“Thank You” to Our Advisors!

The Fort Gordon Spouses’ and Civilians’ Club would like to express its sincere gratitude and appreciation to our Advisors for the care & support shown to our organization this year. Thank you to Sharon Fogarty and Lori Pflieger for leading us to be the very best! We are grateful for your leadership and guidance!

The Thrift Shop will be open Saturday, May 2. The Thrift Shop will be closed the entire month of July! Happy Spring!

I wanted to thank you all for your contributions to the Club. It has been a fun year—full of lunches, events, and friendships. I hope that many of you will continue with FGSCC next year. We have several positions open on the board and would love to have the opportunity to see what you can bring to the table to make our FGSCC the best that it can be. I hope you all take the time to welcome the new FGSCC President, Melissa Ebbing, and your new Executive Board. As the 2014-2015 board year draws to an end and PCS season approaches, I have been trying to get ready to say “see you later” or “until our paths cross again” to many friends. I also have been looking back at the past year as I am getting ready to farewell the FGSCC membership as President. As I sit back and reflect on how quickly the past twelve months have gone, I find myself thinking about all the laughs and tears of the past year. It has been truly a journey. I can tell you that the 2014-2015 membership has made a positive impact on the Fort Gordon Community through our Community Outreach, Grants and Scholarships!

Even though we are looking ahead we still have a last luncheon. Our last event of the year is scheduled for 20 May. I hope you will come out and enjoy the fun filled day! It’s always a new and exciting time of year as we look back on the past year and get excited about the new year. I also want to take a moment to thank the 2014-2015 Board for their never-ending commitment to the FGSCC. It’s not always an easy commitment, but with a mission as great as ours, it’s worth it! In closing, I wish you all the best. Whether you’re leaving Fort Gordon, just joining us, or staying put for another year, I wish you all a safe summer full of fun and adventure!

Sincerely, Julie Maldonado

The 2014-2015 Board Members would like to thank Julie Maldonado, FGSCC President, for her dedication,

hard work and leadership this year. You will truly be missed! God’s speed

to you and your family in your next assignment!

Our March volunteer of the month is none other than Debbie Franco. Deb currently serves as the Grants Chairperson on the Governing Board. For

the past few months she has been working diligently to contact many members of the community who have requested grants. As leader of the Grants committee she presented, documented, and extended heartfelt thank you’s,

as well as notified recipients of their approvals. Deb has also been a major contributor

to the 2nd VP committee. She has dedicated many hours to helping execute plans to make sure

luncheons go off without a hitch. Deb is also a spirited volunteer who donates many hours at the

Thrift Shop. She is a humble servant in our community whom we could not do without. Thank

you so much for your helping hands and heart Deb…you truly are an asset and we

appreciate you!
