“We welcomed the entire community to learn more about our squadron, its proud history and accomplishments and the Civil Air Patrol,” Squadron Commander Maj. Dan Fisher said.
The Civil Air Patrol was established Dec. 1, 1941, and the Sandy Springs Cadet Squadron was chartered exactly 22 years later, Dec. 1, 1963. The open house was part of the anniversary observance designed to create a greater awareness of the unit’s presence and contributions in the community. The night’s activities included a special review of the squadron’s history and recent activities, and recognition of members from throughout its history. Cadets from the unit were present to greet visitors and explain patrol’s missions for America.
The squadron meets each Wednesday from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the church, 7171 Glenridge Drive.
