Are you between the ages of 12 and 18 and looking for a challenge?
The 219 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corp is in recruitment mode and searching for youth who will join and help them celebrate the 100th year in 2014.
There is no cost to join the program and uniforms are free.
The program offers training in citizenship, leadership, physical fitness, pipes and drums, marksmanship, biathlon and adventure training.
By completing certain courses at summer camp, cadets are also eligible for a high school credit toward their diploma.
Those who enroll between now and Jan. 1, 2014 will be part of the milestone group.
Those interested in joining can drop by the New Glasgow Armouries at their open house on Sept. 11 between 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. for a chance to see what they’re all about. All that’s required to join is a health card and birth certificate.
For more information contact Capt. Randy Royal at 759-3230 or call 752-3564 on Monday and Wednesday evenings after 6:30 p.m.
