There will be a lot of saluting tonight when the 186 Lloydminster Air Cadets squadron holds its Annual Ceremonial Review.
The ACR will feature the presence of the squadron’s former commanding officer, Capt. Ed Buerfiend as a reviewing officer.
Buerfiend is the current commander of the Army Cadet League at CFB Wainwright and he will join Capt. Holly Matias, the current commanding officer of 186 squadron.
The ACR includes an awards ceremony that will begin at 6 p.m at Southridge Community Church to wrap up the season.
Awards will be given for top first year cadet and for unfailing contributions to the squadron that has approximately 35 members from ages 12 to 19.
“There’s a cadet volunteer award, an award for effective speaking, marksmanship for air rifle, and for ground school instructors mark which is how they get their pilot licence,” said Lisa Hart, chairperson for the squadron’s sponsoring committee.
One student will be getting his pilot licence this summer.
“One of the perks of air cadets is that they can receive their pilot licence both for glider and power for free,” said Hart.
There will also be an award for the most outstanding cadet and a few others.
This year’s ACR comes on the week of the 75th anniversary of the national program of the Air Cadet League of Canada.
Lloydminster Mayor Rob Saunders proclaimed the week in council chambers Monday with a delegation that included Capt. Matias and Hart.
