Elizabeth Knouse- September Director's Letter

September is the month we start to say goodbye to warm, sweet summer and say hello to the crisp, autumn weather. Fall is always a special time for our military community. We at MWR are striving to meet your needs and provide you with the best experiences South-Central Pennsylvania has to offer! There are numerous festivities custom designed by us at Family and MWR that will redefine your definition of fun!

In the beginning of September, we will be hosting a Doggie Dip and Yappy Hour at the “Splash Zone” Swimming Pool. Bring your furry friends to enjoy a night of fun, splash contests and an open swim for canines! Afterwards head on over to the Tiki Bar for Fuzzy Dog and Dog Lappers Drink Specials, the regular Tiki Bar menu, corn dogs and free ice cream for your pooch.

Midway through the month don’t forget that the annual Carlisle Barracks Fall Yard Sale is scheduled for September 19 and everyone is welcome! You can rent a space to sell your items or check out the projected hundred plus sales throughout Post. It is that time of the year again! October 8-11 is our annual Oktoberfest at the Army Heritage and Educational Center. Come out and enjoy carnival rides, live music, great food, the beer and wine garden and much more at Central Pennsylvania’s take on this wonderful German celebration.

Perhaps you may decide to traverse one of our area’s countless mountain trails, painted in hues of yellow and orange by our famous autumn foliage. Our Outdoor Recreation and Leisure Travel staff are always here to help you; whether you are looking for a challenging hike or a relaxing nature walk, or even a trip outside of the Central Pennsylvania region. School is also well underway for the youth of our community and with it comes the many afterschool programs and activities that our Child and Youth Services has to offer. From backpacking to pottery, our programming offers a variety of recreation that is sure to meet the needs of your children.

Whether you are a service member, retiree or DoD civilian, we are here for you and your family. Excellence is our standard and we find it a great privilege  to provide you and your family with only the best. Come join MWR in celebrating another unforgettable fall season. We look forward to serving you!
