Letters: Squadron depends on community

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the 746 Lightning Hawk Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron, we extend a sincere thank you to the community of Langley for its support. 

Last month, the Squadron held its “Tag Days” fundraising. Local businesses kindly permit cadets to obtain donations from patrons. These donations then fund the day to day activities of the Squadron. 

Langley citizens have been most generous, and we thank them for their contributions.

Our cadets actively contribute in their communities, are dedicated to being good Canadian citizens, and are developing strong leadership skills. Donations to the program are critical to its success.

On behalf of our more than 150 cadets, our officers, and our volunteer sponsoring committee, we extend our sincere appreciation to the community for its continued support. 

We are now in our 51st year and it would not be possible without the generosity of our community.

Judy Montano, 746 Squadron Sponsoring Committee
