OWC tours Detrick, provides support for activities
The April meeting of the Officers' Wives' Club of Frederick was held at the Fort Detrick Community Activities Center. 
Following a brief business meeting and luncheon, Eileen Mitchell, Deputy Commander, U.S. Army Garrison Fort Detrick, escorted members on a bus tour of Fort Detrick. 
Mitchell pointed out new buildings, some under construction, and some soon to be demolished while giving a brief history of Fort Detrick and other interesting data.
Carol Loss, OWC President, and Maria Calcagni, OWC Liaison, presented Mitchell with two checks to Fort Detrick. One check was for the Food Voucher Program. 
A Food Voucher Jar is present at each luncheon for the OWC members to donate their loose change and dollars.  The second check was used to provide refreshments for the Military Spouses Appreciation Day that was held  May 6.
The OWC meets the third Wednesday of each month, September through May.  New members are welcome.
