Remember When? Since their inception in 1941 the young Ponoka Air Cadet Squadron and their leaders were always a colourful and welcome sight on many occasions as well as avid volunteers throughout the community. Dressed in their sharp grey uniforms the large squad paraded through the local streets for countless special year-round events, including inspections, Remembrance Day, and other celebrations. In this 1950s photo taken along 50th Street the members of the 65 squadron marches past the Ponoka town band, which was directed by Jack Kerns and also had some Air Cadet members in its ranks. The grand and longstanding tradition of our Ponoka Air Cadet 65 Squadron still proudly carries on to this day. Photo courtesy of the Fort Ostell Museum
