The Airman & Family Readiness Center hosted a scavenger hunt for Spangdahlem families Nov. 16.

The event, themed for the Month of the Military Family, challenged participants to find items like blue parking meters and a library card throughout the installation.

"The scavenger hunt is a fun way we want to thank our families for everything that they do," said Allisa Shepard, 52nd Force Support Squadron A&FRC community readiness specialist from New York City.

In addition to the hunt, the A&FRC sponsors many complementary events throughout the year for families of deployed Airmen.

"Military families sacrifice a lot in service of their country," Shepard said. "This is just one of the things we are offering."

Other events hosted this month include a chili cook-off judged by spouses of deployed service members, a rock garden display in the A&FRC representing each member of a family, and a photo contest showing military family members.
