Image

WHEN: January 25th   1:30pm to 4:00pm

WHERE: Bear Room, USCG Base Seattle (1519 Alaskan Way South Seattle, WA 98134-1192)

Let’s start the year with a fun game of Bunco together! In case you aren’t familiar with the game it is a super cool and fun social dice game. No skills required except to know how to have fun and get to know each other. We will walk you through when you arrive and then just have a blast. 

Bring a $5 gift to exchange as part of the game (a usual Bunco custom for prizes) and a snack to share. We will provide water and soda for your Bunco enjoyment.

Please let us know if you can join us. RSVP at CGFApugetsound@gmail.com. Bunco is best when played with 12 or more players and we would love to get to meet new people, catch up with people we know and just have a great time.

See you there!

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!
