893 Beaufort Squadron air cadets find new home

It has been 30 years that the air cadets have been wandering in the wilderness.

It has been 30 years that the 893 Beaufort Squadron air cadets have been wandering in the wilderness, but now they are finally about to move into a home of their own.

That’s cause for celebration, says Leslie Frechette, and she’s hoping Oceanside residents will help the cadets do just that at a special murder mystery benefit dinner and auction on May 12.

The event, entitled, A Dream Takes Flight, is being held at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre to mark the move from a series of school gymnasiums to a state of the art hangar at the Qualicum Beach municipal airport.

Frechette, who sits on the sponsoring committee for the cadets, said attendees will get a major bang for their entertainment dollar.

“There’s a murder mystery called The Scent(s) of Doom, presented by Victoriamurdermysteries.com,” she said. “It’s a four-part skit where they circulate amongst the crowd, who has to guess who did it. There’s a buffet dinner, a cash bar, balloon-popping prizes, a 50/50 draw, a silent auction and a live auction with celebrity auctioneers.”

Those auctions should be a highlight, she said, noting there are currently over $7,000 worth of items. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Tickets for the event can be obtained at the Parksville or Bowser Legions, at Close to You in Parksville.
