Surrey’s 2812 Royal Canadian Army Cadets Corps (RCACC) paid tribute to their patron Dorothy DeLorme on her 95th birthday on Sept. 16 at the Fraser Heights Community Centre.
Ninety-five cadets presented the honoured guest with 95 followers.
The cadet regiment, affiliated with The Seaforth Highlanders of Canada Regiment, has a long-standing relationship with the DeLorme family, which has created a ten-year legacy of support for the Seaforth affiliated cadet corps, 2812 RCACC in particular.
DeLorme regularly attends the cadets’ formal functions.
DeLorme is the widow of Private Jack DeLorme, an infantryman from Edmonton who fought in the battle of Ortona, Italy, during the Second World War.
During the birthday ceremony, DeLorme was given a short musical presentation by piper Sgt. Shawn Liu and vocalist Sgt. Amy Rudman.
