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.

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.
