Other Announcements for Cadets

 

·       Any cadet interested in being awarded the Royal Canadian Legion Cadet Medal of Excellence, please be sure to get the information sheet and prepare your application package.  This is a very prestigious medal awarded each year at the Annual Ceremonial Review in June.  Nominations are due to Capt. Duncan on Feb. 17, 2015.  ALL cadets are eligible for this, regardless of age, level or rank. 

·       Any cadets interested in taking part in Effective Speaking training, identify yourself to Capt. Duncan next week.  Training will occur over the next two months with some cadets being selected to attend the zone competition in March.

 

PARENT ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 

·       All parents are once again welcome to visit and come in the building on Tuesday night training. There is still a requirement to sign in/out using a civilian ID such as a driver’s license. We hope that parents will once again attend closing announcements regularly and become involved with our Parents’ Association. Thank you for your patience over the past 2 months.

 

·       There is a Bingo on Saturday, January 24, 2015 for which VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Lana Lamont:  395squadron@gmail.com. It is very important that we provide the required number of volunteers for the bingos or else we get fined and lose funds. The money raised goes towards conducting cadet training. Without it, some training may not occur. Any parent/guardian can volunteer and any cadet that is 14 years of age or older can also volunteer.  No screening is necessary.

·       We will be getting back to fundraising right away as we are a little behind schedule to the building restrictions in 2014.
