Cadet of the Week
Meet The Top Cadets In The Sale Of
Air Cadet League Lottery Tickets
Not everyone may be aware that the Air Cadet League in Ontario holds a lottery throughout the province to
raise funds to support the glider flying program and other league expenses. In return each cadet unit participating also
receives a portion of the funds generated. This past week the Squadron completed the sale of its lottery
ticket allotment several months ahead of the closing date for ticket sales.
The cadets above were the top sellers in the squadron of League lottery tickets. These four cadets actually sold between
them a total of 36 books of tickets and the top cadet sold 18 books of tickets. This is an impressive achievement
as each book is actually worth $60. In other words these four cadets succeeded in generating $2160.00 for the cadet program.
Credit is certainly due to all the cadets who participated but credit is also due to Capt. Chandler whose
untiring efforts in managing this program helped to make it so successful.

It’s Coming “Chadburn Ski Day” Mount Ste Louis Moonstone
Once again, the Squadron will be heading to Mount St. Louis – Moonstone ski resort. We have planned to take a bus load of cadets skiing on February 19th. Thank you to the Rotary Club for subsidizing the cost of this trip for every cadet. We have received great pricing from Mount St. Louis and the Squadron will be covering the cost of the bus. The prices are on the Signup Genius web site. Money will be collected starting in a couple of weeks. We will let the cadets know when their money is due. For skiers or amateurs or experienced skiers this is one activity cadets will not want to miss. So make sure you sign up.
