A Busy Summer for FCCS

June has already escaped us; with only six days left we will have found July already. Our Squadron has been busy with Parades, training, new Cadets, and Encampment.

11 June, Fox Cities along with Brown County Senior Squadron and Door County Composite Squadron marched in the Appleton Flag Day Parade.

It was hot, but we stood proud, looked great, and had an excellent time. Following the parade members were able to have some down time and enjoy a picnic in the park with games, great food, and even better company.

We have had a few Cadets participating in National Cadet Special Activities; National Flight Academy in Oshkosh, Model Aircraft & Remote Control Flight Academy also in Oshkosh, and this week Cadets are attending Wisconsin Wing Encampment. Cadets will take part in a week long training; learning leadership skills, drill and ceremony, and meeting new friends from all over the State!

Summer also brings High-School Graduations, which mean change within every Squadron. Last Tuesday, we had to bid farewell to Cadet Staff Sergeant Gossen as he prepares to leave for an appointment with the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY. Gossen has been with our Squadron for roughly two years and we will greatly miss his positive attitude. God Speed Gossen and we look forward to seeing you soon!
