Capt. Brenda Carlstrom from the Red Wing Composite Civil Air Patrol Squadron sewed medical masks for the 934th Airlift Wing at the Minneapolis-St Paul Air Reserve Station. The masks are made out of surgical wrapping material and can be sterilized many times in a hospital autoclave machine. The opportunity was coordinated through Grace Church, Eden Prairie and Lt Col Colleen McArthur of the Civil Air Patrol. The masks will be flown to the MN Civil Air Patrol Headquarters in Inver Grove Heights to be picked up for distribution.
Before attending our meetings you need to pass the check in station. The class room is now set up for only 16 people, but we can always move the class room to the hanger. If the weather is nice we try to meet outside.
Our CAP hanger was sterilized on May 8, 2020 and the furniture moved to 6 ft apart. Thanks to the cleaning team of Capt Brenda Carlstrom, Major David Carlstrom, Major Robert Cole , Lt Jim Leverton, and Lt Mike McMurtery.
David Carlstrom and Donald Mikita took it upon themselves to volunteer for the Memorial Day Red Wing Field of Honor with three other community members. They pounded the stakes into the ground, displayed the 150 flags and after Memorial Day rolled the flags up.
