TOP STORY >> Carnival celebrates military families

Team Little Rock celebrates Month of the Military Family on Saturday, Nov. 12 with a free carnival-themed party featuring games, competitions and family fun.

The event is a way for the base to thank the military family for their unwavering support.

“It’s been another busy year for Team Little Rock, filled with challenges and successes,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Charles Brown, 19th Airlift Wing commander. “We’re the best at what we do, but we couldn’t do it without the support of families and friends. I encourage you to take time out to join us as we celebrate you, our military family.”

This year’s carnival theme is “Something for Everyone” with events and activities designed to highlight the diversity of military families. Whether married, single or retired, everyone is invited to partake in the festivities.

“The theme is all-inclusive,” said Wayne Ojala, Airman & Family Readiness Center community readiness consultant. “The military family is anyone who has served their country; this is our way of thanking them.”

 Team Little Rock members – families and single Airmen alike – are invited to participate in a fun-filled day of free food, games, contests and challenges to include a car show and hayride.

The event, hosted by the AF&RC, will begin at 10 a.m. at the Walters Community Support Center and includes a free lunch. The event will conclude and 1 p.m. when prizes are awarded for the myriad of events.
