There is a Lock-in night fundraiser planned for Friday-Saturday (28-29 Nov) at the Armoury.   Cadets need to collect a min $10 in pledges.  See Capt Giesinger for more information.  Pledge sheet available on the webpage and at Cadets.

Dec 3 Cadet Night:

Next weeks parade is a very special parade.  This will be Major Tweten’s retirement parade.  The Reviewing officer will be the Lieutenant Governor, this means the parade must run differently.  The Cadets need to be at the Armoury at 6:00PM so they can help setup but also prep for an early fall in.  Cadets that are overly late will not be able to fall in.

Parents are invited to stay an watch.  Some chairs will be available on the parade square.  ALL CADETS MUST HAVE HIGHLY SHONE BOOTS AND WELL PRESSED UNIFORMS.

The dress of the Day is full uniform.

After the parade, there will be a Squadron Photo with the Lieutenant Governor.  Cake and drinks.  The Cadets will be dismissed at that time also…likely around 8:20/8:30pm
