Getting to Know Your New Community: Randolph AFB


posted Aug 31, 2011

The annual Rambler 120 Team Challenge is a great family day out, whether you are participating or spectating. Consisting of a 22-mile bike ride, a 6-mile run, a 2-mile rafting trip plus a "mystery event", it is perfect for competitive types and a good way to get to know other families from Randolph AFB housing. 

If you prefer something a little more relaxing that gives you an hour or two away from the kids, why not join an adult craft class? Randolph Arts and Crafts Center has a range of classes to choose from, including framing, drawing, quilting and floral design. This is a great way to meet like-minded locals.

One of the highlights for Randolph families takes place every summer - the Youth Programs End of Summer Bash. A huge selection of family-friendly games and activities, including face painting, arts and crafts, relay races and bouncy castles, make this a fun-filled day. If you have just relocated to Randolph AFB housing, this is a fantastic opportunity to get to know other families, and your kids will love it too.

Later in the year comes the Oktoberfest celebration, when German beer and food is in abundance, and live music and children's activities combine for a great evening out for all ages. Many events are scheduled in the buildup to Oktoberfest, with special offers on food, drink and leisure.

Lots more events take place at the Randolph library, bowling center and golf course throughout the year. Try to get involved in as many as you can, to help your family get to know their neighbors and make new friends. Military relocation need not be difficult if you embrace your new community and keep busy with plenty of fun-packed social events.  Let Housing 1 Source help you connect with your community.
