Lions Club Poker Tournament Support

Recently the Abbotsford Lions Club needed help setting up for their charity Poker Tournament. And who did they call? Well, the 861 Silverfox Air Cadets of course!
 
This past Saturday a group of cadets headed up to the Ag-Rec building to set up tables and chairs for this event. It was especially appreciated by the organizer, Ron, as he was in an accident the past February and is still pretty sore and not able to lift much.
In return, the Lions Club donates back some of the proceeds from these events to our Squadron- which we REALLY appreciate!
 
Thank you Lions Club for your support and allowing us yet another opportunity to give back to our community.

Spring Break Work Experience at 19 Wing Comox

Over the past few months we have been letting people know about the many different Spring Break Work Experience opportunities procured by the Air Cadet League in locations around the Province.

In March, our very own F/Sgt Cummings was one of 14 Cadets who was selected to attend this amazing opportunity.

The following articles were written for the Comox Totem (the base newsletter), describing the experience and we want to share it with you as well.
