Other Events and Information

Updated Cadet Guidebook

All cadets, especially new ones, please be aware of the updated Cadet Guidebook, which you can download in PDF format from the home page of the squadron webpage.  The cadet guidebook will help you understand how the squadron works and provide you with the knowledge of what you need to know to properly function in the squadron.   It is to your great benefit to familiarize yourself with this resource.  You don’t have to download it, but you should at least go through it online.  It’s there to access whenever necessary.


Clothing Drive

Thank you to everyone who participated in the value village fundraiser.  In total, $221.60 was raised and many families now have clean houses. 

This was the first time the value village fundraising program was used.  We thought it went smoothly and may plan another event in the spring.


Call for Talent for Hot Chocolate House

Can you sing, dance, play and instrument or, pretend to sing, dance or play an instrument?  Perhaps you know some magic or have some other talent you’d like to demonstrate at the upcoming Hot Chocolate House?  If you have a talent, we’d love to see it.  Please email Mr. Ruddy at mikeruddy211@yahoo.ca to get a number on the performers list.


Free Squadron T-Shirts for Cadets

The SSC will be providing each cadet with a free 211 Sqn T-Shirt.  This T-Shirt is a little way of the SSC wishing to congratulate all cadets for participating the program.  Cadets will have the opportunity to be sized for T-Shirts during the break of the next training night (Wednesday December 4th).  Samples will be provided, and your size will be recorded for issue at a later date.  You must be present for measurement in order to receive your T-Shirt.
