Month of the Military Child – April 2022

Since the mid-1980s the month of April has been set aside as Month of the Military Child (MOMC), recognizing the children of military members.  This year SCMFO participated in the celebration which took place at one of the clubhouses on base at Camp Pendleton.  There were 43 families and nearly 80 children having a BLAST in a range of activities including lots of crafts (face painting and art activities) treats (pizza for everyone) and the raffling of some terrific prizes!
