These MFRC programs are open to everyone in our military community – members and veterans, their partners and family members as well as our DND civilian staff.
Programs for Adults
These are open to all adults in our military community
All programs are free unless otherwise indicated. Each program will indicate how to register for it.
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.
Our theme for this month's Positive Program is "MayBee.” We will be focusing on two things—the definition of 'maybe' and things associated with bees. By doing a few little things this month, we will Bee-Kind, Bee-Positive, and Bee-you! Zoom kick-off via Zoom is on April 30, 2000 - 2100. Register by April 26 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost: $5.
