Breaking Boundaries

Mark Sunday, May 4th, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm on your calendars.

WO2 Frost has organized a new first-time event for the squadron.  Breaking Boundaries will give youth who are normally silenced the opportunity to speak with the 2VandenBos cadets about the unique challenges that most of us don’t see in everyday life. The event offers a unique perception into the lives of youth who have lived and are living with different challenges, to spread awareness of what they are facing and make our community a better place.

We are expecting to have 5 speakers faced with 5 different challenges.  Each will speak to the cadets for 10-15 minutes, and there will be a chance for questions.  The event will be held at the 420 Wing.

This is a great opportunity for 2 VandenBos cadets to meet and learn about others in our community.  The number of seats for this event are limited and you must sign up to attend.  To sign up for Breaking Boundaries, please see Sgt Clarke Eldridge.

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!
