The "Friends of 533" Society

La société "Amis de 533"

The "Friends of 533" Society, a parent organization, is an extension of the Squadron Sponsoring Committee.  The primary objective of the Friends is to raise funds in support of the squadron's activities. Each year several members of the Friends are appointed by the sponsoring committee to serve on the Sponsoring Committee Executive, thereby ensuring that any concerns regarding the funds raised by the parents are considered and respected by the Committee.

These funds, raised through Bingos, Casinos, and other special projects, make a significant contribution to financing the local operational requirements of the squadron.  These include optional activities and trips, extra equipment, training supplies, administrative supplies, etc., which are in addition to the basic support provided by the Department of National Defense.

Other Important Upcoming Dates

The St. Albert Chamber of Commerce is needing volunteers to assist in the Snowflake Festival on Friday, November 22. Please see the sign-up provided to select an available volunteer position - don't forget to indicate you are with the Air Cadets when registering! Our ability to supply volunteers during Chamber of Commerce events such as Snowflake Festival and St. Albert Lifestyle Expo has provided many reciprocal benefits for the squadron, especially in terms of recruiting and community recognition. If you've got some time to spare this Friday, please consider volunteering at the Snowflake Festival!
