On June14th 2014, the 2556 Royal Candian Army Cadets held their first Annual Ceremonial Review (ACR). The event marked the culmination of the training year and served as a venue for dignitaries and families to come and see the cadets in uniform.
This year the event was held at the Tamitik Arena and Major G. Reddy CD, served as the reviewing officer. Major Reddy is the officer in charge of the Army Cadet program for all of BC and traveled from Victoria for this special event. The cadets had 13 cadets on parade. This number is almost double the number of last years parade as sea cadets and demonstrated significant growth and interest in the program. The corps expects 10-15 new members next year and may even form a band if the numbers permit. Also in attendance were Mayor Monaghan, Councillor Murphy and Councilor Feldhoff. The training year has ended for the program however over half of the cadets will be attending summer training courses held in Vernon BC this summer.
The program is free to join and those interested should visit the corps website www.kitimatcadets.com
