Dear Carlisle Barracks Spouses’,
As President of the Carlisle Barracks Spouses’ Club, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Carlisle Barracks and the Army War College. The post and surrounding communities have many wonderful opportunities for you and your family! Make sure to see the sights, visit gorgeous downtown Carlisle and the local businesses!
Our CBSC Luncheon programs are held the third Wednesday of the month, September through May. They are held at the Letort View Community Center (LVCC) from 1030-1330. We have fun programs/themes, opportunity prizes, many local vendors, our own Ways & Means for shopping, and different monthly organizations that we support with donated items from our members through our Outreach Program.
We have two evening programs, October and November, this year. These programs are a Couple’s Night Out events! Your spouses are welcome!
On Friday, 23 October, we will have our very popular, History and Legends’ Program. Historian, Janeal Jarroh, shares her History Trunk Show. A fun evening for you and your spouse!
Friday, 13 November, is our Denim to Diamonds Auction! Mark your calendars early and don’t miss this exciting evening! We will have both a Live and Silent Auction! The evening is full of fun, food, laughter and of course…bidding! So bring your checkbooks and credit cards to support this fantastic fundraiser. Our biggest one of the year! These monies go to support our Welfare and Scholarship grants. Allowing CBSC to continue supporting many organizations and scholarships.
In the spring, we will also sponsor two other fun fundraisers. Duck Derby (you can buy your ducks all year and enter a chance to beat the Command Duck in a race down Letort Creek) and our 2nd Annual CBSC Golf Scramble! Mark your calendars!
Our club offers a variety of activities to our members. We offer Book Clubs (day and evening), Gourmet Club, Bunco, Wine Club, Quilting and Crafting Club to name a few.
Are you looking for a way to experience as much of Carlisle and the surrounding area as possible while you are here?! We have our own Tourista Group! Every month we offer a planned tour! Some tours planned; Yuengling Brewery (spouses welcome), Philadelphia Flower Show, Gettysburg, Mifflinburg Christkindlmart, Amish Farm House, Roots Open Air Market. Just to name a few!
New this year, in addition to our bus tours, we are offering “informal” tours! No bus, no prepayment, no rsvp’s! We will be carpooling!
This is an exciting time for our club as we continue to grow and we hope that you will join in the friendship and mutual support. Become a CBSC member and join in the Fun!
This past year we gave over $23,000 in scholarships and outreach to High school seniors and military spouses and to local and national charities benefiting the military and local communities.
Please contact me with any questions you may have! I look forward to meeting you. Again, welcome to Carlisle Barracks Spouses’ Club!!
