The Fort Hood Area Enlisted Spouses Club will host its annual membership drive at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Montague Community Life Center at West Fort Hood.

Themed “Night at the Oasis,” the event will feature belly dance lessons from a fellow member, plus food and door prizes for attendees.

The club’s goal is to better the community by working within it, said Kathryn Messerschmidt, club president. They work frequently with organizations like the Hope Pregnancy Center to collect donations for families, often managing to give back to the local community and its military members at the same time. The club also partners with the Fort Hood Officers’ Spouses’ Club for events throughout the year.

Along with their volunteer efforts, it is a social club where spouses can get together and meet people across the installation, Messerschmidt said.

“We have spouses who are brand new to the military and others who’ve been spouses for well over 20 years,” she said. “It’s a good mix of people.”

There are 75 people in the club.

The spouse of any rank of enlisted soldier, active duty, reservist or retired, is invited to join.

The yearly dues are $25 and after that, “we try to have our members not pay another penny,” Messerschmidt said.

General membership meetings will be on the fourth Thursday of each month, said Lety Ford, the club publicity chair. RSVP for the membership drive on the Fort Hood Area Enlisted Spouses Club Facebook page.

For the next several days, I will be following the mission and daily lives of Ironhorse troopers as they begin a nine-month rotation in the land of the morning calm.
