94 Newmarket Optimist RCACS - Vimy

$265 of $9,494 goal

Raised by 6 people in 7 months
Help send forty dedicated young Air Cadets from 94 Squadron (Newmarket)  on an incredible educational opportunity to tour the battlefields that Canadian soldiers once fought on many years ago.  Connecting past to present, and enshrining in our youth the values of those who fought to defend our country, the Vimy Ridge trip will take place over March break in 2018.

The 9-day trip will take the Cadets from London, to Normandy, Vimy and Paris.   Travelling around London, they will relive the tension of The Blitz by seeing inside the Cabinet War Rooms, the secret headquarters where Churchill and his staff directed Allied moves. They will visit Juno Beach in Normandy, where Canadian troops landed on June 6, 1944 and began to force the German retreat during World War II. 

The group is fundraising to help offset the costs for the forty participants.  All monies raised will equally benefit the Cadets, and be directed through the 94 Squadron.

===================================

94 Newmarket Optimist RCACS has been offering the successful Air Cadet youth program for over 75 years.  Originally formed in 1941 in the Town of Stouffville,  and moving in 1964 to our current location in the Town of Newmarket, the program supports more than 100 young leaders with a passion for learning and serving community. We have been instrumental in assisting young men and women to follow their dreams while becoming outstanding citizens in the community where they live and will contribute to later in life.

Dedicated to community service, learning leadership skills, and training in gliders, aviation, survival, marksmanship and drill, the Air Cadet program in Newmarket has over 100 participants.  They actively support annual Poppy Drives and participate in Remembrance Day parades.


This campaign is endorsed by the 94 Royal Canadian Air Cadets Squadron.  Contact the Squadron Sponsoring Committee at ssc@94aircadets.ca .
