  3. 3. V OLUME 3, ISSUE 2 P AGE 3 From the President... WOW! What a great first luncheon! We had over 80 members attend and 7 new members join. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did. The Community Outreach Program was a huge success, as well, and didn’t it feel good to give back?!? Christin James, our Community Outreach Chair collected a huge supply of flip-flops and a host of other items for House of Ruth. I would like to thank Ramona from House of Ruth for taking the time to come speak to us about what they are all about. We gave away some awesome prizes for Bunco, including 4 wine FRCSC President Crissy Baker glasses with 2 bottles of wine, “dinner & a movie combo” ( $50 value), and much more. Our door prizes for the raffle were some good ones as well. Thanks to all of our vendors for donating to our raffle every luncheon. I would also like to thank our members for taking the time to vote on our Constitution and By-laws. We hope you will all join us again on October 21 @ 6pm for the FRCSC’s first annual murder mystery dinner. The members of the FRCSC board will be performing a play and you will have the opportunity to guess “whodunnit?!” Prizes will be given and we encourage all of you to bring your spouses!

  10. 10. P AGE 10 LOCAL AREA STATUES Did you know….? Fort Rucker was originally established as an infantry training facility, then called Camp Rucker. Army Aviation officially moved from Fort Sill to Fort Rucker in February, 1955.The 15 foot polar bear you see across from the museum, known as Ted E. Bear, was erected in honor of the 31st Infantry Regiment’s polar bear mascot adopted after their tour in Siberia from 1918- 1920. The polar bear is owned by WOCC and is painted thematically intermittently. However, units that come to The Fort Rucker Polar Bear Fort Rucker for training occasionally “hijack” the bear and paint over him with their unit logo. And…. There are more than 50 four foot tall peanut statues in and around the Dothan area. The peanuts are made of fiberglass but still weigh almost 400 pounds each. The GOLDEN PEANUT, however, is over eight feet tall and can be found at the Visitor Information Center on Ross Clark Circle. Dothan considers itself the peanut capital of America and hosts it’s annual Peanut Festival every November. Have you seen any of these peanuts? The Elvis peanut, the “Ortho Nut” violin peanut, the sheriff peanut, the dalmation and fire hydrant peanut, fire fighter peanut, the American flag peanut, the peanut in the tub, the paper boy peanut and many more. Finding all the peanuts could make for a fun scavenger hunt! 25 Urell Street Fort Rucker, AL 36362 502-744-2503
  11. 11. V OLUME 3, ISSUE 2 P AGE 11 Name: Rebecca (Becky) Briggs Where do you call home? South East Michigan had been my home for 22 Have you met? years before moving here to Fort Rucker! Any brothers/sisters? My oldest sister is Carrie, who is married to Jerry (a ma- rine who is currently in Iraq). They have a son named Jase. Next, I have a brother named Joe. I also have a sister named Sarah, who's husband Craig is in the Air Force. They are expecting their first child in March of 2011! I am the youngest of the 4 children. Married? Husband’s name and unit: I am married to Lt. Jeremy Briggs who is in the Michigan National Guard B Co 1/112th S&S AVN Unit. Children? Names and ages: We have no children yet, but are sure they are in God's plan Rebecca Briggs for our future together! How many times have you been to Fort Rucker? Fort Rucker is my new home as of May! I'd never been here prior to this assignment. What do you love most about Fort Rucker and/or lower Alabama? The thing I love most about Fort Rucker is the conven- ience of everything. From the gym, to the chapel, to the pool-they are all within just minutes of my home! The things I love most about lower Alabama are the sun's hot rays, and the sweet southern hospitality of course! If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? If I could go anywhere in the world, I think I would go to Italy. My father's side of the family is from there, and I would love to see first-hand the area in which they called home. Plus, of course, the architecture and art history of Italy are fascinating to me! What are your hobbies? Some of my hobbies include swimming, art, playing Modern Warfare 2, Zumba, playing the drums, photography and listening to music. What activities (outside FRCSC) are you involved in? At the time I am not involved in too many activities besides regularly participating in classes at the gym and selling AVON. Back home I was very involved in competing in pageants, with such organizations as the Miss USA and Miss America Organizations. I was also very involved in 4-H and church activities before making our move to Fort Rucker. What is your most favorite food? My most favorite food is a good ole' medium rare prime rib! What is the best movie you’ve recently seen (why)? A movie that is not new, but that I have recently viewed again and still love is Black Snake Moan. It satisfies the musician in me, gives a peek into the military life of a young man, has many Bibli- cal references, and just has a great story line all together. What is your favorite type of music, favorite band/musician? I love almost all music! Depending on my mood, I'll listen to anything from Casting Crowns when I'm praising God, to Sugarland when I'm feeling country, to Slipknot when I miss my double bass pedal back home on my drums! I have to get my fix somehow! Do you have any special talents? I've written and illustrated two children's stories, which I consider to be just the start of more to come!

Make your own jack’o’lantern totem: insert a sturdy wooden rod in the ground, cut holes into the tops and bottoms of each gourd, then stack your carved pumpkins 2 or 3 high. Clean out and carve small, decorative pumpkins, insert a tea light and line your walk as seasonal luminaries OR fill will scented candles and place around the home for decoration and aroma.
