Greetings TOSA Members,
It was a pleasure meeting so many of you at our Welcome Social last month. It was a lovely event and I hope you all enjoyed yourselves. I would like to especially thank Mrs. Christine Grady for opening up her lovely home, The Virginia House. TOSA greatly appreciates your hospitality!
November is going to be another exciting month for us as we host our next "red carpet" event, The Great-fall-ness Fair. 'Tis the season to be thankful and we are going to show you how much we appreciate your service as a military spouse in a big way! Be sure to keep up with our website and Facebook pages for all the details.
Finally, I would like to send a shout to Chelsey Ashinhurst, Meghan McDermott, and Pamela Brasher. These ladies have all accepted positions on the TOSA Executive Board. Thank you for volunteering your time and support!
I look forward to seeing everyone soon at our November events!

Your responses are much appreciated and will help us make the important decision on how and when we can safely move forward with Lunch Bunch gatherings.

Trips and Tours
Trips and Tours is currently on hold. The goal for Trips & Tours is to discover, experience & further educate ourselves on the neighborhood we live in & the areas around us. Whether you reside in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, or other areas of the Hampton Roads region there is history & new places to discover. The most wonderful benefit of this group is meeting people (old & new members). The opportunity presents itself for us to make new friends & catch up with “old” ones as we all share in the experience of discovery & education in our neighborhoods & outlying areas. If you are interested in joining the Trips & Tours social group, please send an email to Janet Peralta at email@example.com.
