All cadets who join 690 are asked to help fundraise for the Squadron.
Each cadet is asked to either sell L'Auto Cadet tickets (September to beginning of February) or provide a donation of $180 for which a tax receipt is issued.
The funds raised through our fundraising efforts help to support:
1) Paying our rent - we rent our school from Felix LeClerc at an annual cost of over $23,000.
2) Extra cadet activities: Such as Nerf Wars, Bowling night, Gaming overnighters, movie nights, many other sports activities that the DND does not cover.
3) Special trips. We took the cadets to Ottawa last year for the Remembrance Day ceremony. Accommodations, transportation, food and outings.
4) Food nights: throughout the year we will sponsor free food nights to reward cadets for their dedication and hard work with pizza nights, and smoked meat sandwich nights etc.
There are many more events and activities that we sponsor throughout the year, and we support the Squadron in a plethora of other ways. Your support makes this happen. Thank you for supporting your squadron.
