Our nextluncheon is one of my favorites! Bring your spouse (just yourself is fine too) and come tastesome good wine and eat some yummy stinky cheese! We will be playing the newlywed gameat this event as well which should make for a very funny evening.

According to our current President, Crissy Baker, beingPresident can be a big job, but the amount of support you get from the rest of the board and the community is amazing!She says that two good traits for the President are being a good listener and problem solver. She also says that Or-ganization is the key to success!! Crissy has enjoyed volunteering and making lifetime friends.1st VICE PRESIDENT - In charge of fundraising events. Kim Vega serves as 1st VP this year. Head of fundraisingsounds like a daunting task, but each fundraiser has an individual chairman. So the 1st VP helps these chairmen toensure the success of the events.2nd VICE PRESIDENT - In charge of planning our luncheons. Candice Coatney serves as 2nd VP this year. Shesays two good traits to have for this position are good people skills and an outgoing personality. You speak at eachluncheon, so not being afraid of public speaking helps!! She says that this year her creativity has soared with planningthe luncheons. She has met some great ladies ad has learned about money, event planning, foods, wines, fun gamesand more. Candice is so thankful to have had this opportunity to help the club give back to the community.SECRETARY - Records and submit minutes for Board meetings. Jenny Braden serves as Secretary this year. A goodlistener and note-taker is essential to this position. All board memberssubmit written monthly reports to the Secretary which helps in takingminutes at the meetings.The one common thread of all of the board positions ismaking lifetime friends. The FRCSC board accomplishesa lot each year and gives so much back to the Fort RuckerCommunity, but we manage to do this while having a lot offun!

Westerwald Pottery was the first to offer personalized stoneware, the first to use authentic cobalt brush decoration, and the first to sign, stamp, and date each piece in the line. While not the largest producer of hand-made pottery in the U.S.A., Westerwald Pottery has consistently maintained the highest standards of excellence. Westerwald pottery is wheel- thrown, brush decorated, and imprinted. Because every piece is handmade, no two products are exactly alike. The glazes are lead-free, microwave, and dishwasher safe. This is truly a collectible item. They are available at many military installa- tions around the world, but Fly Army and Fort Rucker are only available here. Prices from $17.50.
