Please take note of the following rules that will be enforced to protect the safety of all cadets:
- 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
In case you missed it, a summary of last week’s info session can be found here.
Boston Pizza Takeout Fundraiser!
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 trunk
Remembrance Day – Important Changes
- There will be no in-person Remembrance Day ceremony this year for cadets
- Cadets are not authorized to wear their uniforms to any in-person activity with their schools this year.
- 75 Sqn will instead organize some virtual commemorative activities – see the Poppy Campaign announcement below for more details!
