WALKER — For many years, the Civil Air Patrol squadron based at Walker Airport (Bresley Field) has hosted a fundraising breakfast.
The funds earned help pay for items not allotted to the group by its sponsor, the United States Air Force.
The group is postponing the breakfast until next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the news release, the squadron has gone through a number of changes through the years. Originally, it was the Walker Flying Club. The club donated their airplane to the
Air Force and became the Walker Squadron Civil Air Patrol. When members from Hubbard and Beltrami counties joined, the name was changed to the Tri-County Senior Squadron. Last year, the group acquired junior members from other squadrons and became the Tri-County Composite Squadron.
During the pandemic, squadrons have done such things as sponsor blood drives and delivered food to those in need.
The group is always looking for new members. For more information, contact Tri-County Composite Squadron Commander Dianne Harris on the group’s Facebook Tri-County Composite Squadron.
