2/25/2012 - AVIANO AIR BASE, Italy -- The Airman and Family Readiness Center is now offering a new program in Right Start called "Spouses' Hour" that gives incoming spouses a dedicated time to network with other spouses and address specific spouse issues and questions. .

"This is a time for spouses to meet other new spouses and a Key Spouse mentor, as well as answer any questions they may have," said April Trinkle, AFRC Right Start coordinator. "It is an informal setting that goes in the direction the spouses want it to go, whether they have questions about pets, employment or the towns they live in. We answer the questions the active duty spouse might not be asking in Right Start."

Spouses' Hour is offered at 10 a.m. every Monday at the AFRC and is specifically tailored to ensure that spouses receive all the information needed while stationed at Aviano. Spouses are welcome to bring their children to Spouses' Hour if they are unable to obtain childcare

"My number one priority for newcomers is to ensure they feel welcomed at Aviano," said Brig. Gen. Scott Zobrist, 31st Fighter Wing commander. "Spouses' Hour now gives spouses the opportunity to get critical information while meeting with other spouses who are established at the base and can help them work around any roadblocks they come across."

For spouses who would like to attend the full Right Start program, dedicated child care slots are available at the Area F Child Development Center. For more information, visit http://www.aviano.af.mil/news/story.asp?id=123285235.
