For the last several years, Pacific Women’s Day has been held in the spring but this year the MFRC is changing things up! This year’s event will take place on Saturday November 25th at Royal Roads University.
With Christmas just around the corner the day, the event will include a special Christmas marketplace featuring businesses owned by military members and friends of the Defence Community. In one workshop, Royal Roads University’s Head Gardener Barrie Agar will help participants create a spectacular seasonal arrangement. Look for more of what you love as well as new workshops to help stimulate the mind and soothe the spirit!
Pacific Women’s Day will also celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary and the significant contribution that women in the Defence Community have made over the years. This year, the MFRC received a grant from Victoria Foundation to hold a special Canada 150th version of the event. You can expect exciting new workshops, more of the workshops that people love and a special theme celebrating the long and significant history of women in the Defence Community in Canada.
Registration for the event will open in September. We are now accepting applications for workshops and the marketplace.
