Another week has gone by and I hope everyone is managing to stay upbeat despite the physical isolation. It’s not an easy task, I’m confident that each of you is showing leadership and setting a good example for your peers and our community.
Updates have come down from the National Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers Support Group that the cadet program will remain suspended until at least 30 Apr 2020. This is somewhat disappointing, but understandable and entirely necessary if we’re to ensure that COVID-19 is going to be controlled. As a result, there will be no training nights or supplemental in-person cadet activities for the month of April. We’re looking into options for finishing out our year properly if this becomes extended into May and will keep you informed as we know more.
Last week, I put out a survey to see how many cadets have the ability to participate in on-line training. To date, we’ve had seven (7) responses. This is a good beginning, but I don’t want to go down the path of developing something unless I’m certain that a majority of the unit can participate. If you haven’t replied yet, please do so as soon as you can.
Looking forward to seeing everyone either on-line or when the current situation passes.
