Virtual Meeting Information

ALCON (All Concerned),

By order of the National Commander, all face-to-face meetings have been suspended until May 13th and may be changed based on the ongoing situation pertaining to COVID-19. Also Gov Whitmer has ordered a shelter in place for all of Michigan, meaning we are not able to meet for our meetings in person.

Because of this fact, Lapeer Composite Squadron will be meeting virtually ever Thursday from 6:00pm to 8:30pm using Discord. Information can be found below.
