MFPU Spooktacular/Autumn Bash

17 Oct


The MFPU Family invites you to our Children’s Autumn Bash and Trunk-N-Treat.

Festivities will begin with Trunk-N-Treating in the parking lot at 4:45pm then head towards the training room for games and feast from 5:00 to 6:00pm.

For anyone planning on decorating their trunk, be in the paved parking lot no later than 4:00pm. The gates will be closed promptly at 4 to ensure the safety of our ghosts and goblins. Any vehicles not wishing to participate in the Trunk-N-Treat must park in the lower lot.

Directions to the building:

From Trident Gate, take left at second light (scorpion road)
Go through 2 stop signs, second one being at a set of rail road tracks.
Take the next right (guardfish road)
The parking lot is the dirt lot on the right after rounding the corner (second entrance, first is not MFPU)

From Trigger Gate, take first right (towards East Housing)
Take left onto Guardfish Road (there is a blue TTF/MFPU sign on the right. If you made it to the stop sign at the tracks, you went too far)
The parking lot is the dirt lot on the right after rounding the corner (second entrance, first is not MFPU)

Please remember RSVP is very important for this event so the number of children and vehicles attending will be accounted for.

Fall is here!

2 Nov

The Fall weather is officially upon us and we are celebrating it in true Pacific Northwest style … in raincoats. But thankfully the weather showed mercy and kept the rain at bay during our Pumpkin Carving Party at the admiral’s house.

D13 Admiral Taylor and Mrs. Taylor graciously opened their beautiful home and property to the district families for a festive pumpkin carving party. Of course bring-your-own-pumpkin bylaws were in effect but some awesome treats, grilled hot dogs, and warm apple cider and hot chocolate were provided for those who attended. It was a fun day!

We had a great turn out and several of our families were able to meet each other in person and introduce their children. We must say, the pumpkin carving talent in the Coast Guard is definitely apparent. There were some really creative final products.

We sincerely thank the Taylors for welcoming us and offering the opportunity to get to know them better. A sense of community is very important to the military lifestyle and our goal at the CGFA is to build on the connections we make through our CGFA planned events and beyond. We want to thank Mrs. Taylor for aiding us in our mission.

We hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! Stay tuned for updates on future events!
