We are doing a fundraising patch that was designed by the Explorer Post and we are selling them for $ 10.00 to current Explorers. Your Explorers have seen the patch. WE will be offering them to the public and alumni for $ 15.00.

As discussed in the parents' meeting the cost for the Ride Academy is $ 100.00 and there is an application on the website that needs to be completed and turned in to Mrs. Smith as soon as possible. The academy is going to be different from years past as there are two recruit academies going at the same time. The time schedule will be below and we are hoping to have topic schedule out to you soon for each day. Parents, if you are available to help pick up food for lunch and/or dinner on any of these given days or taking pictures, we will be asking for help this next week to get a schedule started.

Day 1: 06/01/2022 @ FDC from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm Day 2: 06/04/2022 @ FDC from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm Day 3: 06/08/2022 @ FDC from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm Day 4: 06/11/2022 @ FDC from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm Day 5: 06/15/2022 @ FDC from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm Day 6: 06/18/2022 @ FDC from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm Day 7: 06/22/2022 @ FDC from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm - College Career Night for all parents to attend starting at 7:00 pm Day 8: 06/25/2022 @ FDC from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm - Family BBQ and Muster starting at 12:00 noon

Also with the Academy coming up, we have some gently used t-shirts and shorts available for purchase for $ 5.00 per set. These will come in handy during the ride academy. If you are interested please email me back with the sizes and I will have them ready and available for your Explorer on the first day of the Academy 06/01/2022.

Thank you for your continued support of your Explorer and Post 1894.
