Dear WCSC Members,

Happy New Year! I truly hope your holidays were joyful and you were able to take some time to delight in the magic and excitement of the season. I have finished packing away the last few Christmas decorations and have visited my last Christmas Market of the year. I hope you are also excited for all of the “new” possibilities that 2017 has in store; a new workout plan, a new hobby, a new baby, a new PCS move, new friends to make, or even a new way to make a difference in our community.

This is the time of year that some of our Members move on to a new duty station and when we welcome new Members to the WCSC. If you have a “new” friend in the community, please bring them to one of WCSC’s fun activities or the monthly luncheon.

Last month’s Dessert Auction was our best yet! Thank you to all who baked, bid, and enjoyed... we raised nearly $1,200 for our Welfare Grants and Scholarships. Don't forget our canned and non-perishable food drive at the January luncheon...Share what you CAN, give what you CAN, because you CAN make a difference in the lives of so many in our Wiesbaden community.

This is also a busy time for the WCSC...February 4th is our Moonlight Masquerade Gala. If you have not purchased your tickets, you can easily do so via punchbowl.com. I have seen some of the auction items, and they are fabulous! Our talented Gala committee has worked so hard to make this an event to remember. This is a community event, so you do not have to be a WCSC member to attend so please be sure to invite your friends and neighbors. This will be an amazing evening to give back to our community and students, I hope to see you all there!

I hope 2017 brings you good health, wonderful adventures, and a chance to embrace the possibilities!

Best wishes for an amazing year,
Alicia Bailey
WCSC President

Priscilla Proper


"Hellllooo dahlings!  How possibly can the holidays be over sooooo soon? I entirely enjoyed the hustle and bustle of it all, especially here in Deutschland ! I trust that you and yours did as well? WUNDERBAR!! Though it is time to get back to the business at hand of discussing the delicate questions!  I promised a particular gal that I would answer her question most immediately. Short and sweet this time, so read on...
Dear Priscilla, 
Wonderful news! My husband was on a recently published selection list!  While I am THRILLED for and so proud of him as well, I feel terrible because a friend of ours was not selected this time and his wife is so disappointed. I have no idea what to say much less do? Can you help me handle this?
Signed, Happy Helen

Dear Double H,
How truly splendid for you Helen and I know you are so very proud of him. This life we call "the Army" can certainly include the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, and often at the very same time. So dahling dear, I say face it head on! Drop by and simply tell your friend that you are just as disappointed for them as they are and your joy would be much more complete if both your husbands had been selected. It is always better to talk about it openly than to pretend that everything is just the same and that news ( bad or good) doesn't exist. Eventually, the sting of disappointment will fade as they see and experience that your friendship does not and will not hinge upon future selections and lists!

Until next time, 
Priscilla
Daahlings! do you have a protocol question for our Priscilla Proper? Just email her at prisproper@gmail.com  and check back next month for her answer.
