HO! HO! HO!

Greetings from Santa's Helper! It's that fun time of the year of holiday cheer and special moments for all. The SOSC has many memory-making events in the coming weeks, so please carefully review this issue of The Contact and our website and ensure you mark your calendars. The December luncheon is on the morning of December 12th, followed  the next day by  the SOSC annual Operation Cookie Drop and gift wrapping at the BX from Nov 23 until Dec 24. All of these events will be worldclass!  It truly is great to have so many of you Elves participating  and offering your special talents.....our club is really taking off!

After watching many of you at the "Make It, Bake It, Take It" and Weingarten events, I have no doubt that you all survived the Black Friday shopping

crowds with no problems! The SOSC has had some great programs this year and we must thank our great programs chairs! Thank you ladies:)) As we type this one of our main Elves will be  retiring to Hawaii, Mrs. Diana Johns. I would like to extend a big THANK YOU from all of us for her support to the SOSC over the past few years. We wish Mrs. Diana Johns and her family all the best, and we welcome General and Mrs. Selva to the Scott family! As the ball drops in Times Square ushering in the New Year, we'll see more activities

YOU ANN R SOUR C OUN CEM E FOR N E EW NT EVEN TS A S, UPCO S, M ND M OR E I N G !

coming our way. The current Januar y 9th function is BUNCO, which will be held at the VFW, right outside the Belleville gate. More information will be heading your way (check out the flier inside:)....so plan to attend for food, fun and loud yells of BUNCO!!   Though we will all soon begin the countdown of the number of shopping days left until Christmas, please take a moment to remember that those deployed in harms way have left their loved ones (spouses & kids) here.  Let's be sure to reach out to them with acts of kindness and holiday cheer so that all may truly experience this season of giving! Here's wishing you & yours a very Happy Holiday Season! Happy New Year too! Deb Arquiette & the Board of Governors 2012-2013

THRIFT SHOP NEWS The Thrift shop will close on Friday, December 14th at 2:00pm for the holiday break and will reopen on Wednesday, January 2nd at 9:00am. We would like to wish all of our customers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

AIR FORCE VILLAGE Air Force Village Annual Meeting By Annisa Chesnut 2nd Vice President - AFOWC Every other year, Air Force Village, located in San Antonio, Texas, invites spouse clubs worldwide to send delegates to their annual meeting in October.  President, Sue Brown and I had the honor of representing the AFOWC at their annual meeting las month.  Thirty four other delegates from 11 different OWC/OSCs were also in attendance.

Air Force Village is a fully accredited Continuing Care Retirement Community.   AFV provides independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, Alzheimer/Dementia, and Hospice care to retired and honorably separated Officers and spouses aged 62 and above, widowed spouses, and parents and grandparents of Active Duty Officers.  Also, Families of Officers who die on Active duty are allowed a one year stay.    During our stay, President and CEO, Lt General (ret) Chip Utterback, briefed the delegates on the history, the mission, and current needs of Air Force Village.  We toured the state of the art facilities, visited with the residents, and learned about the benefits of living in a retired community setting.   On Thursday evening, we attended the Chairman's Dinner where General Mark Welsh, Chief of Staff of the Air Force, was the guest speaker. AFV was founded in 1964 by spouse clubs to provide a home for Air Force Officers' widows or widowers in financial need.  On Thursday, we were honored to attend the Legacy Luncheon with Mrs. Betty Welsh and several widows.  These women have fascinating stories of their time in the Air Force and it was such an privilege to spend time with them.  These widows are the embodiment of why Air Force Village was created and the need to provide financial support for them continues today.  Over the past 5 years, AFV has provided 4 million dollars in order to care for those widows who are in financial need.   Unfortunately, the need for financial support has increased, while the charitable contributions have decreased.  In 2008 worldwide donations from OSCs totaled $72,800.  In 2011 worldwide donations from OSCs only totaled $59,000.  The AFOWC continues to be a leader in supporting the vision and mission that Mrs. LeMay founded in 1964.  This year the AFOWC proudly contributed $10,000 to Air Force Village to support Widows in Need and the Freedom House, which cares for the residents who need specialized Alzheimer/Dementia care.   For more information or to contribute please go to www.airforcevillages.com or call 210- 568-3211. 

SOSC Monthly Service Project Did you know? The SOSCA donates $300 a year to Air Force Village.

At the December luncheon we will be collecting cookies for the Airmen Appreciation cookie drive, as well as unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots. Check out pages 8-9 & 15 for details!

Congratulations to Scott AFB on being recognized in this month's OSD Exceptional Advocate for their participation in the Outdoor Sports Festival, 8 Sept in Decatur. Members of Scott partnered with a local nonprofit organization training athletes to compete against other special needs athletes across the state of Illinois with great success. With amazing support from the EFMP-FS Specialist Brenda Reed, Alice Howe, the Scott AFB A&FRC, and family members, these athletes (many first time competitors) brought home five individual medals and one ribbon, participated in an awards ceremony, dinner and dance. In spite of the weather related challenges, these athletes showed the true resiliency of military families when faced with adverse conditions. Again, excellent work team Scott and thank you for what you do for our military families!
