Cadets honoured with promotions

Members of the 902 Summerland Royal Canadian Air Cadets received promotions at a recent ceremony.

Family and friends, squadron officers and members of the Parents’ Sponsoring Committee were proud to participate with the 902 Summerland Royal Canadian Air Cadets at their Christmas Party and Promotions night on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

Warrant Officer 2nd Class Bryce Johnston was the Master of Ceremonies.

Captain Philip Paterson, past Commanding Officer, was pleased to promote the following cadets: Lara Desjarlais, Bryanna Johnston, Benjamin Jones, and Jack Taylor promoted to the rank of Corporal; Josiah Baran and Meaghan Vader promoted to the rank of Flight Corporal; Rachael Smith promoted to the rank of Flight Sergeant; and Zachary Fitzpatrick was promoted to the rank of Warrant Officer 2nd Class.

The cadet motto is To Learn, To Serve, To Advance.

Cadets  develop self-confidence, leadership and teamwork skills. They are exposed to the air element of the Canadian Forces and learn about aviation, wilderness survival, physical fitness, and more. They serve and are involved in community events. Cadets have a wide range of opportunities and advance through proficiency levels, parade positions and ranks.  January is a good time to join Cadets.

Boys and girls who are 12 or older can join Cadets and experience fun, friends, and adventure.

Cadets meet on Wednesday evenings at the Harold Simpson Memorial Youth Centre in Summerland.
