WACOM announces upcoming events

WACOM has scheduled several community events during the next few weeks.

On Tuesday, April 10, WACOM will hold its monthly meeting at 11 a.m. in the Paradise Cove Community Center. Sounds of Springtime, led by Father Jim Dowds and Shirley Helmick, will provide entertainment. Lunch is available for $15 per person.

On Saturday, April 28, the WACOM Thrift Shop will be open in conjunction with Community Day on base. The store, regularly open on weekdays from 9 a.m. to noon, will also be open from 9 a.m. to noon on Community Day.

On Tuesday, May 8, WACOM will hold its semi-annual distribution of funds to the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society and other local nonprofit groups. Every six months the organization donates some $30,000 raised through its volunteer-operated thrift shop on base.

“If you are interested in joining WACOM, please come to a luncheon and see what we’re about,” invited a spokesperson. For more information or to RSVP for a luncheon, email wacommembers@gmail.com.
