Ansbach Community Showcase—Welcome to Franconia!
Each year, as summer ends and the new school year is about to start, the Ansbach community comes together to explore the many local organizations, agencies and services at the annual community showcase.
The showcase allows new community members, as well as residents, to receive information from each organization, learn about new services, and receive updates for existing services, clubs and organizations.
This year the showcase takes place Saturday, Aug. 20, in and around the Katterbach Fitness Center, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This year’s theme is “Welcome to Franconia,” based on the region where Ansbach is located. Show off your Franconian (or Bavarian) attire as we celebrate living in this wonderful community.
The Katterbach Fitness Center provides ample space for the many different organizations of USAG Ansbach. Representatives from Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, Army Community Service, Auto Skills Center, Outdoor Recreation, Child & Youth Services, garrison agencies and private organizations, and many more will be on site.
