Weekly Routine Orders – Week of 9 Dec 2018

9 Dec 2018

RO Number

We had a great showing at Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Santa Claus Parade yesterday. 809 Newark was given the first position in the parade and asked to form a flag party to start things off. We flew the Canadian flag, the Niagara-on-the-Lake town flag, and our own squadron banner as we and Snoopy (“Curse you, Red Baron!”) led the parade through the streets to the tune of “Snoopy’s Christmas” by The Royal Guardsmen. A big thank you goes out to Turkstra Lumber for providing the truck for our display; to Vintage Hotels for the loan of decorations; to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 124; to Lt Russell and all supporting members of the staff and sponsorship committee; and our cadets for another successful parade.

Our extra-curricular activities are done for the calendar year and we’re starting to slow things down as we approach our winter stand-down from 20 Dec 18 to 6 Jan 19, but there are still a few things happening:

  • Our effective speaking program will be continuing on Monday nights until 17 Dec.
  • We have a Merit Review Board on 10 Dec for FSgts and WO2s wishing to be considered for promotion.
  • We have our December CO’s Parade on 12 Dec with a few things to announce.
  • We have our formal Squadron Mess Dinner on 19 Dec to end the first part of our training year on a high note.

We’re still looking for new cadets to join our ranks, so if you know anyone who might be interested in what we do as a squadron, bring them out on 12 Dec. It’s a light training night and they get to see some of our pomp and ceremony, too.
