B.C.’s newest cadet corps is in Delta

Open house for 1867 Seaforth Highlanders on Saturday

If you’re between the ages of 12 and 18 and looking for a new challenge, the Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps is interested in talking to you.

B.C.’s newest Army Cadet Corps, the 1867 Seaforth Highlanders, is hosting an open house on Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Heath Traditional Elementary School, 11364 72. Ave.

Meet current members from both the 1867 and 2812 (Surrey) Seaforth Highlanders Army Cadet Corps, and learn about the exciting activities that the Cadets are involved with, including marksmanship, band, orienteering, field training exercises, summer camps and more.

Special guests scheduled to attend include Delta Mayor Lois Jackson and Delta Police Chief Jim Cessford, who will help unveil the official 1867 Seaforth Highlanders RCACC banner at the school.

There will also be displays from groups such as the Canadian Armed Forces and Delta Police.

The Canadian Cadet movement has three main aims:

• To develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership.

• To promote physical fitness.

• To stimulate an interest in the activities of the sea, land and air elements of the Canadian Forces.

Cadets are not military members and are not expected to join the Canadian Forces at any time.

For more information about the event call Captain David Smith at 778-837-8793 or email david.smith@cadets.gc.ca
