Due to the ongoing pandemic, BFMS is not currently hosting any in-person events. We hope to be able to offer in-person events in the near future! To protect those most at risk of infection from Covid-19, we expect that vaccination and pre-registration will be required when we gather again in-person. Stay tuned for more information - we miss you!.
