Michigan has two USAFA Parents Clubs -- Like several other states with large populations or geographic regions, Michigan has two USAFA Parents Clubs to serve you. The Eastern Club is based in the Detroit and the Western Club is based in Grand Rapids. We work well together and share information, so please contact whichever club is closest to you.

We will be hosting the 2nd Annual “Boxing Party” for USAFA Michigan Families to create Michigan product care packages, sending your cadets some of their favorite goodies. The party is scheduled at my house (50437 Telluride Circle, Canton, MI 48187) on Sunday, January 31st from 1-4 pm. There are several ways for you to participate.
1. Attend the party in person, bring your items with you, and help assemble the boxes for our cadets.
2. Drop off your goodies at my house any time before the party and we will box them up for you.
3. Send a monetary donation ($25 or more) early enough for us to purchase items. If you choose this option, please ensure delivery prior to January 25th so we have time to purchase some Michigan products.
BONUS: For all current USAFA Parents' Club cadet families that participate, you will receive one entry into our drawing for an Unrestricted Round-Trip ticket on Southwest Airlines. Travel must be completed by November 28, 2021. We will draw the winning family near the conclusion of the “Boxing Party” and post the name of the winner shortly thereafter. Good luck to you all!
I’ll need your RSVP and the product you will be bringing (or delivering) by Monday, January 25th. Below is a list of Michigan items we have used in the past. Please REPLY to ALL so we know what you are planning on bringing and avoid getting duplicates.
What Should You Bring? Each box is only 8”x8”x4” because I have to pack all 20 of them into 2 large suitcases, so make sure you bring a small item to place in each box. Each family should bring enough to put into 20 boxes. The item you bring can be something exclusive to Michigan or just something your cadet really likes (and others may like as well).
Please NO LIQUIDS.
Additionally, you can bring a note/card for your cadet and put it into their box if you wish.
Remember, email REPLY TO ALL to email@example.com
your intentions and the items you plan to provide.
I hope to see many of you on Sunday, January 31st.

Meet present Cadets (if they are still in Michigan), talk to present and past parents about their experiences, and enjoy a Michigan afternoon in the sun (we hope). Our picnic will be hosted by Club President Jim Putlock at his home in Canton. More details soon.
