6. COMMUNITY SERVICE HOURS REPORTING AND RECORDING
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 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. This is so OCdt Hannus
does not receive multiple requests from each cadet every time there is a poppy session,
Remembrance Day parade, etc.
7. SPONSORING COMMITTEE
Did You Know?
Any empty alcohol containers from parents can be donated to the Sqn – just drop them off next to
the telephone booth by the coat room and we will return to the Beer Store. Also, 62 collects
Canadian Tire money! (You know, the old CT bills that collect in the bottom of your junk drawers?)
This donation helps the squadron purchase any number of items and is very much appreciated.

11. MESSAGE FROM WO1 CLOUSER
With the Holidays fast approaching, it can be easy to forget that not everyone is fortunate enough
to be home for Christmas. With this in mind, Canada Post has an amazing program which sends
Christmas Cards to “ANY CANADIAN FORCES MEMBER” who may be serving overseas. We are
asking each and every one of you to bring in at least one Christmas / Holiday card on the parade
nights approaching our Christmas stand down to send to a Forces Member. Please feel free to fill
out the card with your name (or family members’ names, etc…) and mention that you are an air
cadet of 62 Squadron. Keep in mind that any Canadian Forces Member can receive your card, so
please keep the subject of your message as general as possible.
Please address envelopes to:
Any Canadian Armed Forces Member
PO Box 5140 Stn Forces
Belleville ON, K8N 5W6
Please make sure cards have an ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPE and give them to WO1
Flight points will be awarded if every cadet from that flight brings at least one card!
