The open house is part of the anniversary observance designed to create a greater awareness of CAP’s presence and contributions in the community, according to officials.
Members of the squadron will be present after Greenville Downtown Airport’s Fourth Annual Take Flight 5K Run to greet visitors and explain CAP’s three primary missions: Emergency services, cadet programs and aerospace education for youth and adults.
