This weekend on Sunday, June 3, RCAC# 768 Jet Ranger Squadron celebrated their 2012 ACR. The chief guest was Gary Clarke-Marlow, the staff sergeant from the RCMP besides many other guests from the city and outstation, as well as invited guests from the Legion Branch 94.

The air cadets made all the parents and officers proud with their performance. The review panel inspected the parade and their uniform. Awards were handed out to the Cadets for their outstanding work done throughout the year. After speeches from the esteemed guests, all were ushered inside the Legion by President Sonia Bland and the staff to be joined by the cadets and their parents/relatives and siblings. Snacks were served by the parents and all mingled around.  Everyone was encouraged to go through the display boards put up by the cadets. A few cadets explained the display boards to the guest.
