MAJOR MCLELLAN 'S ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 

  • Welcome to everyone this evening and good to see the new recruits here tonight.

 

  • I would also like to welcome our special guest Captain Mitchell Krasey visiting from the Regional Cadet Support Unit.  

 

  • This past weekend we participated in the Battle of Britain at the Legislature Grounds. I was a little disappointed because there were fewer cadets that attended than I expected from our squadron. The parade itself was excellent even in the challenging new environment. Thank you to everyone that participated and especially to the parade positions and flag party. Next year is the 75th anniversary, so I hope we have a huge turnout for that.

 

  • I would like to reinforce that Gliding is happening this Sunday, September 28, 2014. It is very important that if your name was on the list, that you show up for the Gliding. Times are set aside for you and if you don't show up it means that a cadet could have gone in your place. If you are not able to make it, you must notify us immediately via email info@395squadron.ca or via telephone at 780-454-5434. The Gliding will happen rain or shine so dress appropriately and show up on time and expect to have some fun!

 

  • Saturday activities will be starting up this weekend, September 27, 2014 here at the squadron. I strongly encourage everyone to attend to maximize your cadet experience. There is no cost to you to participate in these activities. If you don't participate, you will be missing out on opportunities like making new friendships, team building skills, learning new skills and most of all having fun! Give it a shot, you never know what will come from it.

         

       All Corporal's and Flight Corporal's who would like to be considered for

         promotion, the exam is on September 30, 2014 @ 6:00 pm.

 

       All Sergeants who would like to be considered for promotion the exam is on

         October 7, 2014 @ 6:00 pm. All exams are at the squadron.

This calendar provides you with all of the dates for every activity/event/training that we have upcoming from now until Christmas 2014. Make note of the dates listed on the calendar and plan ahead so that you can participate in the event. Take a moment and look through the whole calendar.

  • Tonight we have a very unique situation where there is a cadet who aged out but is not with us this evening because he is enrolled at the University of Ottawa and is a prestigious program.  WOII Brodey is enrolled in a dual degree for a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering as well as a Bachelor of Science in Computer Technology both with CO-OP and in the French language. His family is here to join us on the parade square while I read through all of his accomplishments. A graduation certificate and Letter and pin from the Alumni was presented to his family which they accepted on behalf of WOII Broddy. WOII Broddy sent a message to the squadron. Please take a moment to read through his inspiring message.

 

  • We have been reviewing all eligible candidates for the position of WOI since last summer and the departure of some of our seniors. We have made a decision and would like to announce the new Chief is:

    WOI Robin Tang

 

Congratulations everyone!

 

Have a great week and see you on Sunday at Gliding!
