This weekend, members of the Massachusetts Wing of the Civil Air Patrol are in town for their annual conference, with approximately 250 members taking part.
They gathered this morning at the Sheraton in Downtown Springfield for their general assembly and awards presentation.
The theme for this year's event is "personal fulfillment through volunteer service."
The Civil Air Patrol was founded 73 years ago, assisting the United States as it got involved in World War II.
