Cadet Sha’Nissi Fafa Ayedzi of North Delta was selected as the Top Drill Team Commander during the six-week Drill and Ceremonial Instructor (Air) Course at Vernon Cadet Training Centre (VCTC) as a part of their course drill competition.
Cadet Ayedzi was selected as top drill team commander and was amongst 95 cadets who completed the six-week Drill and Ceremonial Instructor (Air) Course this summer.

We apologize for the THIRD location change, but due to our sites being unavailable, we will now be having our potluck at our regular location in the NORTH DELTA REC CENTRE.
Please bring a dish that will feed you and 4 other people, just like the Christmas potluck. Family and friends of 819 are invited to come to this event.
It is mandatory for the cadets to come to this event as this is one of our last training nights of the year. We also have a few cadets aging out that evening, so do not miss your chance to say goodbye!
