The Vankleek Hill Army Cadets are seen here at the 2015 open-house they held at Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute.

Air and Army Cadets hosting open-house events

Two local cadet detachments will be hosting open-house events next week. The 57th SD&G Highlanders Army Cadet Corps of Vankleek Hill will be hosting an open house on Wednesday, September 7, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., at Vankleek Hill Collegiate Institute (VCI).

On Tuesday, September 6, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., Air Cadet Squadron 379 will be hosting an open-house at Glengarry District High School, in Alexandria.

It is free to join the cadets, including the cost of uniforms and activities. The program is open to youth between the ages of 12 and 18, who are interested in participating in challenging and rewarding activities, while learning about the sea, army and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Cadets are encouraged to participate in community, environmental and citizenship activities. They are not members of the Canadian Armed Forces, nor are they expected to join the military.
