MAJOR MCLELLAN 'S ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 

  • My apologies for being absent last week but it could not be avoided. This was the one time I have not been in attendance on a Tuesday in over a decade! But I did call in to let everyone know, so I hope that you remember to do that as well if you are going to be absent.

 

  • The Arrow Flight is getting very large and that is awesome! In two weeks members of the Arrow Flight will be divided into existing flights. You will all soon have new members in your flights.

 

  • We have a new staff member who brings a lot of different experience with her. Please help me welcome Lt N. Brown to 395 Squadron.

 

  • This is just a heads up that next month HMCS will be replacing the heater system in this building. Because of the age of this building, there is asbestos and it will need to be removed. Because of that, we may have to cancel 1 or 2 training nights and possibly weekend activities, as this building will not be available while the work is being done. I don’t know the exact date of the work or how much notice we will receive, but as soon as I know, we will get the information to you through phone call, Facebook, email, website and/or text.  Please stay tuned for more information.

 

  • Eight cadets were chosen to participate in the Zone Competition Biathlon on November 9, 2014. They are:

 

WOII Sanchez

FSgt. Chee

FCpl Hollik

FCpl Szadowiak

FCpl. Labayan

Cpl. Hollik

Cpl. Maher

LAC Duncan

 

Congratulations and best of luck!

 

  • There have been some changes to the criteria for being promoted. One of the changes is that you must have had some fitness testing recently. Stay tuned for updates and hopefully more promotions will happen soon.

 

  • Please help me congratulate Cpl. Wilkinson for achieving his First Aid badge at camp this summer. His certificate and badge was presented to him.

 

  • Mr. Wayne Reitsma presented two long service medals for 4 years of service  to the following cadets:
