Lonely, Homesick, or Bored?

Tired of eating galley food all the time?

Always stuck on the ship or base with nothing to do?

Is hanging out at the mall by yourself getting old?

Come join our extended "family" for...

star bursts

Yvonne and I live in Virginia Beach, Virginia and open our home every weekend to military men and women stationed here. We try to help allieviate feelings of isolation, loneliness, boredom, and homesickness by providing a safe, comfortable, home and family environment where you can get away from your ship or base and back into a real home for a few hours each week.

Saturday afternoon we get together from 5:00 to 9:00 pm. We eat, play board games, and just have fun together. Sometimes we go bowling and if the weather allows we go miniature golfing. Sunday afternoon we get together from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Yvonne cooks a big family style dinner with meat and potatoes and vegetables, home made bread, and great desserts! Sometimes we watch movies together, and periodically during the year we attend special events activities like the Yorktown Civil War Reenactment, Historic Williamsburg, and the Ringling Brothers Circus.

If you are stationed here, or about to be transferred here, check out the things we do; and if you like what you see and want to participate in our activities, contact us by clicking here and sending us an email to let us know, and come join our "extended family." There's no charge for our activities or food.

Our military ministry is an outreach of Azalea Garden Church. We would love to have you join us for our church services on Sunday morning. But you are welcome to participate in our activities at the house regardless of your church affiliation, or even if you have no church affiliation.

We will gladly provide transportation to and from your military base if you need it.
