Discovering Puerto Rico and its Attractions

Aibonito’s Festival de las Flores

A flower and plant lover’s heaven. This annual plant, flower, gardening and landscaping festival features exhibits and the sale of the most popular and newest varieties of tropical flowers and plants, as well as pottery, garden accessories and fertilizers. Varieties of bromeliads, orchids, cactus, bonsais, fruit plants, bougainvilleas; annuals and perennials, are only a few of the beauties you may find at this market. It all started in 1957 when the Third Gardening Club of Aibonito organized a plant and shrub exhibition to entertain attendants. The concept was ellaborated even further with the enthusiasm of exhibitors, and in 1969 it acquired a commercial character, becoming one of the most attended gardening events in the island. It extends some 25 acres of land, and exhibits the products of more than 40 florists and farmers. Gardening enthusiasts from all around the island visit the 10 day long event every year. This year you may enjoy the trip to this festival with ACS Relocation Readiness Program on Friday, July 1st, leaving at 7:00 am and returning at 6:00 pm. For details or to sign-up call 787-707-3290 / 3310.

Armed Forces Day Event To unify troops

On May 20th 2011 the resonant echoes of military candences where heard throughout the entire installation as military troops ran the traditional Armed Forces Day two mile route. This year was COL. John D. Cushman’s and CSM Derrick Simpson’s first time as leaders of the run in Fort Buchanan. As a day designated by the Army to pay tribute to Men and Women who serve in the Armed Forces, troops from Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard participated and were judged for uniformed formation, uniformity, motivation, and integrity.

Celebrating the Strength of our Nation: The Army’s 236th Birthday COL John D. Cushman and CSM Derrick Simpson leading the troops.

We thank our event’s sponsors for their great contribution!

Lunch was sponsored by Outback Steakhouse.

No official US Army endorsement implied. Choose a designated driver, do not drink & drive.

Team Member Highlight Juan Carlos Rodriguez joined the DFMWR team in June of 2007 as a Laborer. Golf Course Manager, Mr. Jim Doulin has to say about Juan Carlos: “Since my tenure Juan Carlos has been one of the most dedicated employees at the Golf Course Complex. He is continuously performing a variety of duties and tasks including supporting numerous activities and facilities. He is most willing and eager to assist with junior golf functions and introducing the golf course to the general population. He recently has been involved with the Deployed Students Day when he actively introduced the role of the Golf Course and DFMWR to students of deployed military. Juan Carlos volunteers to assist the golf operations when there’s a shortfall in staffing or capabilities. His dedication ensures the continuance of operations and maintains a high level of customer satisfaction. Although Juan Carlos’ primary duties are mowing and maintenance, he routinely supports the Marketing department, Community Club & Conference Center, Special Events and NAF Services Branch. From January 2009 until 2011, Juan Carlos was appointed the Golf Course Safety Officer and was instrumental in improving the safety operations of the golf course. Juan Carlos is also one of four employees trained and able to operate the self-propelled vertical elevating & boom supported lift vehicles. We congratulate Juan Carlos for a job well done!

“Let us also remember that for generations, we have done the hard work of protecting our own people, as well as millions around the globe. We have done so because we know that our own future is safer, our own future is brighter, if more of mankind can live with the bright light of freedom and dignity.” --President Obama, Washington, March 28th, 2011 The Continental Army was established 236 years ago on this day- established to defend fledging colonies and secure our independence from oppression. Since that time- from Bunker Hill to Bagdad and from Cold Harbor to KandaharAmerican Soldiers have been the safeguard of our Nation’s freedom and a shield from oppression for our friends and allies. Throughout our history, our mission has remained constant- to preserve America’s peace and security, and to provide for the defense of the United States. Today we continue to do this at home and abroad by fielding the most disciplined, competent and fit force in the world and maintaining the bonds of trust that unite us both as Soldiers and as Americans. As we look to the future and recognize the challenges of this dynamic international security environment and the threats it may pose, we know that America’s Army will confront each with the same unsurpassed courage, selflessness and dedication that has characterized our history for 236 years. On the occasion of our birthday, we want to thank each of you- the Soldiers, Civilians, Families and Veterans who have sacrificed and persevered throughout our history to make our Army the “Strength of our Nation.” Happy Birthday!

The Fort Buchanan CYS Services was selected by the MCT to provide a one week performing arts production Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs from May 9th-14th, 2011. The presentation was directed by actor Erick Heuchert and actress Calida Davis. It was a weeklong theatrical educational, fun opportunity for children, youth, and teens to share with family and friends. Children between the ages of 6 to18 were auditioned and all thirty were selected to be part of this phenomenal presentation. Auditions started on May 9th, with rehearsals starting that same day and continued daily until May 13th. The show was presented on May 14th at Antilles High School Auditorium with amazing results!!! Those who had the opportunity to observe the accelerated learning process that participating children went through can only admire the patience, dedication and professionalism of these directors, with the skills to transform unexperienced children into confident actors. Over 200 people attended this presentation and were delighted with the candor and display of talent our community youth demonstrated.
