Peter, Bill, & Mary Connect with Fall Bar SlateThree members of the RMC Club working out of Panet House had the opportunity last Friday (14 May) to connect with many of the III Years who will be moving into the key bar slate positions for the first term of the 2010-11 school year.
The event was a Club hosted Bar BQ. Peter Dawe, Club Executive Director; Mary Darlington; Gift Shop Manager; and Bill Oliver – e-veritas Editor mingled and chatted with the incoming Cadet Wing leadership during an informal and relaxed atmosphere.
Peter took a few moments to speak to the group as a whole – thank them for their support over the past three years and to solicit their continued support when it comes to the Fall term. Incoming CWC Jeremy Whalen also spoke to the entire group and told of his personal positive impressions of the RMC Club.
In recent years, most classes have a Club paid-up membership rate in the 75 – 80% range. The majority take out the membership in I year where they make a payroll deduction of as little as $10 per pay. By III year the membership for “life” is paid up. Many other cadets take out their membership during II, III & IV Year. By IV Year most have experienced and witnessed first-hand the many benefits of being a member of the RMC Club of Canada.
The cadet leadership plays a huge role in educating the I years of the many benefits of being Club members and this message was reinforced by Peter, Bill and Mary. The III Year leadership indicated that as a group that they will be promoting the Club and the many benefits throughout the Fall term and beyond.
Peter, Bill and Mary would like to thank Warrant Officer Bruce Matheson, Kitchen Manager and Officer Cadet Steve Burry and his team for setting up, cooking and cleaning up for this event. We offer our best wishes to the Top 4 – (first photo above – CWC: Jeremy Whalen; DCWC: Matthew Stokes; CWTO: Felix Kesserwan; and CWADO: Marjorie Gaulin-Riffou and the entire Fall of 2010 Cadet Wing Leadership.
