Summer season recap!

CGFA Welcome Summer Picnic

The new year for the CGFA has kicked off to a great start! Our first event of the year, the Welcome Summer BBQ at Park on the Lid in Mercer Island, was a great time for the attendees to get together for delicious food and great conversation.

Anne Deines and Annie Rocks enjoy a good hug with their passive pups, Daisy and Rochelle.

We had fun seeing old friends and also welcoming new faces to the area. Although the weather was cloudy and cool, it wasn’t raining …

and around here that’s considered a huge success! The little ones were able to play on an adjacent playground to the picnic area and also had a big field to run around in. We had the softball fields to ourselves for some good ol’ whiffle ball and two sets of Corn Hole generously on loan from two departments on the CGC Midgett. We’re already looking forward to planning next year’s summer picnic and welcoming in even more new friends to the area.

CGFA August meeting and BINGO night

Our first meeting of the year was held on August 19 in the Bear Room on base. After a quick 15-20 minute meeting in which we ran over details for our upcoming events, the fun began with BINGO. We had official BINGO cards and played several game varieties. Everyone went home a winner courtesy of our prize exchange and our generous home product donations by Bed Bath & Beyond. It was great to see everyone get so excited about BINGO, which is really a very fun “sport.”

CGFA BBQ and Bake Sale

Thank you so much to those who were able to help bake, sell and buy at our annual fundraiser! it was held on August 28th at the base from 10:30am to 12:30 during the college fair. We received a ton of baked goods from our generous members and friends, and also had the help from several volunteers who made this day possible. A special thanks goes out to Layne Brummet, Stephanie Clark, Janet Price, Kat Haberlack, Alicia Jones, Ashleigh Simon and Natalie Simpson for helping sell at the booth. Also, thank you to the CGC Midgett for loaning us FS1 Doug Van Kampen and SN Neil England to help cook the food. We couldn’t have been so successful without the efforts of each person involved and we are very grateful to all of you.

Thank you again to everyone for continuing to play such a vital role in the CGFA. We are looking forward to many more events to plan throughout the year. As always, if you have any suggestions for types of gatherings you would like to see us host, we’re open for suggestions. Stay tuned for updates on our upcoming events: Saturday, September 22 is the Welcome Aboard Tea and in October we’ll have a Halloween-themed Bunco night. See you then!
