Peninsula’s Civil Air Patrol group resumes in-person meetings

Dungeness Composite Flight, the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Unit of the Olympic Peninsula, resumed in-person meetings this week after moving online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Regular meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays at the William R. Fairchild International Airport Meeting Room in the terminal, at 1402 Fairchild Airport Road, Port Angeles.

To provide information about the Civil Air Patrol mission and recruit new members, Dungeness Flight is hosting an open house at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 6, also at the Fairchild Airport meeting room. Presentations will be given on the different aspects of Civil Air Patrol and its missions, and how to join.

All are welcome, and light refreshments will be offered; masks are required because of Department of Transportation regulations.

For more information, visit the unit website at wa091.cap.gov.

Civil Air Patrol has two programs: the Cadet Program for members ages 12-18, and the Senior Member Program for members ages 18 and older.

While the unit was virtual, Dungeness Composite Flight received a new designation as a Flight, which is a local detachment of Peninsula Composite Squadron in Bremerton.

The unit also swore in a new unit commander in late April, Technical Flight Officer Madeline Patterson of Sequim, a former cadet of Dungeness Flight.

Civil Air Patrol is the civilian auxiliary of the United States Air Force, founded in 1941. CAP has three missions: cadet programs, emergency services and aerospace education. Get more information at gocivilairpatrol.com.

Right: Pieces of Civil War veteran Moore Waldron’s headstone can be seen in the right-hand corner of this photograph. Historical preservationist Mick Hersey, left, and the Taylor family of Gig Harbor returned the pieces to the Pioneer Memorial Park of Sequim for their friends the Englands (Moore’s descendants). The Englands read in the Sequim Gazette about the Sequim Garden Club’s preservation efforts at the park and decided to return these pieces for restoration. Moore now will have two markers in the park, as the Veteran’s Administration commissioned a new stone for Waldron in 2017 — an article about which can also be found on the Sequim Gazettte’s website. Moore moved to Sequim with his family in 1905 and died in 1908. Moore had five children and has descendants in Sequim and Pierce County as well as other places. Moore’s great-grandson is the founder of the Waldron Endoscopy Center in Tacoma, according to Cheryl England. Sequim Gazette photo by Emily Matthiessen
