PARENT VOLUNTEERS URGENTLY REQUIRED

We desperately require parents to volunteer on Tuesday evenings to operate the “Canteen” for your Cadets.  During their break, Cadets have the opportunity to purchase snacks and drinks but we require parent volunteers to operate this service every Tuesday evening.   Please contact Michelle Hollik at michellehollik@yahoo.ca for details.

 

BINGO – Also, please don’t forget to sign up as a volunteer for upcoming Bingo as these provide essential funds for our Squadron.  Remember, if you work 4 bingo’s in one year you will receive your ACR Ticket at no charge [approximately a $40 value]!  You can see what dates require more volunteers every Tuesday evening when you drop off and pick up your Cadet, or e-mail Michelle Hollik at michellehollik@yahoo.ca
