USAA Military Spouse Appreciation Week at Fort Campbell May 6th-10th, 2013

Morale, Welfare and RecreationFort Campbell, KY – Military Spouses are an invaluable asset to the Army. They support their Soldiers though mission, deployment, reintegration and reset and keep the home fires burning. Throughout history, military Spouses have been the backbone that provides support for the Soldiers and holds the Family together.

The Army recognizes the support and sacrifices made with Military Spouse Appreciation Day on May 10th.  Instead of just one day of appreciation, Fort Campbell’s Family Resource Center (FRC) will host three days worth of activities and events to honor our Spouses.

This year’s theme is “ReTreat”, a reminder that our military Spouses need to take time to take care of themselves.  Activities will kick off with a free, full day conference will be held on May 6th from 8:30am to 3:00pm. Presenters include Dana Chango, Laura Mercier, Amanda Miller and Marla Cilley (aka The Fly Lady).  Reservations are required and childcare will be offered on a limited basis.  To make reservations please call the FRC at 270.956.2935.

On May 7th, you will be treated to a Luau BBQ Cooking Show from 5:30pm to 9:00pm. Sample a variety of Hawaiian treats prepared on site while you enjoy some special entertainment provided by authentic Polynesian dancers.  This event is free and reservations are required. Limited childcare is available, so contact the FRC early.

Spa Night will be held on May 10th from 6:00pm to 9:30pm. You can treat yourself to a variety of spa services at no cost to you and childcare is available with a reservation. Spa services are on a first come, first served basis and there will be multiple services to choose from.
