Last Saturday, along with MP Karen McCrimmon, I had the pleasure of joining the Kiwanis Kanata Air Cadet Squadron (872) at their annual Squadron Review.
The organization of boys and girls aged 12-18 met at the Johnny Leroux Arena for the ceremony, celebrating another year of training and commitment and over 175 participants joined the festivities this year.
Since 1980, the Kiwanis Kanata Air Cadet Squadron has provided an exceptional opportunity for youth to gather for not just basic air training, but a variety of optional activities running most nights of the week.
The cadets offer a great way for young people to work toward future careers as well as providing some good opportunities to have fun.
I would like to provide my thanks to both Mark Vermeer and David Burniston for coordinating the program and their gracious invitation to attend the ceremony.
I would also like to congratulate the graduating members of the squadron on another year of service and commitment and wishing you all the best in your future endeavours. Keep up the good work!
