MWR, support squadron hosting travel fair Oct. 3-4
Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Guam and the 36th Force Support Squadron (FSS) are hosting the Ninth Annual Travel Fair in October.
The Travel Fair will be hosted from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Top O’ the Mar Oct. 3 and at the Sunrise Conference Center on Andersen Air Force Base Oct. 4. Admission is free.
According to MWR Guam Information, Tickets and Travel (ITT) Travel Agent Carly Macias, the purpose of the Travel Fair is to display travel opportunities military families have during their time on Guam.
“(The fair) will show them things to do locally and abroad,” she said. “It gives the military personnel a chance to speak with representatives from countries or islands, ask questions and understand more about that destination or place.”
Attendees should be prepared to leave with a variety of information, brochures and possibly prizes. During the fair, attendees will also have the chance to watch a number of videos and witness demonstrations.
Macias said she hopes attendees will gain more knowledge about what the ITT offices have to offer.
“While we know being on Guam makes most of our military families so far from home, this also means they are so close to other places,” she said. “Guam is in the Pacific (Ocean) and so close to Asia and Australia. I hope they will use that to try to travel and explore what is out there.”
