Dungeness Open House Great Success
On the 6th of July, Dungeness hosted its first Open House since its founding in 2014. With 38 people in attendance, including 10 prospective cadets, it was an overwhelming success.
The goal of the Open House was to teach members of the public more about Civil Air Patrol and also recruit new members to fill the ranks of the unit. The main presentation by TFO Madeline Patterson, the Commander, covered Civil Air Patrol history and missions, Dungeness Flight and its plans for the future, and the different membership options and the next steps for those interested. C/CMSgt Koda Robinson, the Cadet Recruiting NCO, talked about the Cadet Program and the amazing opportunities that cadets have within CAP.
Dungeness Flight was also excited to host Capt. John Weidman of Peninsula Composite Squadron, the parent Squadron of Dungeness, and their Cessna 182. Capt. Weidman spoke more about how pilots can get involved in CAP and the CAP Orientation Flight program.
