Quilts of Valor
Join the Fort Rucker Arts & Craft Center as they host quilting workshops conducted by the Quilts of Valor Foundation. Come and join us as we endeavor to piece together quilts under the instruction of experienced Quilts of Valor quilters. Finished quilts will be presented to Wounded Warriors, as a show of honor and comfort. Any skill level can participate as various tasks of the quilting process will be needed. The free workshops are open to the public, ages 16 and over. Please RSVP a minimum of two days prior to workshop date. If you cannot attend the entire workshop, you can still participate. The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.

Timeless Turkey 5K
Make plans to be a part of Fort Rucker’s Timeless Turkey 5K at the Physical Fitness Center on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 8-10 a.m. The Timeless Turkey Prediction Run is not about being the fastest runner, but rather about the most accurately predicting your finish time. Those with the most accurate predictions will win a frozen turkey just in time for Thanksgiving. The exact course route will be kept a secret until race day. Watches, cell phones or other time-keeping devices are not allowed and the finish clock will not be visible to the runner. Patrons can register and enter you predicted times at either Fortenberry-Colton or PFC. This is a free run and bibs will be available for pick up on race day. For more information, please contact the PFC at 255-2296.
