Dear Cadets, Parents and Guardians,
Please find attached an important letter from the Commanding Officer regarding the upcoming mess dinner on Monday, December 18th. It would be appreciated if you could review this document with your cadet(s) to ensure they understand how the dinner will work beforehand.
A few important quick facts:
1) Dress for cadets will be full uniform, without white tops (do not bring them). Females are allowed to wear their hair in a more formal "up-do" style. A french braid or alternative is acceptable, as long as their hair is all up and off their collars. Male cadets please ensure you have a proper haircut.
2) Location: First United Church, Mount Pearl. Date: December 18th, arrival time 1830hrs (please be prompt). There will be a short social/dance for the cadets afterwards. Pickup time can be anywhere between 2130hrs-2200hrs.
3) If a cadet CANNOT attend, it is important that they notify us and fill out a leave request form prior to this Friday. The corps is covering the cost of each meal, and we need to give final numbers by Friday.
We are looking for a couple favours to help support this event.
-We need 6-8 volunteers to help serve the dinner, clear tables, and help clean up afterwards.
-We also are looking for someone to help make cupcakes for the dessert portion. We will need approximately 60 cupcakes, so one or two volunteers would be great.
If you are able help out with this, please e-mail kmacphee@ 284marconi.com
Any other questions feel free to e-mail us. officer @284marconi.com
