The Kemptville Branch of the Navy League of Canada, which is responsible for oversight and support to the local Sea Cadet (boys and girls 12-18) and Navy Cadet (boys and girls 8-12) Corps, recently provided Rotarians with an orientation to the organization. The cadets shared their personal thoughts on the benefits of membership. All referenced developing life, leadership and communications skills, learning how to be part of a team and, most importantly, having lots of fun! Rotarians were impressed that the programs do so much to build good community citizens.
Following the presentation, the Navy League was presented with a donation of $1,000, which will be used to support the many activities of the Corps. Pictured are Sea Cadet Officer Chris Churchill, Petty Officer Carter Churchill, Leading Seaman Hunter Churchill, Rotary President Cora Beking, Rotarian Donovan Arnaud, Navy Cadet Sub-Lieutenant /Commanding Officer Susie McIntosh, Navy Cadets Hailey & Gracey Panciuk and Navy League President Mike McIntosh.
