6/24/2010 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass.  -- One year ago, on July 7, Hanscom's 66th Mission Support Squadron and 66th Services Squadron officially merged to create the 66th Force Support Squadron (66th FSS). The merger leveraged the strength of the two organizations by integrating complementary processes.

"It's been an amazing year," said Ms. Nanci Wildman, 66th FSS director. "These outstanding professionals have come together and built a formidable organization," she said, referring to the five higher headquarters and three air base wing awards won by the squadron this year.

In its first year, the 66th FSS combined readiness functions, education services and family support experts. These changes resulted in streamlined deployment functions and a new air base wing unit deployment manager, Ms. Wildman said. They also expanded leisure and educational programs, especially for youth and families.

To celebrate its birthday, on Wednesday, July 7, the FSS will host a party, with the Hanscom community as the invited guests. Party favors will include giveaways and special discounts at various locations:
  • Free Italian ice at several locations on base, including the pool parking lot, the Fitness and Sports Center and Hanscom Lanes complex, the Brown Building, the Patriot Golf Course, and the Fourth Cliff Recreation Area from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • A free bucket of balls at the Patriot Golf Course driving range
  • Half price automated and manual car washes
  • Three free bowling games including shoe rental at Hanscom Lanes
  • Free flight simulator at the Aero Club
  • Free swimming at the pool
  • Free ten-minute massage and massage chair at the fitness center
  • $6.60 propane refills at Outdoor Recreation
  • A $6.60 lunch specials at the Minuteman Club
  • A $6.60 lunch special at the 13th Frame Diner
  • Workshops and giveaways at the Airman and Family Readiness Center

More information about these and other special offers in honor of the squadron's birthday is available in the July issue of Leisure Times or on the Force Support Squadron webpage at www.hanscomservices.com.
