75th Anniversary Audio-Visual Yearbooks: These are available for $20 from the squadron office and include photos from the 2016-2017 training year, Freedom of the City, ACR 2017, 75th Reunion, historical photos from the past 75 years, and video interviews with former COs and current cadets.

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.
