Army cadets conduct annual review

Eighteen members of the 1746 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps went through their annual review at the ARES gym on Saturday.

Friends, parents and supporters gathered for the ceremonial inspection, where LCpl. D. Bannick was named most improved cadet overall and 10 cadets were recognized for their perfect attendance. Mayor Ron Toyota presented LCpl. Elysian Gilmour – Sparling with the Clint J. Currier Memorial Award as most dedicated cadet.

The review marks the end of Capt. T. Mainville’s term as commanding officer. Also retiring is supply officer CI. E. Mainville. Lt. E. Gibbons was promoted to captain and will take over as commanding officer of the corps.

Cadets are not members of the military and there is no expectation that they will eventually join the Canadian Armed Forces.

Saturday marked the 63rd annual ceremonial review for the 1746 1 Service Battalion RCACC, which was formed in 1956.
