On Tuesdays, November 10, 17 and 24, 75 Sqn is working with Boston Pizza Barrhaven to organize a takeout fundraiser and a socially-distanced badge pick-up night:
- We encourage everyone from the local community to order takeout from BP on those evenings:
- Call your order in – (613) 825-1414 and mention that you are supporting 75 Air Cadets (10% of proceeds will go to the squadron)
- In addition, on the same evenings between 1700 and 1900 hrs, parents/guardians will be able to collect rank badges
- Simply wait in your car and a staff member will do a distanced drop-off of the ranks into your trun
75 Sqn is starting an online poppy campaign as a way to honour our veterans
- All cadets are invited to submit a photo, drawing or other creative representation of a poppy using the Google Form linked above
- We strongly encourage cadets to dedicate their poppy to a family member or family friend that has served
- This is also a really neat opportunity to research some of the brave women and men who have served – visit Veterans Affairs Canada’s website for some inspiration
- The virtual wall of poppies will be featured on our social media channels – stay tuned!
Virtual Remembrance Day Ceremony with the Commander of Cadets Canada – 1045 hrs MST (1245 hrs EST)
- There will be no in-person Remembrance Day ceremony this year for cadets and cadets are not authorized to wear their uniforms for any in-person school activities.
- Cadets instead are invited to attend 783 Wing’s Virtual Remembrance Day Ceremony, where Commodore Kurtz (Commander of the Cadet Program) will be the special guest
Virtual CO’s Parade – 05 November 2020: 2015 hrs – 2115 hrs
75 Sqn is excited to host our first virtual CO’s Parade – the parade will be broadcast through our Facebook page and on each Level’s Google Classroom.
Safe Virtual Participation – New Procedures
- From now on, all cadets are being asked to use their rank, last name and initial when interacting online so that Staff can properly identify everyone (Ex. Sgt. Smith, J.)
- Cadets are not permitted to share Google Classroom links with anyone who is not currently part of 75 Sqn
- All cadets need to read and accept the Cadet Code of Conduct. All cadets must agree to follow this code at all times.
Join 75 Sqn! Accepting new cadets until Wednesday November 25th
