TRAVIS SPOUSES CLUB NEWSLETTER

October 2021

Hello October!

October brings us two exciting member's socials!


BUNCO at the famous Heretic Brewing Company! Due to the nature of the game you will get a chance to meet almost every single participant! It is a fun game and cash prizes are the best! Our giveaway of the night will be an II Fiorello Olive Oil Company tasting for two and a gift set!


Our second social of the month we are taking a Road trip to Winters, California. Founded in 1875, Winters claimed a special place in California's history as the Sacramento Valley's commercial center for agriculture and passenger rail service. Throughout the years, Winters has retained its historic charm and rural lifestyle. We will take a tour of the Zen Terra Spa and Hotel Winters followed by lunch at a local restaurant. Our giveaway for this social will be a gift basket that will include a night stay at Hotel Winters!


If you haven't noticed already, Travis Spouses Governing Board elected to giveaway experiences at each of our member's socials. Experiences that will allow you to explore our local area and enjoy the company of your significant other or a friend. We truly hope you enjoy every opportunity to participate at our socials or our volunteer opportunities!

Since 2004, Operation Cookie Drop brings Holiday Cheer to dorm residents who are away from home during the Holiday season. Held on the first Wednesday of December, volunteers from all over the county join forces, year after year, to help bring this event to life.

Travis Air Force Base houses approximately 1200 dorm residents. Dorm Resident are single airmen who are new to the military. For most of these young airman, this is their first holiday season away from home.

COVID-19 has given us the opportunity to revamp the program with safety measures in mind while still providing a token of appreciation to our young dorm residents.

Help us reach our goal of providing a gift to all of our Travis Air Force Base dorm residents!

Gifts will include: $5 gift card, prepackaged sugar cookie, package of hot cocoa, candy cane, holiday card, a mug, and most important, a message of support from our community members!
