NOTE: Cadets not able to attend are to call or text the Sqn cell phone 289-440-2641 and leave a message with their name and why they will not be at cadets.
2. CHANGES TO CADET DRESS REGULATIONS
A uniform is an outward symbol of commitment, identity and ethos. Coupled with overall appearance, the uniform is the most powerful visual expression of pride by the individual and is the primary means by which the public image of the Cadet Program are fashioned. Uniforms identify all Cadets as members of a cohesive and national youth organization.
For the updated orders of dress and changes to the regulations please refer to our web site:
We will continue to enroll new cadets and transferring cadets to the squadron over the next month and adding them to our growing recruit flight. Should you know someone interested in Air Cadets who is 12 yrs old or older, consider bringing them out to a parade night.
