Dear Cadets and Families,

An invitation to our 83rd Annual Ceremonial Review was distributed last night. The invitation is for the Review on the Saturday, AND the Awards Banquet on the following Wednesday. It is attached below for anyone that did not get their invite.

Most importantly, the Awards Banquet requires tickets to enter the Welland Legion due to limited seating. See information below to learn how to get your tickets:
