Area Legions Make Donations to 2563 1 Hussars Petrolia Army Cadets

Many have said that it takes a village to raise a child. In a time when many are looking out for themselves, four area Legions took the time and opportunity to look out for our children.
Recently the Petrolia Legion, the Corunna Legion, the Oil Springs Legion and the Brigden Legion all donated to the 2563 1H Petrolia Army Cadets, to support the many activities and programs they provide.
Petrolia Army Cadets is part of the Cadet program of the Army Cadet League Canada (Ontario) as the Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, and has had a presence in Petrolia for nearly 30 years. Intended for teens age 12-18, many activities are undertaken, including camping, mapping skills, pipes and drums and survival training. A main focus of the program is Leadership, Team building, Community participation and Responsibility.
The Cadet Corps program is founded on the belief in inclusion for all, and ZERO fees are charged to join or for equipment and programs. Although dress Uniforms and some activities are funded by the Department of Defense, the majority of activities are funded with fundraising from the Support Committee and generous donations, like those received from the four area Legions.
Anyone interested in joining Cadets can do so at any time throughout the year, once they are 12 years of age. For more information, or to arrange a no obligation visit, please contact the Cadet Corp at 519-312-6555 for more information, or visit our website, petroliacadets (period) c o m
