This is a very important fundraiser.  Everybody’s help is appreciated.  You have a business or know someone who does?  You are interested in making a donation to support the Squadron?  Please contact us!

All items will be for sale at the Annual Inspection in June.

Become a volunteer

To be able to fulfill our mission, we need parents to be involved in the Squadron activities.  


In order to become a  volunteer, you need to go through a Volunteer Screening process.  Don’t worry, it is very simple.  

First, all volunteers need to get a police record check.  In order to get one without fees, contact us to get a letter from the CO requesting a police check.  Then, fill this form.  Once completed, bring your form and your police record check to the squadron.  Once we receive it, a member of the sponsoring committee will contact you for a brief interview on the phone.  Then you will be able to participate in the activities of the Squadron.


We are a non profit organization and we rely on fundraisers and donation in order to complete our training.
