Members of the Mount Airy Composite Squadron supported their community during two town events last month.
Cadets and senior members of the squadron honored the nation’s veterans on Memorial Day by placing American flags on the graves of those who served in the military buried at Taylorsville United Methodist Church. The group placed about 25 flags.
The Mount Airy Squadron Cadets have performed this service for 13 years.
In addition, the Mount Airy Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol, U.S. Air Force Auxiliary supported the annual May Festival May 19 and 20. The Mount Airy Lions club sponsors this two-day festival each year on Main Street in historic downtown Mount Airy.
Civil Air Patrol cadets and adult members closed the roads to all traffic to allow over 90 vendors to set up their booths. More than 8,000 people attended the festival.
