EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. --
The Bayview Club is changing.
Over the next two months, Eglin’s waterfront club will transition from a club into the Bayview Events Center.
The evolution is due to building renovations in anticipation of the Bayview becoming the temporary home of Eglin’s Airman Leadership School. Their current building is being demolished along with an old dormitory to make room for a new dormitory. Construction is scheduled to begin on a new Enlisted Professional Development Center in FY 2020. ALS personnel will occupy part of the Bayview building while the Ballroom and Sand Dollar Lounge will fall under the Event Center concept.
Another big change is the 96th Force Support Squadron is in the process of contracting event caterers to facilitate food and beverage service for Bayview’s events. The new contracted caterers will replace the Bayview’s staff caterers. The new caterers will be available in June.
The final day for the Bayview catering staff is May 25. Beginning in June, all 96th FSS-supported events will be hosted at the Bayview Event Center or Legends Sports Grill.
The 96th FSS will also hire two event coordinators to help facilitate Bayview events and provide venue customer support.
