VA: Special Event for Military Spouses

I received this from my OMBUDSMAN and thought since some of my readers may be in the Virginia/Hampton Roads area I’d pass it along! This sounds like a LOT of fun!! This even is for card carrying military spouses only.

From 5 to 9 p.m. May 20 at the Hampton Holiday Inn Ballroom on Mercury Boulevard, military spouses are invited to attend “Night Under the Stars.”

The free event is open to spouses from all branches of the military. It will include, among other services, massages, manicures, eyebrow waxing and arts and crafts.

In 2007, more than 1,300 military spouses attended the event. More than 30 vendors set up booths “similar to a job fair displaying their products along with free samples,” according to a press release.

This year, event organizers expect 2,000 spouses to attend and more than 60 local businesses to participate.

To reserve a ticket, call the Airman and Family Readiness Center on Langley Air Force Base at 757-764-3990.

Bring your military ID card to get in.

I wouldn’t miss this for the WORLD! See you there?


  1. That does sound like a blast! We have a ministry at our church for Single Moms. We do it the weekend (Saturday) before Mother’s Day. We pamper them and serve them lunch. We’ve invited military spouses to attend one year, but we had so much trouble getting the information out to them.

    Any suggestions for this year? It’s kind of ironic because my husband is recently retired military from here. Even he had trouble getting through to someone who’d help us. May have to do with confidentiality?
