Fruit Cove Cadet Squadron recently conducted another one of its popular open houses at their home base at Fruit Cove Baptist Church in Julington Creek, FL.
Guests were shown stations that were manned by cadets that helped to tell the story of the Civil Air Patrol program. In addition, squadron parents provided a variety of refreshments that added a warm welcome to the visitors.
The program was organized by Squadron Recruitment and Retention Officer, 1st Lt James Kersten who also addressed those present with some brief remarks.
“Our open house is a great recruiting opportunity for us,” said Squadron Commander Capt. Al Uy. “We have two each year and our public affairs team manages to get the word out to the community. In addition, our cadets bring their friends and classmates.”
This event was the biggest open house for the one of the youngest squadrons in FLWG. “I was just overwhelmed,” explained Capt. Uy “Because we got ten parents to sign our visitor information list.”
Fruit Cove Cadet Squadron’s successful open house makes it one of the fastest growing squadrons in Florida Wing.
