Welcome to Carlisle Barracks. It is my pleasure to “hail” you into our community. As President of the Carlisle Barracks Spouses’ Club, I am happy to give you a little insight into the year’s activities and plans. I encourage you to consider joining CBSC and becoming involved in a great group of diverse, inclusive spouses.
This year’s opportunities for fun include:
CBSC’s “Super Sign Up” happens August 31st from 10-2. Come by the Letort View Community Center to meet the Board, find out why CBSC is awesome, join some sub-clubs, and check out over 25 local businesses! Food and drink provided!
Our first luncheon “Welcome to Wonderland” on September 21st will give you an opportunity to win some great prizes, meet great friends, and learn about our area.
Our October “date night” function is a fun and engaging night with local history expert Janeal Jarroh. Join us at the LVCC to learn about the “Whiskey Rebellion!”
And many more!
Visit our booth at the Community Fair on August 10th, starting at 0900. We will have membership forms and great information about the club and its membership opportunities. Again, welcome to Carlisle, Carlisle Barracks, and the Army War College Community. We are so very happy you are here.
Yours in Service,
Kerri C. Beckert
Committed to improving our community through fellowship, stewardship, and education.
Our membership opportunities are inclusive and diverse. We welcome spouses from all backgrounds and encourage community partnership.
This group meets monthly to explore interesting historical, cultural and regional points of interest. In the past, they have toured the Governor’s mansion, sipped vino at local wineries, attended flower shows and learned more about the Amish lifestyle.
We strive to publish a monthly digital newsletter to inform our members on current and upcoming activities and encourage participation. Look for the first 2016 newsletter later in the fall.
It takes commitment, talent and care to serve on the CBSC Board. Our current board still has open positions for the 2016-2017 board year. We need your skills and great attitude to make this year successful. If interested, contact our President, Kerri Beckert.
No matter your area of interest, the CBSC has something for everyone. Our monthly luncheons are a chance to make new friends and connect with area resources in a fun environment. We have numerous sub-clubs based on participation, leadership and interest. Don’t see something you want? You can always volunteer to start a group.
The CBSC conducts approved fundraisers throughout the year to support both education and community outreach by awarding annual scholarships to qualified military-connected students and grants to deserving community organizations. Applications for scholarships will open December 1 and outreach grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Our regular luncheons are generally on the third Wednesday of the month unless that conflicts with school breaks or holidays. We also have evening functions and activities which may vary from month-to-month. Our current event schedule can be found here.
