Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall Make this “the most wonderful time of the year” with JBM-HH FMWR JBM-HH Marketing

The time is coming where most of our social activities will take place inside due to the change in seasons. Instead of lounging poolside, we’ll be inside celebrating fall and winter holidays. This year, consider bringing your celebration to the Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall (JBM-HH) clubs – or join one of their parties already in progress! Looking for something new to do on date night? The JBM-HH Fort Myer Officers’ Club host a weekly Latin themed dinner dance and special live performances throughout any given month. One of the club’s more wellattended events is the annual Oktoberfest dinner. Guests are treated to a traditional and authentic German meal accompanied with music provided by an authentic German band. The club also offers a New Year’s Eve party complete with party favors, three course dinner and champagne toast. Want to treat your taste buds to a new experience? The Sunday Brunch trend is still very popular and JBM-HH serves a first class meal. The Fort Myer Officers’ Club and Spates Community Club both serve a Sunday Brunch menu to include breakfast favorites such as pancakes, eggs, hash browns, carving stations with ham and roast beef and seafood pasta. Planning and executing a holiday meal can be overwhelming, not to mention the aftermeal clean-up. Consider bringing your family

to one of the clubs for your next holiday meal. Enjoy a Thanksgiving meal at one of several seating times at any of the three JBM-HH clubs. Mark your calendars to enjoy Brunch with Santa at Spates Community Club. Santa will be taking pictures with children and handing out goodie bags (while supplies last). Looking for a family activity that involves physical activity? How about bowling? The JBH-HH Bowling Center has plenty of lanes, an updated and state-of-the-art scoring system and a snack bar to feed the team between games. Shoe rental and games cost much less than “outside” the gate and lanes are almost

always available on weekends! In addition to these events, the JBM-HH clubs are available for customers as a venue for hosting special occasions. The clubs are centrally located in Arlington, VA, offer ample parking, and affordable room rental and catering rates. “We happen to sit just a short distance from the Nation’s Capital and right around the corner from the Pentagon,” said Christina Darensbourg, JBM-HH Business Operations Division Chief. “It’s convenient for our patrons to take a short drive and use our facilities,” Darensbourg said. “We have quite a few catering options and venues to choose from and since we work with active duty and retired service members, their families, and the Department of Defense civilian workforce all the time, we completely understand the special circumstances and requests they may have.”

Two Events That Are A Must See

What’s the longest running show on Broadway? Think you know the answer? Are you sure? Well, it’s actually the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®! Since 1924, the Parade has kicked off the holiday season with glorious bands, balloons and floats. For a complete history of the parade, check out Macy’s Parade History website. It all started in 1924 as Macy’s employees treated Manhattan to the city’s first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®. The response was so overwhelming that the founders declared it would be an annual event. It was in 1928 that the famous helium-filled balloons were first released at the end of the parade. The following year, the balloons were fitted with safety values allowing them to remain airborne for several days. And, as an added feature, a return address was placed on the balloons. If you were lucky enough to find one and return it to Macy’s, you received a prize! In 1934 the Parade saw the first collaboration between Macy’s and the now famous Walt Disney Productions. It was that year that saw the introduction of the Parade’s first Mickey Mouse balloon. As time went on and the popularity of the parade increased, viewers now show up at Central Park on Wednesday night before the big event. It’s there that the Macy’s employees and volunteers finish blowing up the big bal-

loons and the spectators come out for a closeup view of the event. Warning, you now have to get there early as well, because more and more spectators show up each year for this special occasion. What should you bring to view the parade? Dress warm! Even if the weather reports are for warmer temperatures, you have to get to your favorite location early to view the parade. And you will be standing for a long time at that location. And the wind is always blowing in the canyons of New York City between the tall skyscrapers, so bundle up and wear the extra woolen socks. You can always remove layers if the sun warms you up. Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade kicks off the holidays with unparalleled pomp and pageantry. The scale of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is immense: more than 3.5 million people view the parade live along the parade route, and more than 50 million viewers tune in to the television broadcast. Spectators watch in awe as 10,000 participants — including the nation's best marching bands, performance groups, giant helium balloons, breathtaking floats and the one-and-only Santa Claus — pass before their eyes. If you'd like to get a chance to see the balloons as they get blown up, on Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009 you can observe the inflation of the 25 balloons from 3 - 10 p.m. near the American Museum of Natural History just off
