140 Aurora Squadron has officially Stood down for the summer.
Cadets who have been selected for summer training will be sent their travel itineraries directly once we have received them. Please make sure CI Waller has your e-mail address by contacting her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cadets who are on standby -- please remain ready to go. If you are no longer available, please contact CI Waller.
Joining Instructions and other information are available on our Google drive.
Cadets cannot access our Google drive if they have recently used their school e-mail. It is not a problem on our end -- the school board won't allow it, presumably for security reasons.
Access is open to anyone with the link.
Do NOT request access on the form. Before accessing our Google drive, cadets must clear their device's cache or use a private browser.
Weekly Routine Orders will continue in September.
The Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC) is responsible for fundraising for the operations of the Squadron.
The warmer weather is almost here and that means it’s time to dust off those grills! (when it decides to stop raining). It’s BAR-B-Q season and the perfect time to kick off our last fundraising campaign!
In an effort to raise funds for the 140 Air Cadet Squadron, we will be participating in the North Country Meats “Centre-of-the-Plate” fundraising program.
Instead of trekking across town to the butcher shop or standing in line at the crowded local grocery store, suggest to all your friends, family and neighbors that they rely on you for all of their BAR-B-Q favorites! We’ll be supplying the same delicious products that are served today by major hotels, restaurants and many food service industries throughout Canada!
Here is the link to find all you need to get started:
· Customer Order Form - where you can list all your orders by person ordering
· Sellers Order Form - a summary of your total order
· Product Information
Please contact Carmen Simpson at email@example.com or 647-230-3546 for details about submitting your order no later than Sunday June 16th. Our orders will be ready for pick up on Thursday June 20th at 7:30 pm in the parking lot of Cardinal Carter Catholic High School.
The North Country Meats Centre-of-the-Plate program provides generous margins for its fundraising partners. Given the time of the year and the nature of this fundraising campaign, our efforts will surely be rewarded. However, with that said, here are some simple rules to live by:
• Strike now while the iron is hot! We only have 2 weeks of selling!
• Leave no stone unturned!
• Be prepared to go the whole nine yards!
• We’ve all got to give 110%
Tag Days are the Squadron's main fundraiser. Cadets sell tags in front of local Aurora businesses. Cadets must sign up for at least 3 (three) shifts. Parents are asked to assist by volunteering to drive the cadets to their posts.
Lottery ticket sales are a big portion of fundraising for the Squadron. Each cadet must sell at least one book of 12 tickets for $60. Books must be paid for in advance and can be obtained from any SSC member. Lottery ticket stubs must be returned once the tickets are sold. Enjoy Gliding? Proceeds from those tickets go to maintain the tow plane and glider fleet.
A $70 assessment fee must be paid on enrollment and annually.
Other fundraising activities may be conducted during the year. Please participate wherever you can. Our Squadron's financial health depends on it.
