Air Guard Feature Story

Hello from the Airman and Family Readiness Office. Hard to believe it is March! Recently I found that March is (unofficially) National Nutrition Month. It is designed to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. Paying

attention to eating and exercise habits, and keeping fit and healthy is all part of our goal to “Be Ready”! There are many resources out there for assistance with weight management and fitness management. Consider partnering with a Military OneSource Health and Wellness Coaching Program coach. The Health and Wellness Coaching Program is a free resource for eligible individuals who wish to improve their health and

overall well-being. Here’s to improving our health habits this spring! Mark your calendars…Saturday April 13 we will be having an Easter Egg hunt here on base from 10-12. The egg hunt will be separated into 3 age groups. Each child will get a goodie bag, and there will be 2 special “Golden Eggs” per age group to find as well for a special prize. The Easter Bunny will be here so there will be photo opportunities, and a DJ will be spinning the tunes! This event is weather permitting. And, in case you didn’t know…. Daylight savings starts on Sunday March 10th so “spring ahead” your clocks an hour. March 20th is the first day of spring!!
