Saanich Peninsula air cadet annual review coming up June 4 at the airport

NORTH SAANICH — Air cadets and their families will be at the Victoria Airport June 4 for their annual ceremonial review.

Marking the end of the year for cadets, the annual ceremonial review for 676 Kittyhawk Squadron will allow the cadets — youth between the ages of 12 and 18 — to showcase skills learned over the past year.

According to Lori Lumley, chair of the sponsoring committee at 676 Squadron, the cadets program is one of the largest youth programs in Canada. It focusses on developing community and social skills, discipline, leadership, self-confidence and can stimulate an interest in a career in aviation.

The annual review takes place at the 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron facility at the Victoria International Airport on Sunday, June 4. The event begins at 10 a.m. and finishes at 12 noon. For more information, call 250-656-4423.
