Explorer Post 5 Kicks Off 49th Year with Open House, Applications Being Accepted Through Oct 25

Post 5 Open House

WRAL-TV’s Rick Armstrong talks to students at the Explorer Post 5 Open House on Thursday, October 18, 2018, in Cafe 550 at CBC’s Western Blvd headquarters.

It might have seemed a little crowded in Café 550 on Thursday night, October 18, 2018, as WRAL-TV hosted our Open House for the 49th year of Explorer Post 5. The station kicked off the night with a short ‘behind the scenes’ video shot and edited by our Post 5 members.

“Our Open House is an opportunity for the Explorer officers and advisors to share what the Post has been up to, what we have planned, and how to sign up,” said WRAL-TV Maintenance Engineer 2 Chris Cormier.  “We were thankful to have as guest speaker, one of our Post 5 alumnus and WRAL producer / photographer, Rick Armstrong . Rick even shared his original Explorer uniform from 40 years ago which he insisted didn’t fit anymore. We even had a surprise visit by WRAL-TV Sports Anchor Jeff Gravely who also shared what a unique opportunity Post 5 offers.”

Explorer Post 5 is still accepting applications for 14 – 20 year olds; the deadline is October 25th , with the first meeting scheduled November 7th and running through May. Interested students can find the application as well as more information on Post 5 through the link below.
