A very successful promotion night was held at our meeting last week. We had several cadet promotions as well as a change of command ceremony. Our previous cadet commander of two years, Lieutenant Colonel Abigail DeBow passed the roll over to our new cadet commander Second Lieutenant James Kelley. We want to wish them both the best in their upcoming rolls. Cadet Andrew Pincince was promoted to Second Lieutenant and received the Billy Mitchel award. Only about 15% of civil air patrol cadets reach this point in the program. Cadets Kelley and Turner received their Wright Brothers awards for their recent promotions. This award is earned after completing phase one of the cadet program. Cadet Folger was promoted to Senior Master Sergeant, Cadet Thompson was promoted to Senior Airman and Cadet Keeney was promoted to Airmen First Class. Congratulations to all for your hard work!
Also a big thank you to everyone who came out to help us honor our cadets and their hard work!!

On January 30th, 2020, the cadets had a very simple meeting. The meeting began with opening formation and inspection. After the inspection the cadets watched a leadership movie called McFarland, USA. While watching the movie, cadets took notes on the leadership skills they spotted during the movie while eating some tasty snacks. The night ended with a clean up and everyone was free to go home.
