Thirty-five cadets from Trail’s 531 Air Cadets Squadron have invited the public and future cadets to join the cadets’ parents and friends on May 25 to watch the squadron’s Annual Ceremonial Review (ACR) that marks the completion of another successful training year.

The highlight of the ceremony is the squadron’s parade before a reviewing officer and an inspecting party, but will also include “demonstrations planned and organized by the cadets themselves in effective speaking and drill, and static displays will show the cadets’ involvement in general cadet training.” said Deb Hossack, the squadron’s public relations and fundraising co-ordinator.

Trophies and medals will be presented to the most proficient cadets.

The Royal Canadian Air Cadets are a non-profit organization that aims to develop attributes of good citizenship and leadership in youth aged 12 to 18. Cadets are not required to join the Canadian Forces and the 531 Squadron welcomes cadets from everywhere in our region.

The ACR takes place at 5:30 p.m. in the Lt.-Col. Arnold Henry Grant CB DSO Armoury (1990 7th Ave., Trail), and the new training year starts again on Sept. 7, also at the Trail Armoury.

For more information on the cadets, contact the local sponsoring committee chairperson, Michelle Szabo, at 231-5000 or szabomichelle@hotmail.com.
