Thank You

On behalf of 2 VandenBos RC Air Cadet SSC, THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this past week’s tagging weekend a success!

Thank you to our two air cadet organizers for a job well done.  Thank you to our parent drivers, parents who took care of lunches, all CV, staff and SSC volunteers who spent their entire weekend making sure everything ran smoothly.

We also want to thank the Enterprise Airlines staff and Emmanuel Reformed Church for allowing us to use their facilities this weekend.

At this time, we are planning a small “thank you” event on Friday, April 25th and we hope to see everyone who helped out during the tagging weekend.

Return Signed Camp Forms

If you have been offered a camp, please get your signed Offer of Participation Courses, Positions and Activities forms back this week.

Forms must be returned to Cpt Hutchuk at the Hangar on Wednesday night, or Thursday night at Regular Training.  If you don’t return your form you risk losing your camp offer.

If you are not accepting the camp offer, you still need to return your signed form indicating you are not accepting the camp offer.  Doing so will allow the camp to be offered to another cadet.

Thank you.

Congratulations to the Band

Congratulations to the 2 VandenBos Competition Band!

This past Saturday the band travelled to Kingston, Ontario to participate in the Band Competition.  The band has been working hard with several extra practices to get ready for this competition.  All their practice and hard work paid off.  The 2 VandenBos Band placed 3rd overall in the competition, their best finish yet!  What a tremendous result for the day!
