A newly signed memorandum of agreement between Patrick Air Force Base and Satellite Beach, Fla., will provide expanded opportunities for military and community youth to participate in recreational leagues and other programming.
Children in Satellite Beach will be able to participate in the school-age care and open recreation programs offered by the installation, said Pam Jordan, family services flight chief for the 45th Space Wing. Similarly, military dependents will have opportunities to participate in community sports leagues and instructional programming in Satellite Beach, reported Space Coast Daily.
Patrick AFB has been working jointly with the Space Coast Economic Development Commission and Satellite Beach community leaders to find creative ways to leverage existing capabilities and resources under the Air Force Community Partnership program. The effort has looked for ways to increase the use of underutilized facilities to improve the quality of life for military personnel and their families, and the base’s host community, according to the story.
