2016 Merit Marks

All volunteers who contribute 20 or more hours to CPS-ECP receive an annual Merit Mark. On achieving 20 Merit Marks, volunteers are awarded a life membership and are no longer required to pay dues. Special recognition pins are given for 5 year, 10 year, 15 year, 20 year, 25 year and beyond. Each level of recognition is accompanied by a letter from the Chief Commander. Those receiving their Life Membership received a framed copy of their Merit Mark Certificate, a letter from the Chief Commander, a gold trimmed CPS-ECP quilted flag, a 25 year pin, and a gold membership card.

The following photos show those who received Merit Marks, which were presented by District Commander Graham Stewart and Squadron Commander Leigh Mellow
