SpouseFit promises fit, fun, fabulous event

Ditch the overhead projector and leave the dry, stuffy “death by briefings” to the folks in uniform. According to event organizers, Ramstein’s “SpouseFit” workshop, held on Feb. 22 and 23, promises to offer an interactive, fun experience for spouses of all ranks.

“We know the old routine,” said Jan Devitt, community support coordinator for the 86th Airlift Wing. “We’ve taken feedback from our spouses and built a new, one-of-a-kind experience that will allow spouses to build lasting friendships while learning a bit more from each other.”

Spouses are encouraged to dress comfortably, as the event will kick off with an introduction to a popular self-defense course. Door prizes will be awarded, and the event will feature several special guests.

“Our spouses sacrifice so much for our military families, and this gives us just one way to offer our support,” Devitt said. “And this is just the beginning. We hope that the experiences built from this event will allow friendships to bloom and for our spouses to know that we’re all in this together.”

Registration is required for the event and must be done by Feb. 17.

For more information or to register, email mary.devitt@us.af.mil. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb. 22 and 23 at the Ramstein Officers’ Club.

“We’re getting great participation, and the more the merrier!” Devitt said. “We’re building something special, and we’d like as many people as the club will allow us to have!”
