“This is a dynamic group of women,” said Jalbert.

“We are making a $10,000 difference twice a year,” added Patterson-Eldon.

Cpt. Stromquist noted that training quipment, including a cold weather tent would be purchased with the funds as well as other equipment and recruitment tools such as hoodies, t-shirts and hats for cadets to help spread the word about the squadron.
