We Invite you to come visit!
2824 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps the Cadet Organization Police School (C.O.P.S.) is a free program for youth ages 12-18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities. Cadets are encouraged to become active, responsible members of their communities. They make valuable contributions to Canadian society on a daily basis in terms of environmental, citizenship and community activities. The mission of the Cadet Program is citizenship, leadership, physical fitness and to stimulate an interest in the Canadian Forces. Peel Regional Police Service (PRP) is the official sponsor of the C.O.P.S. program.
Tuesday November 11th 2014 is Remembrance Day, and I am aware that this year, it falls on a school day. Our affiliated Legion, Branch 101 requires our support on this day for their Remembrance Day Service.
I would just like to stress the importance of attendance at this service to the cadets and the members of the Legion with which they are involved on this day.
Some members of Canadian Forces were not much older than some of our cadets when they went to fight for the freedoms we cherish today and 2824 Royal Canadian Army Cadets involvement in this service is extremely important to the veterans.
Please give thoughtful consideration to allowing your son or daughter permission to attend this important event. Most principals and teachers will be very accommodating to allow your child to catch on missed work for this important event.
Please feel free to give a copy of this letter (link below) to your child’s school as justification for the time off.
If your son or daughter can attend, a community service volunteer letter will be issued for the day by me. As well, please feel free to attend along with your son or daughter.
This year we would like your son or daughter to meet at Branch 101 Royal Canadian Legion at 3850 Lakeshore Blvd. West Toronto (Browns Line Loop) at 9:30 am Monday November 11, 2014. We will be finished at 12:30 after lunch has been served.
Busing will also be provided to and from 180 Derry Rd. Mississauga for Bravo, Charlie and Junior Cadets, if their parent/guardian cannot bring them to Branch 101. The bus will depart from 180 Derry Rd at 9:00 am and return at 1:00 pm.
