At the Door County Cherryland Airport the Civil Air Patrol Cadet Program is teaching local youths about science, technology, and responsibility. The Civil Air Patrol is a non-combat unit of the US Air Force that focuses primarily on search and rescue. The local patrol meets Saturdays and trains cadets whose ages range from 12 to 21. At this past Saturday's meeting they were building model airplanes. First Lt. Louis Merck, Deputy Commander for Cadets, says anyone is welcome to come to their meetings and see what they're all about.
Beginning in April the Cadet Program will be meeting the first and third Saturdays of every month at the Cherryland Airport from 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM.
