The Royal Canadian Sea Cadets had their Annual Ceremonial Review Saturday, May 31 outdoors under sunny skies.

The reviewing officer this year was Coun. Sue Zacharias, who graciously accepted this offer, says Cadet spokesperson Fred Van Kuipers.

“Each year this is the highlight of the cadet year, before going to the summer training centre,” Van Kuipers says.

This year he says the Sue Prestwich Memorial Trophy was earned by Chief Petty Officer First Class Emma Davidson, and Best in Phase 1, was Able Seaman Parkins.

He says more trophies were to be awarded this week on the Cadet’s regular Thursday night parade night.

John Nosotti from Vancouver presented Ken Kvist with the 10-year service medal from the Navy League of Canada.

“They and the Department of National Defence are the main forces in the Cadet movement,” Van Kuipers says. “This program is free to all youth between the ages of 12-18 years.

The Chilcotin Sea Cadets parade every Thursday night in the parking lot behind  The GOAT radio station on First Avenue.
