Northshore Celebrates 50 Amazing Years

In October of 1967 the Bothell Squadron of Civil Air Patrol was formed. Sometime in the 1970’s this squadron changed its name to Northshore Squadron. Throughout the years the squadron has earned numerous awards for cadet programs and aerospace education. There have been several color guards who have won many wing level competitions and performed at sporting events and ceremonies. For the last six years in a row the squadron has earned the Quality Cadet Unit Award and Aerospace Excellence Award from CAP National Headquarters. The Northshore Squadron has been the home to many good members who have gone on to do outstanding things. Many of the cadets from this squadron have gone on to defend our nation, serving in all branches of the Armed Services.

On October 21, 2017 the squadron will host a 50th anniversary celebration at the Hooper Army Reserve Center in Bothell, WA. If you were a member of the Bothell or Northshore squadron please plan on stopping by sometime between 5 and 8pm. If you have old photos or memorabilia you would like to share, please bring them with you.
