Bottle/Can Drive

Get ready to turn those leftover holiday bottles and cans into something amazing! 706 is thrilled to collect empty alcohol bottles, cans etc after the holidays. Bring them to 1 Brouillette on a cadet night not just to clear out clutter but also help raise funds for the squadron! Let's make recycling a blast while supporting our cadets!
