What do I get for my money?
You join a group of people who share a love of country and a respect for Canada's proud military tradition.
A group with a willingness to help causes that are deemed to have merit.
A group very interested in helping young people, especially through the Air Cadet Program.
We are a licensed premise.
We present an active social calendar open to all members, family and friends.
We have active dart leagues, carpet bowling, bridge, cribbage, euchre, line dancing, shuffleboard and pool.
We observe National holidays that honour our veterans with parades and appropriate services.
Our many social activities include a wide variety of activities.
There is more to this story than we can put in this article, so please drop by and visit us.
All members of the Wing expect, and are entitled to, the privilege of enjoying club quarters and facilities in an atmosphere of good fellowship and dignity.
From time to time groups associated with the Wing, or other organizations renting part of the premises, are in our presence as guests of the Wing; that same harmonious environment prevails on these occasions.
It is therefore necessary that we set out, for the guidance of all, certain basic house rules establishing minimum acceptable standards of individual conduct, and identifying conditions of use for quarters and facilities. It is not the intention of these regulations to impose unnecessary restrictions upon the activities of members, rather it is intended to identify the principle that the privilege of membership places upon each individual an obligation to contribute to the well-being, dignity and prestige of the Wing by a high standard of personal conduct. While rules, as such, can never adequately take the place of self-restraint and self-discipline, the adoption and enforcement of the house rules guarantees that the right and privileges of the group will not be jeopardized by the undisciplined action of a minority.
