Community Services
C ommunity Services was established to meet the needs of the community in 1970, it originally concentrated on travel for the service person and family care with a small pay-as-you-use babysitting service. Expansion was inevitable and soon all non-military clubs and activities, family services, daycare center, youth programs and sports, kindercare, emergency homemakers, moms and tots, before and after school programs etc., were operating under the auspices of Community Services. Travel became big business with CFB Baden NPF purchasing two 48 passenger Mercedes tour busses and opening a fully reactive travel office. The responsibilities for administration of the Base Library and the Community Services Audio/ Video clubs rounded out the organization. To facilitate all or most of these activities, the rambling Kanadischehalle community center was built in 1985 at a cost of 8K Deutsch Marks.
