President’s Welcome

President’s Welcome

Lynne DonahueHello! I want to personally welcome you to the Wright Patterson Officers’ Spouses’ Club (WPOSC)!

This is our 71st year of giving back to the community. A lot has changed in the past 71 years and we know as changes happen every day within the Air Force, the WPOSC will also need to change and adapt to meet the current needs of our membership.

This club has seen many members come and go over the past seven decades. We can only hope that we maintain our legacy of doing good and giving back to our community while supporting each other as spouses. Many of you have weathered several wars, many deployments, and PCS moves and have always found a home within the OSC. Our members are as unique as a fingerprint, each leaving a lasting impression on our organization and in the lives of each person that we encounter.

Our Governing Board is made up of a diverse group of individuals whose experience ranges from brand new to the military lifestyle to some having well over 30 years’ experience on the board. The WPOSC offers many activities and volunteer opportunities. We offer everything from antiques and bunco to play group. Mah Jongg is our pride and joy! If you have played at any other base, chances are you have used the Wright Patterson rules to play the game!

We have many ways that you can get involved and give back to the community. One is our fantastic Base Thrift Shop. It’s located by the Outdoor Rec facility, Bldg. 95 in Area A… just follow the signs to find it! All proceeds from the thrift shop are given back to the community and to scholarships via our welfare committee. The thrift shop is always looking for volunteers to help out with this great cause!

The National Museum of the United States Air Force is right here in our backyard! Our OSC has a group of volunteers who are museum guides and have the opportunity to be in that fabulous place and proudly teach museum goers about the history. If you are interested, this is a unique opportunity ONLY found here at Wright Patterson.

We have several special interest groups like the International Spouses Group and the Retired Officers’ Wives’ and Widows’ Group. Both of these groups are filled with amazing and remarkable individuals who really round out our membership. Their experience, unique perspectives and the functions they sponsor are unparalleled. Be sure to check our calendar for upcoming events that are not to be missed!

Enjoy the activities, cherish the friendships both old and new. Remember our purpose to do good things for our community AND have fun. I am thrilled and honored to be entrusted with this amazing organization and know we will leave her in good hands and ready to face the next 71 years!

Proud to serve,
Lynne Donahue
WPOSC President 2015-2016
