVP 245-4329) with a wonderful array of locally prepared food sure to delight any Mom.

This month we set aside a special day to honor Military Spouses. Military Spouse Appreciation Day is celebrated the Friday before Mother’s Day. It is a day to honor both the men and women and the important role our Military Families play in keeping our Armed Forces strong and our country safe.

As we thaw from a very cold winter that just did not want to end, we welcome longer days and warmer weather. Make sure to take advantage of the many services that Family and MWR has to offer. Visit your local Leisure Travel Services office at Carlisle or Fort Indiantown Gap to learn about Washington DC and New York City On Your Own or pick-up discounted tickets for Disney Parks, Hershey Park or the Baltimore Aquarium. Experience the beauty of Pennsylvania with Outdoor Recreation via professionally guided trips for hiking, kayaking and biking as well as clinics and outdoor rentals. Take advantage of our new MWR Community Garden located on Liggett Avenue. Garden plots are still available and ready for your green thumb! All excess vegetables will be donated to our local foodbank. Pay it forward!

May also signals the upcoming PCS season at Carlisle Barracks so don’t forget about the Post wide Yard Sale on May 21st. It is open to the public and there will be a consolidation of sales on Indian Field and throughout the post. The Carlisle Barracks “Splash Zone” swimming pool will be opening on Memorial Day weekend so make sure to check out www.carlislemwr.com for all the upcoming details.

Finally, while Memorial Day carries thoughts of outdoor fun and recreation, we also take this time to honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice to secure our many freedoms. I hope you will all take some time to remember those who serve our country. We are very humbled and proud to be able to serve our military Families & Soldiers each and every day!

Whatever you choose to do this May, MWR is here to serve you!
