The Navy League Cadets in Kemptville were kept nice and warm at the Remembrance Day ceremonies and Santa Claus parade this year by winter jackets purchased with the help of several generous donors in the community.
Commanding Officer A/Slt. Susie McIntosh and Lead Cadet Zachary Leaman met with a few of the donors on Friday at the Hulse, Playfair and McGarry funeral home to thank them for their support.
Susie would like to thank Patrick McGarry, David Finnie, Chris Drozda, Sharon McGarry, Associated Accountants, as well as Brian Boucher, Kelvin Holmes, Keith Shea, and Ms. Sareena Hopkins for their generous donations. “The Legion Branch 212 was also one of our big supporters,” she says.
The Navy League Cadet Corps Assiniboine is in its third year in Kemptville. There is no cost to sign up, and the Corps accepts girls and boys from ages nine to twelve who are interested in having fun, building skills and making friends. Zachary is eleven and has been a part of the Navy League Cadets for the full three years. “You get to have fun and go on trips,” he says. “I’m planning on going into the Sea Cadets next year.”
