This is the kickoff for our annual Remembrance Day Vigil. At 1900h, cadets will meet at the Royal Canadian Legion’s Ed Boldt Memorial Hall (upstairs) and begin preparations for Remembrance Day on Sunday.
Bring your uniform (on a hanger) and your boots; pyjamas; a sleeping bag and pillow; toiletries; and any other essential items for a sleepover.
Dress for the Friday evening portion is casual. Jeans and a t-shirt are fine. Dress for the Saturday parades is full dress uniform: C1. The weather is anticipated to be cold, so bring your parka, gloves, and toque.
Breakfast will be provided by the Squadron Sponsorship Committee through donations by our cadet families. Please accept our sincere thanks if you are contributing to our breakfast. Please see the Remembrance Day Breakfast Contributions sign-up sheet and bring the items with you when you arrive on Friday night.
