Beards Contest and Family Breakfast
As part of the 2018 Hivernades, the Bagotville MFRC team held its traditional beard growing competition, which for the past two years has evolved to be known as the beard and ponytail contest. In all, 246 soldiers ( 219 beards and 27 ponytails) entered the contest in order to win one of ten prizes totaling nearly $ 2,000. The contest, which is also a fundraising campaign, raised $ 6,100 to fund organized MFRC events. Carnival Family Breakfast The MFRC also held its yearly Carnival Family Breakfast on February 17th at the Base Community Center gym. About 200 people, including nearly 75 children of all ages participated in this event. Maple taffy on the snow, inflatable games, giant foosball, clowns, makeup artists, DIY and many other outdoor activities were offered to all. A new family contest including two small competitions were also a great success. The MFRC team thanks all the volunteers, sponsors and other partners who participated in these two activities and who support the Bagotville military community.
