We today got approval from HMCS STAR (in Hamilton) to use their facilities for Dec 20th Meet and Greet.

Our invite will go out soon (Adam McInnis is preparing it), Matthew will get a copy and Bill Oliver will also get a copy.

Thanks very much for asking, I imagine your list will be covered by Matthew’s list.

Cadets are encouraged to wear uniforms, but don’t have to (unless the order is given at the college). Cadets and their families are invited as guests of the branch, all ex-cadets are asked to bring $10 which will be donated to the Veterans’ Food Bank in Calgary.

The bar will be open, and finger food will be served.

Please contact myself (scott.treadwell@macquarie.com) or Tim Toews (timmytoews@gmail.com) with questions or to confirm attendance.

The Branch president will buy a suitable libation for any cadet that travels home and attends the reception on the same day. If the cadet has written an exam on the day of the reception and attends, we will let them drink it.

Hello RMC and RMC St Jean Officer Cadets returning to NS for Christmas,

You are invited to attend a Christmas Meet and Greet reception in the the Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess at the Halifax Armoury on Tuesday, December 28, 2010 from 2 to 4 pm.

You are welcome to bring two guests. If you would like to bring more guests please let me know.

The reception will enable potential ROTP applicants and their parents, our NS Branch members and their spouses/guests, and visiting RMC/RMC St Jean Cadets home for the holidays to meet one another and hear about experiences at the Colleges in Kingston ON and St Jean QC.

We are sponsoring this function to identify and support ROTP applicants in applying to go to RMC/RMC St. Jean for their education and a career in the CF.

Our Branch will fund and organize this function so there will be no cost to attend. There will be a “No Host” Bar, and fruit and vegetable trays and a cheese platter will be available as well I encourage our members to attend to meet the ROTP applicants and their parents and the visiting Cadets. I also request serving members to wear appropriate Service Dress.

Limited parking for about 40 cars is available at the Armoury and there is plenty of on street parking in the vicinity. Entry to the Armoury is on the west side facing onto The Halifax Commons. The Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess is on the upper level and can be accessed on the right hand side of the building once one has entered the Armoury.

For planning purposes please let me know if you plan to attend and indicate the number of persons who will accompany you.

I am looking forward to seeing you in December. Merry Christmas to you and yours. May 2011 bring you prosperity and good health.

TDV!
