Fund Raising – Cadets were given a book of six 50/50 tickets to sell as part of our next fund raiser. The tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5. Tickets must be returned by this coming Wednesday, December 6th.

Badges – Several cadets have been recently promoted or have received new qualification badges. Please ensure these are sewn on in the correct place with the proper coloured thread (so as to blend with the badge). Information of where the badges should be placed can be found on our website:

Reminder: If a cadet cannot make it to a Wednesday night/regular event, the cadet should leave a message on the squadron answering machine 632-3215. Please do not e-mail Capt Phinney or post on facebook. This will ensure the admin o gets the message and can mark the cadet as excused.
