Dahlgren Officers' Spouses' Club

DOSC

Monthly Meetings

Our meetings are held September through May.  We also conduct a Scholarship and Charities Award Banquet in May/June.  We meet at members' homes or local establishments.  Notice of meetings is sent usually via emails and through our monthly newsletter.

Events and Programs

Second Tour Thrift Shop (year-round): This is the little thrift shop that could! Second Tour opens one morning a week and is DOSC's largest generator of charitable funds.  Its operation depends entirely upon the generosity of volunteers from DOSC, as well as donated goods from the community.  Because it is such a large part of DOSC efforts, it has its own page!  Please see the Second Tour Thrift Shop link above for more information.

Chat and Chew Lunches/Dinners (year-round):  Monthly social events sponsored by the retired spouses to provide members with the opportunity to eat and visit with each other.  Invitations are issued via email, so be sure to join DOSC!

 

Fall Membership Social (September): Our kick off event for the year!  Come meet new and returning members.  Discussion of our planned events and programs takes place -- so be sure to put the date on your calendars.

Social Events (year-round): Our Social Co-ordinator works hard to organise other fun activities such as Bunco nights, book club, outings to local attractions & family days out.

Drop in Coffee Morning (year-round): On the first Friday of each month we invite members to get together at Gray's Landing coffee shop on the base (where they brew Starbucks!)  This is an informal affair so just show up around 9am - children are welcome.

Holiday Ornament Exchange (December):  A fun event for adding to your ornament collection. 

Charities and Scholarship (February through June):   DOSC is proud of its charitable donation program!   Applications and deadlines are posted on the website and at meetings as the time draws near.  Membership committees meet to determine recipients based on DOSC by-laws.  A celebration award ceremony is held in June to congratulate the scholars and organizations.

Do You Have an Idea of Your Own?

Since our members have lived everywhere around the world, we have seen many Officers' groups.  You probably have some great ideas from previous stations that would be great here as well.  Talk to a Board Member if you have something that will add to our Dahlgren community!
