Where? USCG Base Seattle – COHO ROOM

A great fun, festive event for you and your family! Come decorate cookies with us and bring some cookies to exchange.

As we get closer to the date, we will let you know how may cookies to bring. We promise it won’t be a huge number of cookies (HA HA HA!) We will have some items to use to decorate the cookies but please feel free to bring your favorite cookie decoration tools.

Feel free to also bring a quick appetizer to share so we don’t gobble up all the cookies. There will also be a small craft for the kids to work on if they are done decorating their cookies. It should be a jolly good time to meet families, catch up AND see what the CGFA has to offer for you and your family.

More details to come!

Fall is here!

2 Nov

The Fall weather is officially upon us and we are celebrating it in true Pacific Northwest style … in raincoats. But thankfully the weather showed mercy and kept the rain at bay during our Pumpkin Carving Party at the admiral’s house.

D13 Admiral Taylor and Mrs. Taylor graciously opened their beautiful home and property to the district families for a festive pumpkin carving party. Of course bring-your-own-pumpkin bylaws were in effect but some awesome treats, grilled hot dogs, and warm apple cider and hot chocolate were provided for those who attended. It was a fun day!

We had a great turn out and several of our families were able to meet each other in person and introduce their children. We must say, the pumpkin carving talent in the Coast Guard is definitely apparent. There were some really creative final products.

We sincerely thank the Taylors for welcoming us and offering the opportunity to get to know them better. A sense of community is very important to the military lifestyle and our goal at the CGFA is to build on the connections we make through our CGFA planned events and beyond. We want to thank Mrs. Taylor for aiding us in our mission.

We hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! Stay tuned for updates on future events!
