Annual validation forms went home recently, be sure to have them updated and returned as soon as possible. Any new cadets should try to have their paperwork, including birth certificate, provincial health card, or other required ID brought in as soon as possible to avoid missing any training or trips. There are 7 outstanding annual validation forms, these need to be in by November 30th in order to continue training.

Upcoming Events:

– 18 Dec 19: Squadron Holiday Mess Dinner. This will take place at the Legion on the west side. Dress for cadets is uniform, with a white shirt and black bow tie.

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 Meunier or post on Facebook. This will ensure the Admin O gets the message and can mark the cadet as excused.
