Holiday Cookies & Decorations

3pm to 5pm

Deployment Holiday Party! November 30, 2019

Let’s get together and celebrate the Holidays!  

Your MFRC will be hosting a gathering at the Orleans Legion, where you and other military families will have the opportunity to chat, mingle, play games, and best of all, exchange Holiday cookies! That’s right, we’ll be doing a cookie exchange! Families are invited to bake cookies and bring them with their recipe for the cookie exchange. We also invite you to forward your recipe and a picture of the cookie, which will be included in a mini holiday recipe book! 

This event is intended for military families experiencing separation & reunion due to military tasking (which may include extended courses, IR, deployments, or those whose unit tempo require members to go through frequent interval separations). 

Please note that activities will be provided for all ages. Light refreshments will be served.  

Free event. For more information about the cookie exchange or to register, please contact us at 613-998-4884 by November 15, 2019. We want to ensure families have at least 2 weeks to prepare for the cookie exchange, whether they're homemade or bought. 

After the Holiday celebrations at the Legion, families are invited to make their way to the Orleans Santa’s Parade of lights on St-Joseph Blvd! It begins at 6pm - starts at Youville Dr and ends at Preston Dr.
