CO's Parade and Cadet Week Proclamation

Thursday, October 31, 2019 will be a big night for 533 St. Albert RCACS! There's lots happening that you're going to want to be around for!

First, the City of St. Albert will be proclaiming the week of November 1-7, 2019 as Cadet Week in St. Albert! This will be the FIFTEENTH year that the city has done this to recognize the importance of the Air and Army Cadet programs in the community! We are honoured that this year Mayor Cathy Heron will be in attendance to do the proclamation as well!

 

What does this mean for the cadets?

Well, cadets will be meeting tonight at St. Albert City Hall (St. Albert Place on St. Anne St.) at 6:15 PM. We know this is a little earlier than normal, but in order to work with the city we need to adjust the timings a little bit! We will still be in Full Dress - nothing about that has changed!

After we finish the proclamation, cadets will be marched back to the St. Albert Community Hall, where before we head inside we will raise the Air Cadet flag on the flag pole (which the St. Albert Community League allows us to fly for the entirety of Cadet Week). Once inside we will be continuing on with our Commanding Officer's (CO's) Parade!

 

What's so special about tonight's CO's Parade?

Tonight marks two months into the training year, and at this time we take all of the new cadets who have joined this year and officially swear them into the squadron and assign them to their flights for the year! It's a very exciting time as it's the first full parade all of the cadets will participate in together!

Aside from the excitement around the first year cadets, we also have several special guests coming, including Mr. Doug Delorme from the Royal Canadian Legion (Branch 271) who will be speaking to the cadets about the upcoming Remembrance Day activities such as the Poppy Blitz and the Remembrance Day Parade, as well as Mrs. Dawna Morgan, the Vice Chairperson of the Air Cadet League (Alberta Provincial Committee), and Mr. Howie Cooke, our Squadron Advisor!

 

But what about Hallowe'en?!

We know, there's candy and costumes tonight, and we're in uniform! Unfortunately due the nature of tonight's activities we don't have much leeway to change things up for Hallowe'en. HOWEVER! To make it up to everyone, we will be having a deferred Hallowe'en celebration next week (November 7) where we will have costumes and candy and activities in amongst the regular night. More details about that at the end of CO's Parade during announcements!

 

As always, the Cadet Week Proclamation and CO's Parade is open to all parents and friends who want to come and watch! We hope to see you all there!
