340 Griffin Squadron - Port Elgin

About Us - Sponsoring Committee

A basic requirement in the operation of an Air Cadet squadron is financial support. The Canadian Forces provides some personnel, equipment and financial support to Cadet units. The remaining requirements must be met by local sponsorship. Local sponsorhip is coordinated by the Air Cadet League of Canada in the form of a Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC).

Cadets and parents are encouraged to participate in fundraising on behalf of the local sponsor and League to cover those costs not covered by the Canadian Forces. Additionally, the Sponsor Us - Become a Sponsor page describes how people can financially support the Squadron.

The official sponsor of 340 Squadron is Royal Canadian Legion Branch 340. The Squadron is fortunate to have an active Sponsoring Committee, which is comprised of the parents of cadets, Legion Members and other community minded adults.

If you are interested in donating time, money or other support to 340 Sqn, please contact us.

Chair - Jay Harris
Treasurer - Kristen LaRussa
