Letter from the Director - March 2018

March in Central PA brings much anticipated changes. We change our clocks (March 11th), the temperature starts to change (March 20th marks the first day of spring) and we start to look for outdoor activities. Many will join in various fitness classes and start running outdoors again in an effort to self-improve. MWR is here to help you and your family stay active and make healthy choices in your life. Please share your MWR experiences with us on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CarlisleFMWR)! We love hearing from you and you never know who you might inspire.

There is always something happening in the Andrew H. McConnell Youth Center. Saturday is open recreation dodgeball. Stop and see everything we have to offer for your children. The Moore Child Development Center will host the annual Easter Egg Hunt on March 24th. Your children will not want to miss this event. For the grown folks, I recommend that you attend our 3rd Annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the Pershing Tavern on March 14th & 15th. This area is ripe with travel opportunities which means our Leisure travel Service office is busy this season. Whether it’s one of our many NYC trips, Disney On Ice or Cherry Blossoms in DC, let us take care of the travel and stress so that you can spend that much need time with your family!

If you are new to Carlisle Barracks don’t forget that ACS will host the Newcomers Brief on March 9th. You can call 717-245-4375 for more information. Spring also means it’s time to start planning your PCS and we want to help. ACS is holding a very helpful Spouse Transition Workshop, March 20-21. They can help you with everything from translating your volunteer experience for your resume to fine tuning your LinkedIn account. Lastly, make sure to get your RSVPs in for our coveted Easter Brunch ASAP. Easter falls on April 1st so don’t wait too long and miss out. You can make reservations by calling the Letort View at 717-245-4329.

At MWR we are always striving to provide activities, programs, classes and events that support the whole family. We want to be your “First Choice” when it comes to child care, fitness, entertainment and fun! We welcome your suggestions and opportunities to offer our MWR family even more activities.
