Fund Raising:
– Cadets were given Air Cadet League tickets to sell. All cadets are expected to sell at least one book. Books have 12 tickets. Tickets sell for $2 or 3 for $5. Cadets should return at least $20 for each book depending on how the tickets were told. Cadets must return any unsold tickets to the squadron by 1 Mar 17.

– Cadets were given order forms for tickets to a roast beef dinner. The dinner will take place at Mixer’s Sports Bar on February 18. Tickets are $20. Cadets are to bring in their order forms and money and we will be sending the tickets home with the cadets and will also keep a record of those who purchased tickets. The order form is found here: Roast Beef Dinner Order Form.

– The senior cadets will be holding a bottle drive on 25 Feb 17. Save up your refundables. If anyone has a truck as is willing to help the seniors with picking up bottles, let us know.

Reminder: If a cadet cannot make it to a Wednesday night/regular event, the cadet should leave a message on the squadron answering machine 632-3215. Please do not e-mail Capt Phinney or post on facebook. This will ensure the admin o gets the message and can mark the cadet as excused.
