The Cadet Corps Of Western Canada Requests Assistance From Veterans
During recent meetings and discussions with the Cadet League of Canada, members of The RCEME Association of Western Canada, The Canadian Peacekeeping Veterans Association (CPVA) and The Canadian Association of Veterans in United Nations Peacekeeping (CAVUNP), have been asked to consider providing assistance and support to their local Cadet Corps.
It is hoped that retired Veterans will consider donations of their time, money and effort in support of our young Cadets.
Specifically, Cadet Corps respectfully request the following assistance and experience from retired Veterans:
1. Physical attendance as guest speakers to present training classes, or lecture on military history subjects.
2. Provide or obtain accoutrements through contacts with regular force units, such as badges, buttons, flags, books, music, etc.
3. Provide advice on how to get things done, when dealing with town, municipalities, Provincial and/or Federal agencies.
4. Provide advice and assistance; letters of recommendation, sit on Cadet promotion boards, offer service at summer camps, etc.
5. Attend Cadet Corps activities, such as parades, mess dinners, competitions and special events.
6. Provide financial assistance;(cheques should be made out to Army Cadet League of Canada. Specify the provincial branch and
specific Cadet Corps if desired). Tax receipts will be issued for all private donations.
7. Serve as a volunteer League Liaison Representative for your local Cadet Corps.
Any Veteran who is interested in offering assistance of any kind to his or her local Cadet Corps can obtain more information or details by contacting the following;
Mr. Ed Liukaitis, Southern Zone Chairman, Cadet League of Canada, firstname.lastname@example.org or
Mr. Terry Martin, President Alberta Branch, Cadet League of Canada, email@example.com
