Wed Dec 17….and a thank you

Thanks to everyone who attended the Christmas Party yesterday it was a great success! Lots of food and fun for the cadets! A big thank you to Diann Marshessault for organizing the event and to all the parents who cooked, baked, set up and cleaned up, we appreciate your effort and participation.

On Wednesday 17 Dec it will be our last parade night until the New Year, this will be the last day to bring food donations. Cadets can wear civilian clothing and bring their parade boots, we will be conducting training at the beginning of the night and then some fun activity after that. Pick up and drop off will be at the same time.

The president Leighton Kathler would like to reschedule the parents meeting from 1830-1900, it will be quick. The legion will be presenting the cadet corps with some money at the beginning of the night as well. Upcoming events will be discussed at the parents meeting. January-March is a busy 3 months for the cadet corps so please attend the meeting if you can.

Thank you
