Community invited to Sea Cadet Annual Ceremonial Review at the Trail Armoury.

The cadets and staff of 131 Kootenay, Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corp invite the community to attend their Annual Ceremonial Review in Trail.

The event will take place on June 10 at 2:45 pm at Lieutenant Colonel Arnold Henry Grant Kemball, CB, DSO, Armoury, 1990 Seventh Avenue.

The cadets will be on parade, demonstrating the skills and training they have received over the year, as well as receiving awards and recognition for their hard work.

“I am looking forward to seeing the cadets show their new skills to the community. I encourage everyone to come out and see what this program is all about,” said Lt(N) David Cherrington, Commanding Officer, 131 Kootenay, Royal Canadian Sea Cadets

The Corp is also looking for new staff members to assist with the administration, training and supervision of cadets. Adults who are interested in providing a dynamic, structured and engaging program to youth in Nelson and area are encouraged to contact Major Kevin DeBiasio at kevin.debiasio@cadets.gc.ca for more information.

The Royal Canadian Sea, Army and Air Cadets are national programs for youth ages 12 to18, which aim to develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, promote physical fitness and stimulate the interest of youth in sea, land and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces. The programs are community based and require local adult leaders in order to be successful.

CIC Officers are dedicated members of the community who work with youth in their spare time by providing them with a dynamic and structured program. Training and pay are provided but CIC Officers are not required to deploy overseas or be operational members of the Canadian Armed Forces. They are community youth leaders, making a difference at home.
