The U.S. Army Garrison Stuttgart Organization Day was held Sept. 4 on the parade field of Panzer Kaserne. The garrison workforce shared a fun-filled day of team-building games, contests and entertainment. The morning kicked off with a Zumba training class and activities such as bubble soccer and volleyball throughout the day, ending with the annual tug-o-war between garrison directorates.
For lunch, with the help of The Army & Air Force Exchange Service, Culligan, Red Cross, and the United Service Organizations volunteer team of grill masters, the chili cook-off and desert contests were big hits. DJ Ripper kept the party alive with popular music and the Stuttgarter Saloniker orchestra band entertained the crowd in the afternoon with instrumental jazz and swing songs of the decades. Employees also shared their singing talents with the parade field audience.
Org. Day winners included: Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation for Kickball; Directorate of Public Works for Volleyball; Directorate of Human Resources won first place in tug-o-war followed by Headquarters and Headquarters Company along with Directorate of Plans, Training, Mobilization and Security in second, and Directorate of Emergency Services in third; Mike Warren for the chili cook-off and Anna Tram for the dessert contest. Director, Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation took home the trophy with the overall win for the day.
All in all, the event was a success and a great day for the hard working garrison staff.
