SSC




The Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC) is responsible for fundraising for the operations of the Squadron.


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.  


Other fundraising activities may be conducted during the year.  Please participate wherever you can.  Our Squadron's financial health depends on it.
