Come celebrate!

Come celebrate the first-year anniversary of The Pepper Pod on September 10, 2022 at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. We have grown exponentially, and now it’s time to celebrate our hard work!

“The Pepper Pod was created in a forest because we can learn a lot from trees on how to support and lean on each other during the storms of our lives.”
 - Sandra Perron

Join us for an elegant fall evening, featuring culinary delights, lovely music, and an enchanting decor transporting you into our magical adventure. Share a cocktail and scintillating dinner conversation with Canadian leaders, military officials and your Pepper Pod friends. Come be a part of our forest…

Message from the Pepper Pod Founder

Dear Friend,

The Pepper Pod is ours. Not mine, ours. Come help me grow this beautiful place where women from the veteran community can support one another, and be a force of change for the next generation of women in the military. Will you be a part of this forest?

I have added to my tribe. I am able to see more possibilities. My cup is full of love as I leave here. This weekend granted me the gift of simply being present, being me. Filled with gratitude...thank you. – S
