President's Message

 

 

 

Here’s to the 2016-2017 year of the National Guard Bureau Officers’ Spouses’ Club, our 61st year of service!

I hope you will consider joining NGBOSC and participating in the monthly activities we have in store for this year. The NGBOSC offers these activities and events to bring us closer together and to see a little of our surrounding area. We also raise money to support great causes like our Scholarship Program as well as our participation in the Wreaths Across America program.

Our annual Scholarship Awards Program is designed to award scholarships to the National Guard Bureau’s military and civilian families (children and spouses) for advanced education. Funds are raised mostly through our White House Ornament sales in July (Christmas in July Sale) and through the holiday season starting in October at the Army National Guard Readiness Center. These are collector items that make wonderful holiday gifts. We can make a difference in supporting our NGB families. Last year, we were able to award four scholarships to NGB dependents and we hope to increase these awards in the near future.

Also, last year was the first time we participated in the Wreaths Across America program at Arlington National Cemetery, assisting in the wreath-laying ceremony to honor the fallen. We plan to do this again this December. If you contribute monetarily to this program through our club, a portion of the proceeds will be given back to our Scholarship Fund. More information will be posted in the coming weeks.  

I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming events!

Naomi Francis
President
