5/17/2012 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- As a result of Global Base Support position reductions, the 13th Frame Diner is scheduled to close May 26 and convert to a resiliency center later this fall.

Hanscom Lanes will remain open and a mini-snack bar will be available beginning May 29 for refreshments.

"The community can still count on bowling," said Paul Hartigan, 66th Force Support Squadron Community Support flight chief, "and our bowling league patrons can be assured that we will still offer league play again in the fall."

Over the next year, the concept of the bowling and fitness centers will evolve into a resiliency center. In the current diner space, plans for an activity room are taking shape. Options for how to use this space are currently being identified, but some ideas include a space for fitness circuit training for targeted groups such as pre-teens and women only. The four pillars of resiliency will also extend into other new programs such as cooking classes, healthy eating or work/life seminars.

The fitness and resiliency centers will focus on building resilience by integrating physical, mental, social and spiritual assets in a centrally located multi-purpose facility, according to 66th Force Support Squadron officials.

"We want the community's input on this," said Hartigan. "We have crafted a survey to get feedback from the base populace on how the future resiliency center space can be used."

Without the breakfast option offered at the 13th Frame Diner, other eating facilities on base are filling the void. Many have also included specials throughout June.

The Daily Bagel shop located in the 66th Medical Squadron clinic is open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Throughout June, patrons can purchase a bagel with cream cheese and a medium coffee for $3.75.

Dunkin Donuts, located in the Base Exchange mall, is open Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. On June 1, customers will receive a free donut with the purchase of any beverage.

Froots, also located in the Base Exchange mall, is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Throughout June, customers may purchase a breakfast wrap for $3.99 and receive a free choice of juice.
