Volunteers needed for Snowbirds Event on 11 September

On Wednesday, 11 September, the Canadian Armed Forces’ own 431 Air Demonstration Squadron (better known as The Snowbirds) will be doing a demonstration show. We’re looking for a few enthusiastic volunteers to help out with the information booth from 1400 hours (2:00pm) to 1800 hours (6:00pm). Yes, we know it’s a school day, so we’re not asking for many, but if you can make it, please sign up as soon as you can.

Sign-up sheets (remember that you need to be logged in to see them) are available here: Event Sign-Ups

For those who aren’t volunteering, but want to come to the show, further details will be posted in the next few days.

Decoration Day Parade Correction and Reminder

The original posting for this weekend’s Decoration Day Parade was mistakenly listed the date as being 15 Sep 18. The actual time and date is 1330h (1:30pm) to 1500h (3:00pm) on 16 Sep 18.

We currently have only one cadet signed up for this event and would like a reasonable presence. If you can free up a couple of hours on Sunday, sign up and come out to support your squadron and its primary sponsor

Here’s your opportunity to earn some of those precious high school volunteer hours and help our principal sponsor by helping to tidy up the branch after a long and, hopefully, finished winter.

I will be on-site manning the grill for the afternoon and can verify attendance. If you can come out for an hour or for the whole afternoon, every little bit of contribution is appreciated.
