The Coral Springs Civil Air Patrol will be celebrating their 30 year anniversary and are inviting past, present and future members to join them at Veterans Park.

On October 1, 2016, at 10:00 a.m. they will be unveiling a Memorial celebrating every single member who has volunteered their time with the squadron.

The Civil Air Patrol, the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, is a nonprofit organization with 60,000 members nationwide. This all-volunteer group of dedicated boys and girls ranging in age from 12 years old and up attend local schools like Stoneman Douglas, JP Taravella, Coral Glades and Coral Springs High. Any resident is welcome to join, even home-schooled students.

The squadron meets on Thursday evenings at the Coral Springs Charter School from 6 p.m to 9 p.m under Cadet First Lt. Santiago Ledesma. Students that enroll in the Civil Air Corps can earn up to 500 service hours. Some even earn up to 1,000.

Veterans Park is located at 8601 Royal Palm Blvd, Coral Springs, FL 33065.

    I was in CAP in corals Springs. During middle and high school. Loved every minute of it. Friends for life. So proud of everyone and I recommend that every teen takes part in CAP. I learned fist aid, camping, how to fly, and good citizenship.
