Creston Army Cadet Brody Mainville at the Vernon Cadet Training Centre.

Army Cadet Brody Mainville, a member of Creston’s 1746 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, spent a week at Vernon Cadet Training Centre during spring break improving his drumming skills under the guidance of professional Cadet Instructor Cadre instructor Lt. Megan McConnell of Invermere.

After a week of daily individual and group practice, the military band and the pipes and drums students performed a concert in the centre’s dining hall for the 100 other cadets and officers who were attending other courses during the week.

The cadet program is a national program for young Canadians aged 12-18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the sea, army and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces. Cadets make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community activities. Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.
