Announcements – 3 Dec 2014

Dec 3 Cadet Night:

This 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 or as shortly thereafter as possible 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.  Cadets, ensure your uniform is well maintained and your  boots are shine as glass.

The dress of the Day is full uniform with medals

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.

Range
There will be Range on Sunday from 12-3PM.  There are 9 open spots so if you are interested in shooting, please signup….at start of parade night.
