Dear Members, Having lived at seven bases within the states and abroad, the customs, the language, and even the weather have varied. One constant has always remained: being in the company of those men and women who always gave more than they asked for, who always came when called. To have served as President for two terms of such a group of individuals here in Germany, has been tremendous. I am honored and humbled by the faith you entrusted in me. Yet I, too, have had faith in all of you. Faith that we would endeavor to reach out to those spouses who are not here. Faith that at the end of our time here, each one of us would feel a tie to this community because we have worked to make

it a better place for all who have called it home. There is so much we have accomplished together. I have had the opportunity to work with 21 different Board Members during the past two years. I greatly appreciate the effort and dedication that every member has put forth. Additionally, to the 2013 Board – Thank you for all your hard work and devotion to RESA this past year. Together we have accomplished so much and have touched so many lives. To the 2014 Board – We are giving you an organization with a substantial foundation, yet it has so much potential to become even greater! I wish you all a prosperous year! My time here has been filled with great memories everything from

Athena

the

Athena went on vacation in October. Can you guess where she’s been?

volunteering at our Thrift Shop, squeezing lemons, to attending meetings, dinners, parties and shopping trips. For me, RESA has been a rewarding experience. I’ve made so many friends and learned so much. I believe that Harriet Naylor best captured the heart of every volunteer when she wrote “Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one’s ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them”. Thank you, everyone! I have thoroughly enjoyed representing the Ramstein Enlisted Spouses’ Association as your President! Sincerely, Eva
