The Ponoka Air Cadet squadron is shown here marching down 50th street past the Community Band in this 1960s photo. Our Air Cadet Squadron, which began in 1941, received sponsorship from the Royal Canadian Legion Branch in 1964 and for many decades have taken part and volunteered in countless local events that have included the annual Nov. 11 Remembrance Day parade, Vimy Night, Cross of Sacrifice, and many others . The Ponoka #65 Air Cadet Squadron is open to boys and girls age 12 to 18, meets every Tuesday evening, and information is available by calling 403-783-4181. Photo courtesy of the Fort Ostell Museum
