Civil Air Patrol receives support from Franklin County

2 mins read

FARMINGTON – Good Times Unlimited and Sargent’s Mobile RV Repair Service, of Farmington, joined together in providing the Maine Civil Air Patrol (CAP) and Squadron 36 with a donation.

In May of 2007 the Maine Civil Air Patrol redesigned a FEMA trailer used during Hurricane Katrina to serve as their communications center for training and search and rescue missions. One phase of the project left incomplete, due to limited financial resources, was the addition of an awning. Good Times Unlimited provided a donation toward the purchase of an awning for the trailer and Sargent’s Mobile RV Repair Service volunteered the awning installation and other repair work needed. The Davis and Sargent families said they recognize the significance of the Civil Air Patrol in Maine and were pleased to offer their support.

The Poland Spring bottling plant located in Kingfield provided a generous donation of bottled water for use during training and search and rescue missions.

“CAP is a valuable resource for the state; we are fortunate to have such skilled and dedicated volunteers available to the citizens of Maine,” a private donor with ties to Franklin County said. “I am pleased to offer my financial support and encourage individuals and businesses throughout Franklin County and the state to do the same.”

Major Dale Fellows, commander of the Augusta squadron, noted that, “times are tough economically for individuals and businesses. For CAP to receive these donations from Franklin County was unexpected and most appreciated.”
