Get Involved

February is a very busy time for our club and I encourage you to get involved with some of the planned events. Many fun activities including book club, hiking, lunch bunch and bunco! Please don’t let the cold weather keep you from enjoying fellowship with your friends!

It’s almost time for our annual fundraiser, “Galaxy Gala, A Night Under The Stars”! You won’t want to miss this event. Please invite your friends and neighbors to this spectacular night at the Space and Rocket Center. We will be having heavy hors d’oeuvres, games, auctions and entertainment by Twickenham Jazz and Swing Band. Make it a special date night by booking a room at the Marriott hotel next door. We have a special rate of $113 which includes a beautiful room with full breakfast and late morning check out. See our website at RSAMCC.org for a link to make your reservations and for additional ticket information.

The Board has had a busy year with many changes and another one of those is our bi-annual review of our Constitution and By-laws. A copy of the Constitution/By-laws has been emailed to each member for review.  It was recommended that we combine these two documents into one making it easier to reference and lessen the repetition. Members will have an opportunity to ask questions prior to voting during the business portion of the February luncheon.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Looking ahead

Happy New Year Ladies,

I hope everyone had a blessed holiday and spent time celebrating with
loved ones. For me, it seemed to pass way too quickly. I tried to slow
down a little each day and focus on the meaning of Christmas and sweet
memories of past times together with dear friends and family members.
They all hold a special place in my heart and I trust you all have similar
experiences. It really is a magical time of the year!

As I look ahead, 2018 promises to be an exciting year. Our club will be
hosting our annual fundraiser “Galaxy Gala” A Night under the Stars!
Tickets are available for purchase you do not want to miss this great
evening. The January special discount is a table of 8 for $550. Please
invite your friends and neighbors. Funds that we raise are returned to
the community through Community Grants who support our Redstone
Military Community and Merit Awards for military and DoD civilian family
members to pursue continuing education.

Wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Kristina

Spirit of the Holidays

Holiday Greetings ladies,

It has been my privilege to lead and represent our Military and Civilians’ Club for the past six months. I am very proud and thankful for everyone who has given their time and talents to make all of the changes so successful.

I am blessed by the ladies who have taken leadership positions to fulfill the missions of our group. We are busy with preparations for our major annual fundraiser, Galaxy Gala: A Night Under The Stars! on Friday, February 23, 2018. 

This year’s fundraiser will be held at the Space and Rocket Center. Ticket cost is $75/person. We are offering our members an opportunity to purchase (2) discounted tickets $60/person by the December luncheon, December 12th. The Twickenham Jazz and Swing Big Band will entertain us and there will opportunities to bid on many great Live and Silent Auction items. Please invite your friends and neighbors.

On behalf of myself and the Board, we wish for all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a healthy and prosperous 2018.

May the Spirit of the Holidays be with you throughout the year!

All my best,

Kristina

Happy Thanksgiving

We will hear this phrase a lot this month. I ponder on my many many blessings that I have. First and foremost; God, my family, the Army and our country!  We have so much to be thankful for living in the beautiful Tennessee Valley.

I would like to highlight and thank the ladies of our Board who have chosen to give their time and talent to be a part of this Club. As you all might have seen we have been busy with a lot of changes. Changes that will move us forward into the future. We have a new name, a new website, new ideas and a new look! These changes don’t happen over night and they didn’t happen with just one person. They happened because we came together as a team and decided that these things matter and are relevant in moving our club to the next level.

Board members have put aside their own agenda’s and have put the club first. They have done more than what is expected and exceeded all expectations on our missions.

I thank each and everyone of you from the bottom of my heart!

Thank you for volunteering on this year’s Board and making a true difference on our Club’s behalf!

All my best,

Kristina

Happy Fall Y’all!

If you have seen me around, you probably can tell that Summer is my favorite time of the year. I absolutely love to wear resort clothing and bright colors. My happy place is by the ocean or the pool swimming laps. Wherever the sun is shining.

When the Fall approaches, I am reminded there is another time for beauty. We are blessed in the Tennessee Valley to be able to enjoy all four seasons. However short some of them might be.

Fall signals a change and we as an organization are going through some changes of our own. It is time to change our name to The Redstone Arsenal Military and Civilians Club. We feel that by doing so it will allow us to be more inclusive and invite more folks to feel that they have a sense of belonging within the club. We will be voting on the new name at the October Luncheon. Please make every effort to attend and be part of this very important part of that process more information regarding this issue will be addressed in this newsletter.

I am looking forward to our “A Spooktacular Event”! Luncheon in October. Hear stories from Jacque Reeves about Huntsville’s haunted past specifically in the Historical District and Maple Hill Cemetery. Don’t delay, please respond today and bring a friend!

See you soon,

Kristina
