Overall Excellence Chapter Award



Up to Snow Good...MPI Ottawa’s Festive Event

December 2, 2021
5:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Head Office Ottawa
430 Hazeldean Road
Ottawa, Ontario

Do you have fond memories of hanging out and talking for hours in the rec room of your best friend's house? You know, the place with comfy chairs, cool memorabilia and tons of games! The Festive Event committee has found the 2021 version of that very cool rec room! Picture an energetic, healthy, and high vibing event space like no other place we have ever hosted an event. A space with tall ceilings and skylights makes it the right area to safely bring everyone together for our first in person event since the pandemic. Did we just say “in person?” YES WE DID!

Head Office is separated into areas allowing for people to naturally divide into distinct small networking or activity groups, ‘cause let’s face it, it has been a long time since we have seen each other and we need to network!

The committee has most certainly been “up to snow good” these past few months dreaming up ways to surprise and delight as we kick off the festive season! Come join our committee of Snow Gooders and celebrate reuniting and look forward to planning more in person gatherings.
