Over 120 people attended the baseball-themed Right Arm Night held at the Community Activities Center on July 25. Right Arm Night is an old Army tradition promoting camaraderie. Leaders to come together with those standing to their right and left - the ones helping them get through daily missions. It is meant to build relationships while mixing and mingling with other leaders who have brought their battle buddies with them. The event offered stadium music, a personal appearance from Keyote - the Frederick Keys Baseball mascot, a baseball trivia contest, an audience “Shake Your Keys” contest, and free appetizers for all.
Contest winners included The Fort Detrick Child and Youth Services Division, who took home the Spirit Award, and the 21st Signal Brigade, who won the “Shake Your Keys” contest, winning valuable tickets to the J Bar W Ranch Bull Riding program. Sam’s Club provided free Cracker Jacks, peanuts and candy.
