Weekly Announcements

For Monday, March 6, 2017

CO’s parade – ensure those uniforms are in good shape. Main areas to improve upon include boots (shined to a high gloss, free from dirt), badges (sewn on using the correct colour thread and correctly placed), hair cuts and shaved for the gentleman, hair properly styled for the ladies (in a night neat bun or french braid free from wispies), and pant length (should fall between the 2nd and 3rd boot laces from the toe). Your uniform is your responsibility and no one else’s. Take pride in your appearance and do the best you can – ask for assistance when needed. Please review the dress regulations (under Resources – scroll down to the Supply section) for clarification on the regulations. YouTube also has a lot of great videos out there that show you how to properly shine your boots and maintain your uniform.

Permission forms will now be housed in a centralized location under Resources. If you hover over Resources, you will see the menu item come up. Right now, we have the bowling permission form posted that is due on Monday.

Lottery Tickets are WAY overdue!!! Get those tickets stubs in on Monday, no exceptions. Phone calls have already started going home. We need those ticket stubs back even if you don’t plan on recouping the money by selling them as you already paid for them.

Uniforms – if you are a new cadet and are still waiting on your uniform to arrive and don’t believe your name has been called to see the supply officer to pick it up, contact us immediately. For those who were not issued a belt, socks, or tie, please make an appointment with supply as they have arrived.
