Letter from our Presidents

Spring is here!! Even with the wonderful weather we have in San Diego, there’s something better about spring.  Flowers are in bloom, the temperatures are just perfect and we aren’t in the dog days of summer yet.
Spring also means the Coronado Flower Show. By now you probably know that the Sand Dollar Shops are the primary reason NOSC is able to give so much to scholarships and charities.  The shop volunteers work tirelessly throughout the year to make sure we have beautiful merchandise available for purchase. The Coronado Flower show is the annual event where the shops showcase everything for the public.  Everything from the stores is made available at the two-day flower show and this event is not only a huge undertaking, but also an important one.  It raises necessary funds and awareness about who we are and what we do.
That all being said, what we need now, is YOU!  We need volunteers to help set up and take down our display at the Flower Show.  There is more information in the newsletter about how to contact Lisa Stoneman to volunteer.  Please consider lending a hand and helping to support us in this mission.
We continue to have a slate of fun events being planned…our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party was a wild success and this month we have our annual Wine and Cheese Tasting.  The format this year is a bit different than previous years, with a true focus on wine and cheese pairings. It’s going to be a fantastic event.
We are also pleased to announce we have a full slate for the NOSC board for next year.  Many thanks to all who came to our “look and see” meeting last month.  The board continues to do great work and NOSC will be in great shape for 2014-2015.  With that, we look forward to seeing you at some of our monthly events!
Denise and Rosemary

"As military spouses, watching out for each other is what we do best.  That connection gives us strength, joy and comfort.  NOSC provides an opportunity for all of that and more – common interests to share, goals to achieve together, and the enormous satisfaction that comes from giving back."
