Final Call for Awards Banquet

For those who have not submitted their information for the Awards Banquet on Wednesday, it’s important that you fill out the form tonight. The SSC needs to submit final numbers, so if your name isn’t on the list, you’ll be on the hook for getting your own dinner for the event… and nobody should miss out on free food.

CO’s Message

Good afternoon!

This is the last publication of WROs for training year 2020/21. We made it through and have high hopes for a resumption of in-person training in September!

This week, we will be merging our traditional Awards Banquet, Annual Ceremonial Review, and SWO Change of Command into one event on our last training night this coming Wednesday. We’re doing something similar to our Virtual Mess Dinner in December, where we arrange to have dinner delivered to your home and conduct the event virtually. Were we meeting in-person for these events, we would be expecting family members as well as cadets to be in attendance. This year, the Squadron Sponsorship Committee is generously providing a large enough meal so that our cadets and their families can enjoy our end-of-year celebrations with their cadets.

Dinner is being delivered to your home. It is IMPORTANT that you fill in the Virtual Awards Banquet Form to indicate your attendance and any dietary restrictions NO LATER THAN 1900 (7:00pm) on Monday, 31 May. Failing to do so does not prevent you from attending, but you’ll be on your own for dinner.

If any of our cadets will not be attending the banquet on Wednesday, please let me know as soon as possible.

We’re relaxing the formality of the Awards Banquet as well, considering the medium. We would normally be in 1A (CAF) or C1A (cadets) for an event like this, but we’re going to stick to 3B (CAF) and C3F (cadets) for the virtual event.

See you on Wednesday!

48th Annual Ceremonial Review

On the 25th of May, family, friends and invited guests gathered to watch the cadets of Niagara-on-the-Lake parade at our 48th Annual Ceremonial Review (ACR). The ACR was presided over by Lord Mayor Betty Disero, our Reviewing Officer for this year. She is pictured here presenting the Captain (Retired) Brian Howard, CD award for the Cadet Squadron Commander to Warrant Officer 1st Class William Couroux.

The squadron was also privileged to host The Honourable Rob Nicholson, MP for the riding of Niagara Falls, who presented the Best First Year Cadet Award to Leading Air Cadet Mitchell Vanderberg.

The squadron extends its thanks to both of you and to all of our staff, sponsors, family and friends for making the day a special one for our cadets.

Baked Goods for Post-parade BBQ Tomorrow

Apologies for the late notice, but once again, we’re asking parents to contribute desserts and baked goods for our post-parade BBQ on Saturday. Anything that is your favourite and nut-free would be ideal, but please avoid anything that requires utensils as these will be in short supply. Cookies, brownies, and butter tarts are all good examples. As always, we’re hoping to fill the dessert table without additional cost to the squadron. For those who can’t (or, in this case, don’t have the time to) bake, Timbits and store-bought cookies will be accepted with a smile too. Desserts can either be dropped off with your cadet or brought when you come for the parade itself. Thank you in advance.

Please contact Mrs. Mehrotra on the Sponsoring Committee to let her know what you’ll be dropping off. Email: n_mehrotra@hotmail.com

PS: Marked Tupperware containers make returning dishes easier.

2018 Annual Ceremonial Review – Video

Thanks to Mr. Nicolescu, we have a great summary video of Saturday’s Annual Ceremonial Review, including a few shots of the Annual Cadet Awards Banquet from the night before. Whether you made it to the event or not, give it a watch. There are a lot of great cadets in there to be proud of.

Thank you very much, Mr. Nicolescu, for putting this together for us.

Annual Ceremonial Review 2018 – Treats

Good morning.

We’re putting out an all-call for a few things needed at Saturday’s Annual Ceremonial Review.

1. We’re looking for nut-free, bite-sized baked goods and desserts. We’ve noticed over the years that cadets, former cadets, and well… everyone, needs some sugar to keep themselves going at these events. If you’re bringing them in a reusable container, please label the container so that we know to whom to return it.

2. We need coolers to store drinks and keep them cold for the event. If you have one that you can loan us, please bring it with your cadet when you drop them off at 0900h (9:00am).

Thank you!
