News From CPC
Hello CPC families!
Happy New Year! The time flew by for us during the holidays and we are hopeful you enjoyed the time with your cadet(s).
It was great to see many of you at the Colorado All Service Academy Ball held on December 29th at the Broadmoor. Be sure to check out the photos. If you did not make it this year, we highly recommend attending next year.
The Valentines Goodie Bag Assembly is in just a few short weeks. Please join us for fellowship and fun as we assemble the treats for the cadets on February 12, 2023, at the Cadet Field House. Check out the link for volunteering.
This year has just flown by and It is hard to believe that the firsties will be graduating in just a few quick months! We look forward to learning where the Class of 2023 cadets will be headed for their first assignments. We wish them the best to finish well in this semester!
We will be resuming our End of the Year Celebration this year for the first time since before Covid! We would love you to join us as we celebrate these cadets. It will be April 29, 2023, for lunch from 12 to 2:30 pm.
An invitation will be forthcoming! The seniors will be presented with their gift from CPC.
Speaking of graduation, that momentous day also marks the beginning of our new CPC board year. We will have many positions to fill at our Spring General Membership meeting on Saturday, April 29, 2023 from 2:30 to 4:30 pm. It will be just after our End of Year Celebration!

We have many families that will be stepping down this year since their cadets will be graduating. Thanks to all of them for the help over the years. Thank you for the consideration in filling their roles. These next four months will allow you to participate in a background role as you learn the ins and outs of that position.
