BOTTLE DRIVE FUNDRAISING (JAN 18 & 25)

The Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC) is organizing a bottle drive to be held in the New Year. Over the Holidays, round up those refundable bottles and cans from families and friends. On Jan. 18, or Jan. 25, 2018, bag them up and bring them down to the Hangar.  Members from the SSC will be onsite collecting empties from 18:15 to 19:00 both days.

...Alternatively, you may also choose to return empty bottles for refund and subsequently bring in the money to donate to the Squadron.

Note that all fundraising proceeds go directly to fund 742 activities.  Thanks for your support!


Canada Fitness Assessment

Did you know that annual participation in the Canada Fitness Assessment is required for all promotions after LAC? The next opportunity to complete the CFA will be on January 18, 2018. If you did not participate on Oct 5, please make sure you are present on Jan 18. If you did participate last time you should still attend as it is a mandatory training night, and you will have the opportunity to increase your fitness level!
*Seniors: Note that helping to run a station does not count, as you must actually participate in the assessment. Please find the time to go through the stations.
