3.  Email messages have been shared with Cadets and their Parents/Guardians on both 18 Aug and 8 Sep. Should you not have received these messages, be sure to update your email address we have on file ASAP. These letters have also been posted within the 'Files' section of the 'Parent Communications' page of this website.

4.  Our interactive recruiting pamphlet for the 2021/2022 year is now available for downloading and sharing (get it from the 'Files' section below). Be sure to help spread the word of our incredible Cadet Training Program and all of the unique (and free!) experiences that 2 VandenBos Squadron offers its youth age 12-18!

5.  Checkpoint is taking off the months of July, August, and September. Please do join us for our session on 2 October 2021 with 2-nes Trivia, which will test your knowledge of the music scene, including genres, groups/bands, musicians, lyrics, and albums. 

6.  Sports and Fitness is taking a break during the months of July, August, and September. Please do join us for our sessions  restarting on Thursday, 7 October 2021 from 1900 - 2000 hrs (7-8 PM) for some time dedicated to working on our personal fitness getting to know our fellow Cadets better.

7.   Join the Band - Now that you have heard and seen the band perform at Virtual ACR - think about being a part of the band this coming year.  We need new players for every instrument, especially percussion. No experience is necessary.  If you want more information or want a head start over the summer email CI Barron.  Watch for sign-ups on the website in September.

8.  Keep in touch throughout the Summer via IG (https://www.instagram.com/2_vandenbos/) and/or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/2WhitbyAirCadets). And don't forget to check the website for regular updates, too. Please record and enter your measurements into the 'Update Measurements' section of the 'SUPPLY REQUEST' submenu option on the Squadron website soon so that we'll be able to be better suited to fit you into Dress Blues, FTUs, and Squadron Red T-Shirts ASAP in the Training Year.
