The Spouses’ Club of Fort Bragg, is made up of military spouses dedicated to the tradition of the Army, while moving towards its vision of tomorrow. Our members have proven to be modern day heroes because of the countless hours of dedicated service and devotion to the military families and community. Their legacy continues to live on in the spirit they foster.

The club is governed by a board of directors that includes an executive board and a general board. The executive board positions are elected positions voted on, each year, by the general membership at the April luncheon. These officers are installed at the May luncheon. The general board members are appointed by the club’s president. Our club is governed by our Constitution and Bylaws.
Our governing board meets once a month to plan and implement a number of activities for the general membership. Our membership enjoys activities such as an Annual Welcome in September, Yule Mart Craft fair in the Fall, and a Spring Fundraiser. Also, monthly luncheons bring our members together to enjoy a variety of programs and events.
Our members pay annual dues. These dues help to subsidize the club’s operating expenses. Each member receives a membership pin, a members’ only directory and a monthly e-newsletter called The Bits and Bragg.
Two major fundraisers are planned during the year: our Yule Mart Fall Craft Fair and our Spring Fundraiser. The proceeds from these events, as well as the sales from our Way N Means, are distributed to the community through welfare and scholarships. Scholarship applications are accepted annually by any ABS member or dependent child, and recipients of the monies raised are honored at an annual Scholarship reception at the end of the board year.
