HILL AIR FORCE BASE — With a thick East Coast accent and the flair and timing of a seasoned comedian, Dr. Robert Wicks captivated his audience not only by making them laugh, but also by making them think.
Wicks, a clinical psychologist, acclaimed public speaker and writer who talks about the intersection of spirituality and psychology, was the featured speaker at Hill Air Force Base’s annual Prayer Breakfast on Wednesday.
On Feb. 20, the Enlisted Spouses’ Club held their annual social event for the Officer’s Spouses’ Club.
The groups take turns hosting, and this year’s event was hosted by the ESC at the Hill AFB Chapel Annex at 6:30 p.m.
Spouses enjoyed a barbeque dinner and a wide-array of desserts in a vintage, country-western themed room complete with burlap, wooden signs, and Mason jar candles.
A photo booth gave spouses the chance to take funny photos — props and costumes made these photo souvenirs extra colorful.

Dress code for the event is Uniform of the day for military and business attire for civilians. Military Participants should wear service dress.
