End of Year Parade 2016

Posted by Legion Cadets on December 8, 2016 at 7:00 PM Comments comments (0)

Hello

Well what a year we have had.

We have had a lot of changes over the last 2 years.

We have had some sad moments and some exciting times.

Brig. Warren and the Unit of a whole had the sad time of the death of Brig Warren's Brother and our Retired Chaplin after a long illness followed by this year the death of his mum and our Chief Chapperone.

Some of our Cadets have moved interstate and others moved on due to work committments or to join other organisations -- We wish them all the best in thier future career choices.

We welcome all our new recruits and looking forward to many more as we have expanded to the South of Adelaide with a New Camp at Edwardstown Primary School. (Camp Beho-Beho)

Our Cadets this year were involved in many Community Events including NASHO Service at Wallaroo, ANZAC Eve Service at St Clair, ANZAC Eve Vigil at Henley & Grange RSL, Rememberance Day Services x4 at Nursing Homes, Schools and the Daw Park Repatriation Hospital just to name a few.

Cadets were also involved in a run to the Birdwood Mill to join with the WVCG (Wartime Vehicle Conservation Group) to promote and show case the Unit. We look forward to further joint events in the coming years.

We had 5 overnight events this year 2 at HQ and 3 offsite where valuable training and lessons were held as well as fun activities.

Eligable cadets also got to attend an event and many qualified for their cross rifle badges. Well Done.

We have had some Cadets turn 18 and have now joined our Unit as Instructors.

This year has been a rebuilding and strengthening year and we look forward to bigger and better things to come in the New Year of 2017.

I Wish All a Very Merry Healthy Christmas and a Safe New Year.

Welcome Back for 2014

Remembrance Day

Posted by Legion Cadets on November 11, 2011 at 2:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Remembrance Day for this year was very busy. We performed a Catafalque Party at both Elizabeth Grove Primary School and East Para Primary School at 11am and then at 1:45pm, we performed another at Glouster Residential Care. Two of our Members also attended the service at Bublacowie on the Yorke Peninsula, where they represented the Legion.

Both schools want us back again next year & Glouster Residential Care want us again in the school holidays to give a talk & demo to the residents again. They enjoyed our last presentation (to the men's group) so much that they want us again, to present to both the women's group & the men's group.

Well done to all the Members who took part in these services, you are a credit to the Unit.

Glouster Residential Care

Posted by Legion Cadets on October 5, 2011 at 11:50 PM Comments comments (0)

On Wednesday 5th October, we attended the Glouster Residential Care Facility at Ingle Farm to give a talk and demonstration to the residents.

We had a terrific turn up of around 20 Member participants including adults and thanks must go to those people willing to give up their time for events such as this.

Approximately 30 residents listened to our talk and watched as our Cadets "strutted their stuff", with one resident moved to tears by the experience. We spoke to and shook hands with each resident in attendance, after the demonstration and all very very impressed with us.

A certificate was presented to the facility from the Unit, thanking all ex-servicemen & women for their dedication and sacrifices made for us all.

It was a very successful day and we will be planning more such visits in the future.
