The Fellowship has assisted with the CHAB radio-thon for several years and has made donations in support of various departments of the local hospital. In the past several days the Fellowship has also been involved with Family Day at 15 Wing and the WCWO golf tournament at Deer Ridge Golf Course.

Above, L-R: Lyle Johnson, Robb Nesbitt, Bert Olson and Phil Adkins, members of the Friends of the Forces Fellowship, were on hand early on the first day, Sept 8, 2022, to answer telephones in the radio-thon to help raise funds for the Moose Jaw Health Foundation.
