These MFRC programs are open to everyone in our military community – members, spouses and civilian staff. All programs are free unless otherwise indicated. For programs presented on Zoom, you need a free Zoom account in order to participate on your computer. There is a phone-in option available as well. Video is not required nor is a computer as you can participate by phone, however it is a richer experience with video. For interactive programs on Facebook, you need a Facebook account to participate. As our Facebook page is public, you can view our events listings and postings without an account.
