And that's a wrap.

The Wednesday before my parents got here was the last event of the 2014-2015 Fort Gordon Spouses' and Civilians' Club club year.  And unlucky lucky for me it was an event I decided to take charge of.

With a lot of hard work and a great group of ladies helping me execute, it was a fairly successful event.  I think.  I spent the majority of the event inside Quarters One with the baby because it was 239851938 billion degrees (like 90) outside and I had just spent two hours sweating my butt off.  Then I helped serve the food and before I knew it... the event was over and we were sweating again loading way too much stuff back up.


Regardless, I am very appreciative that our adviser let us use her house, Quarters One (also known as the Commanding General's quarters) and that it went off without (mostly) a hitch.

The general gist?  We brought in tables, chairs and tents.  Went out and got tons of donations from club members and CSRA businesses.  Put together awesome goody bags.  Served a light lunch.  Played an ice breaker game.  And gave away lots of great prizes.  It was free to all of our members and guests - as an official send off to the club year.


And I'm not sad about it being the end of this club year.  I've mentioned the club on here before.  It has kept me the busiest this entire year while also keeping me in a constant state of frustration.  I took on two board member slots, membership chair and webmaster.  So that is the busy part.  The frustrated part?  It was a year spent fixing the constitution.  Working with conflict among other board members.  And battling roadblocks at every turn.  It wasn't always enjoyable.  So I am very glad it is over.

To the ladies I served on the board with... thank you.  I know it wasn't easy this year but I am a better person for knowing all of you.  I wish those departing nothing but luck and I wish those staying a successful 2015-2016 club year.

Installation dinner - the week before.

I'm not 100% done with the club yet.  I was talked into taking over the expo chair.  The FGSCC sponsors the CSRA-Fort Gordon Community Expo in August.  This will be our second year hosting it and thankfully last years chair ROCKED.  She took great notes and everything is completely laid out for me.  The expo is one day before Rob graduates.. so cutting it a bit close.  However, I think with the help of an expo committee and the incoming board.. we will rock it.  Hopefully. ;)


Regardless.. that quiet lull has fallen on my calendar with no immediate meetings in the future.  I'm okay with that... I really, really am.

always,

  1. Enjoy your break!! I am loving my break from volunteering with Kyle's current job. The last 2 years as Company FRG leader as well as BN Senior Advisor really took it's toll on me. Enjoy this time, you have earned it!

  2. I definitely love when I've been really busy with something and then it ends, and then I have what you described perfectly as a quiet lull where I have nothing to attend and nothing to be working on. It's beautiful. Now if only I could get this stupid Harry Potter quiet book done so it can stop looming over me, and I'll be able to enjoy that lull of summer...
