Cadets of 3064 Rocky Mountain Rangers Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps conducted their Annual Ceremonial Review at the fields of the Williams Lake Airport on Sunday, May 21.

This was the culmination of the 2014/2015 cadet training year.

The Reviewing Officer was Royal Canadian Legion Branch 139 president Bonnie O’Neil.

She was accompanied by 3064 Commanding Officer, Captain Mary Crawford, and 3064 sponsoring committee president Crystal Sheridan who took the opportunity to speak to the cadets while they were in ranks.

Cadets were then presented with awards and medals.

The recipients were as follows:

• Best Green Star, Cpl. Angelica Hyde

• Best Red Star, Cpl. Devon Elliot

• Best Silver Star, Sgt. Michael Bailey

• Best Dressed Cadet, Sgt. Jaidyn Harrison

• Best Attendance, WO Corbin Abercrombie

• Best Marksman, WO Corbin Abercrombie

• Lt. Eric Rowe Memorial – Cadet Sergeant Major, MWO Sheldon Samra

• Royal Canadian Legion Medal of Excellence, Sgt. Kaitlin Lebrun

• The Lord Strathcona Medal – Pipe Major, MWO Alexander Sheridan.

After the presentation to the cadets, Sheridan presented Joe Olsen with the Army Cadet League Volunteer Service Medal for his long-time service to the 3064.

Following the ceremony parents and the general public were invited to see how the cadets live in the field when on weekend exercise, and the subjects they learn during the training year.

These included map and compass, navigation, music, and marksmanship to name a few. After the festivities parents and cadets enjoyed a barbecue hosted by the 3064 sponsoring committee.

Cadets now have the month of June off before departing for summer training in various camps across Canada before returning for the 2015/2016 training year in September.

The Cadets Canada movement is open to youths aged 12-18 years old and is free of charge.
