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:

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.
