There are a few items to consider for the coming weeks.
First, the Royal Canadian Legion (our primary sponsor) has officially begun the annual Poppy Campaign. Most immediately, this means that the poppy is a mandatory part of our uniforms until the closing of the afternoon Remembrance Day service on Thursday of next week. If you don’t have a poppy for your uniform, we’ll have them at the check-in table on Wednesday. This also means that the Legion Poppy Campaign is looking for volunteers in the community and cadets are authorized to participate.
Second, our first FTX is this weekend! We’re looking forward to a couple of days of hands-on training on Saturday and Sunday, so be prepared to come out and have a good time!
Third, Remembrance Day is next week and we have a role in it. Traditionally, 809 has stood morning vigil in shifts at the Old Town Cenotaph and has participated in the Old Town service in the morning and the Queenston service in the afternoon. Our role is scaled back this year due to COVID-19 precautions, but we’re looking forward to participating.
Further details surrounding the Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Day will follow. These events demand full dress uniform, so if you’re still missing parts, let us know and we’ll get that dealt with as soon as possible.
Remember to read the WROs in their entirety.
See you on Wednesday!
