EX-CADET WEEKEND FUN RUN

Anyone for a run around Fort Henry?

Ex-Cadet weekend at the end of September will again include a run around Fort Henry for Old Brigade members, other ex-cadets and present-day cadets – and members of their families as well.

In essence this is a re-creation of the Cadet Wing Harriers Race as it was run over the decades until early in this century.   The difference is that it is not a race; it is a “Fun Run” including members of all elements of the college student body, past and present.   The plan is to start from the College Parade Square at 1500 hours on Saturday, September 30, and run completely around the Fort Henry Hill before returning to the parade square with smiles on our faces.

Ex-cadets of classes having reunions this year, from recent grads to Old Brigaders, are particularly invited to join the run.  If any of the classes wish to gather a group together from their year for the run, that would be even better. The college’s Harriers teams – both male and female – have already agreed to participate.

If the younger groups want to make a bit of a race of it, they are welcome to do so, but the Old Brigade members need not race – the completion of the run will be reward enough.  Afterwards, all participants will be invited to a nearby mess to quench their thirst and celebrate the comradeship that is such a great part of the college experience.

The run has been going on for a decade now, and we hope to have 30 or more runners – both older and younger – join us.  Anyone interested in participating is requested to contact the organizer, 6891 Bill Aikman at baikman@rocketmail.com to confirm arrangements.

Anyone looking for a bit of running and lots of fun can sign up for an Ex-cadet Soccer Game on Reunion Saturday (weather permitting)?

No skill nor cleats are required and NO one is too old to play.

Since we’ll field 9 players per side, you can be part of a really Old Eighteen. We may need lots of subs.

You can expect a 45 minute straight time game, with penalties after, if deemed necessary or desired.

This game will only happen if enough ex-cadets contact Bruce Robinson (Cdn4ever@gmail.com) in time to reserve a field. First responders get to start in their chosen positions and lowest college numbers guarantee playing time.

Captain Nichola Goddard’s name was chosen for this new award because she was very much a game changer in her own right. Nichola was the first Canadian female soldier in a combat role killed in action (in Afghanistan on 17 May 2006).

Nomination Procedures:
  • Only individuals may submit nominations. All nominations must consist of a clear summary of the reasons for the nomination (500 words or less), at least two letters of support, and examples of the nominee’s work. Electronic submissions are preferred.
  • Submissions may be submitted in either of Canada’s official languages;
  • Only the person selected and the nominator will be notified;
  • All documents submitted as part of the submission will be kept at the CDA Institute national office and not returned to the nominator;

Dianne Knight: Honouring the Memory of Her Daughter

Inspired by the example her daughter set of always striving for excellence, Grafton resident Dianne Knight has always strived to honour her memory in the eight years since she died in Afghanistan.

And given what a star athlete 22007 Michelle Knight Mendes (Class of 2001) was, participating in the Bike Up Northumberland fundraiser has seemed an appropriate way to do so — Dianne even rode the 100K option last year.

Known to many by her rank of Major (which she achieved by the age of 30), Michelle stood out in the student body of both Grafton Public School and CDCI East before being accepted into Kingston’s Royal Military College for a history degree and a career she loved.

Dianne would always marvel at her daughter’s drive (for example, she found the girl swimming in the family pool one day while reading a book), and participating in the Bike Up event is her own tribute — and her own way of supporting her local hospital, as proceeds from the Sept 9 event will be shared between Northumberland Hills Hospital and Campbellford Memorial Hospital.

Dianne hopes you will consider signing up as well. But if you are not available to do so, she said, please make a pledge to show your support.

And if you have no one else to pledge, you can support her efforts by calling 905-349-2214 or visiting Here.
