Cadets to hold ceremonial review

Members of the Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron 902 Summerland have been busy this past year.

Members of the Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron 902 Summerland have been busy this past year with gliding, range, ground school, survival week-ends, weekly classes and physical fitness events.

In addition, the cadets have been involved in community service including Remembrance Day, Legion poppy sales, the V.E. Day cemetery candle lighting ceremonies, Canada Day, the Fall Fair and Action Fest parades, Festival of Lights, Summerland Food Bank, Legion clean-up as well as Adopt  a Road on Highway 97.

The current year also included connecting on ham radio communication with Cmdr. Chris Hadfield at the International Space Station and winning the Okanagan Wing Survival Competition, bringing the trophy back home again.

This year’s citizenship tour was spent in the Vancouver area where cadets went to the Vancouver Police Station, hiked at Lynn Canyon, visited to Granville Island and China Town and learned urban orientation skills.

One day was spent helping prepare, serve and clean up at an Outreach Centre, giving the cadets a new view of our world.

There was an amazing tour through the Vancouver International Airport where sitting in the First Class section of a airplane brought much excitement.

Two cadets have completed the criteria for the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Medal.

Summer camps coming up include marksmanship, drill and ceremony instructor, power pilot, glider instructor, survival and general training.

These camps will take the cadets to the Victoria area, Vernon  and Comox bases.

The annual ceremonial review will be held Saturday. June 15 at 12:45 p.m. at the Summerland Arena. The public is invited.

The new year starts in September.  All youth aged 12 to 18 are welcome to attend.
