November 20, 2019 581 Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron
Castlegar, BC – The Castlegar Air Cadets recently invited the public to join them for a movie night at the Castle Theatre on November 12, 2019. The movie of the night? “Top Gun”, a true 80s classic. A video showing off some of the amazing things Air Cadets do was shown to the audience prior to the screening.
The Air Cadets collected both cash and non-perishable food donations from patrons. Half the financial donations which they recently presented to the Community Harvest Food Bank on November 20.
“It was a much deserved fun night after all the training and effort they [Cadets] put in to preparing for and participating in Remembrance Day,” said Shelley Hastie who is part of the Squadron Sponsoring Committee. “We wanted to do a fun night that would also benefit the local community. We intend to do more events like this in the future.”
The Castlegar Air Cadets will also be hosting a “Paws for Claus” photo shoot event on November 30 with a portion of the proceeds going to support the local SPCA. For more information about Paws for Claus you can check out the Castlegar Air Cadets Facebook page.
The Castlegar Air Cadets have helped to serve the local community since 1952, when they first received their charter. They are proud to be strong community members and help support local causes.
The cadet program is open to all youth between the ages of 12-18 years old with a focus on leadership, citizenship and healthy living. Visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CastlegarCadets or our website at 581castlegaraircadets.ca for more information.
