Please bare with us during our Website Construction

As you can tell, our website is currently under construction! We recently had to transfer web hosting providers in order to rectify some of the issues which have been plaguing the website since the beginning of the year, so we unfortunately now have to take a bit of time to put everything back together.

Hopefully it won't take us too long, though! Thank you for bearing with us while we complete this work.  Some information that may NOT be accurate.  If you have questions please email us.

If you have specific questions or cannot find something that was previously on the website, please contact us thru our Facebook page (link at the top of the page)  or email us at 533RCACS@gmail.com.  Or call Capt T. Barr at 780-686-9293

FUNDRAISERS

Spring 2021 Modified Bottle Drive

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we have modified our semi-annual bottle drive to maintain proper social distancing procedures.

We are looking for volunteers on Saturday May 8, 2021 to drive around the Grandin and Heritage Lakes area and collect bags of refundables which will be left at curbside for us. These will need to be dropped off at the Riel Bottle Refund Depot where the employees will sort the items and credit us for this very important fundraiser.

Volunteer drivers will meet Mr. Carignan at the St. Albert Community Hall at 10 am to receive their map and instructions. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Carignan at carignan@shaw.ca

Start times are 10:00 or 1:00. We need parents to drive up and down streets to grab bags of bottles/recyclables left out side.  

We are NOT asking cadets or parents to go up to the house or knock on doors.  

We ONLY need the bottles left outside pick up and dropped off at the Reil Bottle Depot - make sure to say they are for St. Albert Air Cadets. 

Please note that this is not a cadet activity and is an adult volunteer opportunity. You can bring helpers at your discretion and responsibility.

Date: May 8, 2021 (Sat.)

Time: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm MDT

Location: St. Albert Community Hall – 17 Perron St. St. Albert
