Everyone's invited out to help in this years Crookston Annual Night To Unite. Civil Air Patrol will have a booth again this year for Recruiting, DDR, Public Affairs and color guard. We will be needed to help with traffic control. This is a big need for this event. We help raise the colors for opening ceremonies. We do a line search for FOD in the area the helicopter for Homeland Security will be arriving. We man the Dunk tank, help with the security for safety around the golf ball drop, and help if anyone is in need. The following times are: 0800 Arrive at park 0900 set up tables for the Crookston PD When done with setup do line search for FOD Lunch is provided 1300hrs. Set up CAP Booth 1500hrs. Start Traffic Control and man booths. 1900hrs. Help secure hill for arrival of Helicopter. We help secure at the bottom of the hill so no one rushes up to the helicopter until the pilot gets out and says it's ok. Before the helicopter takes off we secure the hill again to keep people away. 2000hrs. the event is over. CAP helps tear down the tables and clean up. We usually get done by 2200hrs. Again we would love any unit to come out and help with this event and hand out any recruiting information for your units.
