MINI CLUBS

We are always looking for ways to bring our members together. Though each base may come with a sea of unfamiliar faces, the spirit and camaraderie that goes with being a military spouse remains unchanged. As people come and go, the dynamics of each group change, but the friendships created within them endure. If you have an idea for a new club then we'd love to hear from you! But in the meantime please read about all of our exciting opportunities below...we can't wait to see you there!  

(Mini-clubs generally run from Sep-May)
