From the Co-Presidents

Hello CPC families!


It is unbelievable to us that November is already here! We are so thankful for all of you and all of the amazing CPC volunteers! We have enjoyed making new friendships and working side by side with you many of you on behalf of our Colorado cadets.


Our Goodie Bag Assembly on October 29th was a great time of service and fellowship. Thank you so much to everyone that served to assemble and deliver over 1,600 goodie bags to each squadron. Lauralee Hitzler, Sherri Newell, Adrienne Baumert, Helly Duncan and the rest of the Goodie Bag team are AMAZING! Also, Vista Ridge JROTC was a tremendous help.

Please do not miss out on the fun and join us in February for our next assembly day!


Thanks to all who joined us for our semi-annual General Membership Meeting on October

7th . Our next planned meeting will be scheduled in April 2024. This meeting is for all of our members. It is a great time to come together and support each other!


We hope you are able to enjoy your upcoming family time and we wish you a very Happy



- Danny & Kathy Cometto
