February! This is a month full of contradictions. It’s our shortest month, but it always seems to be jam-packed! February is also American
Health month, but at the same time it’s National Snack Food Month. Now how can I be healthy while celebrating Superbowl Snacks and
Girl Scout Cookies??! It turns out that February is also Chocolate Lovers Month and International Friends Month. Now those two are right
up my alley!
Speaking of friends and chocolate, we had a fabulous time at our White Elephant Dark Chocolate event last month. Thanks to all who
attended and to our lovely host, Robin Paluso. I’d recommend we continue celebrating friends and chocolate every month
undefined so let’s do just that with our evening of painting at the Hot Spot in Point Loma coming up on February 27th. Information on this
event has already gone out, so be sure to check the NOSC website if you have more questions.
Our calendar continues to be full of fun activities so I encourage you to get out and get involved! We also have a chance for you to give back to
NOSC in the next few months. Both the Charities and Scholarships Committees will soon be in need of a team of volunteers to review applications.
These committees only meet a few times in the spring and can be a great way to volunteer on a limited basis. Plus they’re fun----you are able to
be a part of the group that has a direct financial impact on wonderful organizations and hard-working students! If you are interested in either of
these committees, please see their sections in the newsletter below.
So for this month…forget about Bird Feeding Month and Cat Health Month and instead let’s focus on chocolate, friends and the
awesome-ness that is you, the Navy Spouse (after all it’s also International Boost Self-Esteem Month)!
