Today is GIVING TUESDAY!

You can donate to the cadets of 540 Golden Hawks today by going to our profile page here: givingtuesday.ca/partners/540-golden-hawks-royal-canadian-air-cadet-squadron-sponsor-committee

#GivingTuesdayCA is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The β€œOpening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.

Our mission is to train tomorrow's leaders today! In recognition of today's leaders, the Town of Oakville's Air Cadets are planning to write letters to Halton Region's front-line workers and first responders in support of their leadership role during this time of crisis.

All front-line workers and first responders have been thrust into a position of leadership, as we take their lead in the fight against COVID-19. The least we can do is continue to express our appreciation for the marathon of care they have been running since day one. The cadets hope this act will not only warm the hearts of the readers but also encourage them to thrive on in their key role in the fight against COVID. We salute you!

This week, the #540goldenhawks would have shown their support to our local Royal Canadian Legions Branches 114 (Oakville) 486 (Bronte), as well as our community by participating in the annual Poppy Drives and marching in solidarity at both local Remembrance Day Services. This year, we turn to a very different November 11th.

We would like to express our thoughts today as the #540family members reflect, in their own individual way, upon the sacrifices many of this land's brave young men and women have made for us for well over 100 years.

As a youth organization whose aims are to help instill citizenship values in our young members of society, it is crucially important that 540 knows the history and value behind Remembrance Day, the significance of the Poppy, and what it means to Canada and the world. It's important to recognize that many of our cadets are members of this organization because of their family's ties to the Canadian Armed Forces, and the contributions made in their service to Canada, both at home and abroad.

Particularly today, for a brief moment at 11am, we will pause our daily life as a means to reflect and honour all of those who have served in conflict and peacetime for our Land's freedoms and liberties. May we never forget those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, #wewillrememberthem.

This week, the #540GoldenHawks would have shown their support to our local Royal Canadian Legions Branches 114 (Oakville) 486 (Bronte), as well as our community by participating in the annual Poppy Drives and marching in solidarity at both local Remembrance Day Services. This year, we turn to a very different November 11th. 

We would like to express our thoughts today as the #540Family members reflect, in their own individual way, upon the sacrifices many of this lands brave young men and women have made for us for well over 100 years.

As a youth organization whose aims are to help instill citizenship values in our young members of society, it is crucially important that 540 knows the history and value behind Remembrance Day, the significance of the Poppy, and what it means to Canada and the world. Its important to recognize that many of our cadets are members of this organization because of their familys ties to the Canadian Armed Forces, and the contributions made in their service to Canada, both at home and abroad.

Particularly today, for a brief moment at 11am, we will pause our daily life as a means to reflect and honour all of those who have served in conflict and peacetime for our Lands freedoms and liberties. May we never forget those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, #WeWillRememberThem.
