Cadets from 2-3-2-8 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corp wrapped up a year of virtual training last evening with a virtual change in Command. Captain Daryl Wilkinson turned over command of the unit after ten years to Captain Laurel Mymko witnessed by Area Commander Major Rosin. Wilkinson and Mymko both thanked the Cadets, parents, staff and all who have in the past and continue to support the Cadet program.
In a recorded message from Ottawa Commodore Josee Kurtz Commander of Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers acknowledged all involved for their commitment noting the importance of the Cadet program. She explained the tenets of the Cadet program are the foundation that brings value to any and all walks of life. She noted being a leader in your community may look different for all of you but the best part of being a Cadet is essentially you get to choose your own path and your own adventure. She added there’s no clear definition of what it means to be a good citizen but you have clearly demonstrated a commitment and resilience and to her that is the spirit of citizenship.
Awards and promotions earned by Cadets over the past year were presented along with a 50th Anniversary Army Cadet League of Canada Award to Alan Mymko for his 20 years of dedication to the Corp.
