New Items:

On Tuesday, 2 April 2019, we will be going to the Mooretown Sports Complex to swim.  We will meet at the squadron building for 18:30h and carpool to Mooretown.  Parents can pick up cadets at the usual time at the squadron building.  If you are a parent with a “higher occupancy vehicle” and are willing to drive, let us know through the closed group Facebook site.  We have a few drivers already but could likely use a couple more.


We will be conducting our second LHQ overnight activity 6, 7 April 2019.  Sign-up sheet, permission forms and kit lists are available at the squadron.  All are welcome to participate.

(Note:  there will not be a range practice on 6 April 2019 due to the LHQ activity)


Soups Up on Confederation St will be featuring the 44 Sarnia Imperial Air Cadets for their fundraiser “The Soup Loop”.  When guests order the Chicken Noodle Soup or the Healthy Choice Soup (Cauliflower and Basmati), Soup’s Up will donate $2 to our squadron.  Get your friends together and go for lunch!  If you purchase a $10.00 Fund-raising Gift card, they will donate an additional $2.  If you purchase a box of 12 Cinnaminis, they will donate another $2.  If you get all three, they will donate $6.
