Nametags are a required part of your uniform. If you wish to order an additional nametag for $5 please see the SupO.

If you asked for a nametag and your name is not on this list please contact the SupO (OCdt Hannus) ASAP at 905-328-8752 to have your name placed on the list.

OCdt Hannus is the OIC of verifying and validating high school volunteer hours. Please see the attached document for detailed instructions on how to submit your request for volunteer hours. Please do not submit your request for any volunteer hours until after Tuesday, 17 Dec 19 (the date of the GBF Food Move). You will compile all your volunteer hours onto one sheet and submit them as a group.
