The event will include demonstrations planned and organized by the cadets and static displays will show the cadet’s involvement in various activities and general cadet training.

The reviewing officer is Phil Hartman, president of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 288—Westbank.

The cadet unit is commanded by Capt. Nancy Landsiedel, assisted by a staff of five, who handled administration, supply and training.

Several medals and awards will be given out at the parade. Local service clubs who have supported the cadets will also be in attendance.

Eight cadets have been selected to attend summer camps this year at Albert Head, B.C., and Penhold, AB. Four cadets from the squadron will have an opportunity to participate in the Arlington Fly-In Show, to be held July 7 to 14 in Arlington, Washington.

The aim of the cadet organization is to develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, and to promote physical fitness and stimulate an interest in the activities of the Canadian Forces.

Young people ages 12 to 18 may enrol in the cadet program. The new training year starts Sept. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Westbank Lions Community Centre.
