Article submitted by: Samantha Rocheleau Recreation Coordinator
On Wednesday, March 29th, Cadets, Coaches, Club Presidents, and Supervisors were recognized for all of their hard work and dedication, at the 2016-17 Recreation and Competitive Club Recognition Evening. The event started at 1900hrs in the Cadet Formal Mess beginning with cocktails and h’ordeuvres, followed by a presentation including special recognitions and awards. The evening was led by the Master of Ceremonies, CWSRO OCdt Boule, and OCdt Caron-Lavoie, and concluded with a social, which allowed guests to celebrate all of their accomplishments from this past year.
During the presentation both Club Presidents and Coaches were honoured, and received a small gift to recognize all of the many hours and support that they have offered this year. Without the continued effort of these individuals, Recreation and Competitive Club programs would not be possible.
