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

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.
