LETTER: Cadets appreciate Langley’s support

Langley Advance letters may be published in print, online or both.

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the 746 Lightning Hawk Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the community.

We recently held our biannual fundraising Tag Day activity.

Langley and Cloverdale businesses and citizens were very supportive and generous toward our cadets.

The squadron currently has more than 150 cadets in the program between the ages of 12 and 18.

Activities in which our cadets participate include community service, assisting the Legion

with their poppy sales, Remembrance Day services, physical fitness, drill training, field training survival exercises, flight programs, and music, to name a few.

Fundraising offsets the costs of the cadet program not covered by the Department of National Defence.

We are very proud of the leadership and citizenship of our air cadets and we thank the community for helping our cadets to achieve their goals.

Bruce Foster,

Chair,

746 RCACS Lightning Hawk Sponsor Committee,

Langley
