There was a pleasant surprise this past Monday evening as the Squadron was presented officially  with the trophies that the unit won at the Eastern Band and Drill competition.

There was an additional award as both the band and drill teams were presented with plaques for being the best dressed units on parade.

Thoughts from the Treadmill

This will be a short insert this week with only a couple of thoughts.  Please remember the Annual Ceremonial Review will be on Tuesday night at the Legends Centre.  Cadets are to be at the Legends Centre no later than 1800 in uniform.  Please remember that a good meal before the parade is very important as is drinking a good amount of water.  Parents are asked to be in their seats no later than 1940 for the parade to start at 1955. 

There will be one last chance to sign up for the year end trip.  Staff will be at the hall on Monday night at 7:00 pm to accept payment and check documentation.  After Monday night, the list will be sent to the US Border, and no additions will be possible after that.  Please contact Ms. Di Loreto if you have any questions or concerns.

Congratulations to both SWO Jackson and DSWO Tan on their graduation last week.  Great Job by both of you over your cadet careers.  Congratulations to the incoming Squadron Warrant Officer, WO1 Bliss on your appointment.

That’s all for now.

Stay Safe and Have a Great Week

Major Bliss
