Message from the President Hello Members! Wow! What a whirlwind of a month RESA had! We had so many amazing things happening in May. Our amazing volunteers helped with the deployed families bowling event on Vogelweh this month, it is such an amazing program and we are so excited to help with this event. We also had our annual deployment buddies picnic for the children whose parents were deployed during the school year. A huge thank you to Nicole Little, Alana Lowry and Kaycee Livesay for all their hard work they put into making the picnic a success. We also had a Thrift Shop Saturday, meet and greet and USO breakfast, thank you to all the amazing volunteers who helped with every event! In May we also had the KMC Spouse and University Scholarship ceremony, we have three members who won scholarships! Congratulations Nicole Little, Michelle Arredondo, and Amanda Rummel! This month we will host the Quarterly Airman Birthday Dinners and help Ramstein Elementary School with their June Bug Out. We will also host our monthly meet and greet as well as thrift shop night crew. Please be on the lookout for the events to be posted in the RESA Facebook page and an email of upcoming events. Our June Social will be our annual membership drive and Wine Tasting event with Herr Arnold. I hope everyone is as excited as I am for this event! Be sure to RSVP and you can be entered to win a prize for bringing a guest! I hope to see you all there!! With the summer time just around the corner, I want to remind our members that thrift shop is always in need of volunteers to help during the busy summer months. You can earn $1 in thrift shop bucks for every hour you spend volunteering. Just a friendly reminder that volunteer opportunities are the heart of RESA and a wonderful way for us to show our love and support for our local community and just one of the many ways we give back. As RESA members volunteering is never expected but always appreciated! If you have any questions about upcoming volunteer opportunities, Nicole Little, our Vice President ( has a wealth of information and would be more than happy to answer questions you may have. Sincerely, Kendra
