   This Community Memories
Exhibit reflects the
tremendous pride and respect
the town of Carbonear,
Newfoundland has for its "589
Carbonear Air Cadet
Squadron."
   In the 1950ís, Carbonear
was a busy commercial town of
3,500 residents with close

ties to the sea and the
fishery, but few organized
opportunities for the youth
of the community. Then, in
the fall of 1954, the Royal
Canadian Air Cadets organized
a squadron for Carbonearís
teenage boys (girls were
included some 21 years
later).

   Since that time, the
Squadron has touched the
lives of thousands of young
men and women, preparing them
to be independent and
responsible citizens of their
community, province and
country. With the support of
the town council, the Royal
Canadian Legion and the

townís citizens, the Air
Cadets have become an
integral part of Carbonearís
social and cultural history.
   The 589 Carbonear Air
Cadet Squadron celebrated its
fiftieth anniversary in
August, 2004. This exhibit
celebrates an organization
that has had a major impact
