CO’s Message

Good afternoon!

Training night is on Wednesday… with the possibility of a familiar face making an appearance! Be sure to come out and find out who it is.

Remember to read the WROs in their entirety.

See you then!


Between last week and the week before, we had five potential new cadets come out to training! We’re very much hoping that they’ve found something they love about what we do and that they’ll stick with us. Keep up the good work and always be on the lookout for people who you think would benefit from out program.

Annual Validation Forms and Detailed Health Questionnaires

We’re down to three cadets (at last count) who need to send in their Annual Validation Forms. Lt Russell will soon be chasing down those who still have to send theirs in.

Those cadets who have been instructed to fill out a Detailed Health Questionnaire must complete it and send it directly to the Regional Cadet Medical Liaison Office at the address below.

Attention: Medical Liaison Office
Regional Cadet Support Unit (Central)
Canadian Forces Base Borden
Post Office Box 1000, Station Main
Borden, Ontario
L0M 1C0

This needs to be done as soon as possible as cadets without validated medical clearances can be temporarily barred from participation. After dealing with the isolation of COVID-19, this is the last thing we’re looking to have happen.

Poppy Campaign

I’ll be speaking on Wednesday with Royal Canadian Legion Branch 124 about the schedule for the Poppy Campaign and will update everyone as I have more information.

The Poppy Campaign begins on 29 October this year and ends on 11 November. During this period, the Poppy is a mandatory part of cadet and CAF uniforms.

Remembrance Day

We’re still waiting for permission to run our traditional vigil at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Cenotaph on Remembrance Day. If that comes through, we expect to be running half-hour shifts from 0600 to 1200. We will not be doing our traditional overnight before the vigil, nor will we be coming back to the Legion building afterwards, though I hope we can pick back up on those traditions next year.

Cadets who will be missing a half day of school to participate will be provided with a letter to explain the situation to their schools.

Cadets are encouraged to wear their uniforms to school and participate in Remembrance Day ceremonies there as requested. Participation in the vigil is still mandatory, but earlier shifts can be arranged for cadets who need to be at school for this purpose.
