North Shore Group Cadet Dinner 2019
We would like to thank everyone in attending our first annual North Shore Cadet Group dinner.
The dinner marks the beginning of a formal co-operation between all the cadet groups on the North Shore. Sea, Army and Air cadets formed a council to plan various professional development and social activates for all cadets to participate in.
For the reminder of 2019 we have two events on the books for the North Shore.
First the North Shore Challenge - and adventure race of sorts where cadets will be solving puzzles and collecting clues while piloting bicycles around downtown Vancouver.
Second, we have the North Shore Sports day.
We are looking forward to seeing the council tackles their new responsibilities over the next year and we are hoping to see everyone again at our next North Shore Dinner.
Special thanks to 103 RCACS for their assistance in setting up for the dinner.
Lastly, we would like to thank our guests who attended.
1. Councillor Jessica McIlroy from the City of North Vancouver
2. Councillor Marcus Wong from the District of West Vancouver
3. Captain Sam Susanthan the Chief Instructor of FCM Marine Campus
4. Father Giovanni Schiesari the assistant pastor for the Christ the Redeemer Parish
Thanks again to everyone involved, and we hope to see you next year.
