📣 #ShoutOutSunday: As a nice treat for our senior cadets after their PD workshops, they each received a custom 540 cookie to enjoy!

🍪 These cookies were handcrafted, one by one, by Zoe from A Tablespoon of Time. They tasted just as they looked… AMAZING!

🤩 Thanks Zoe for the hard work you put into making these! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.

🥳 This past Sunday, our #540StaffCadets had a miniature Commanding Officer’s parade to commemorate their hard work and effort that they achieved during the two-weekend PD workshop.

🧑‍🏫 Our newly graduated Staff Cadets are now ready to take what they learned and apply it in their classrooms as they instruct our cadets this upcoming training year.

🏆 As well during the parade, a few Level 5s were recognized for exceeding the standard during the workshop with a promotion to Flight Sergeant — congratulations!

🥳 After a year and a half of screens, 540 is back to being in-person face-to-face!

📚 Over the next two weekends, our #540SeniorCadets are participating in a series of workshops that will help them fine tune their instructing skills in anticipation of our return to in-person training.

🥾 Staying in their designated cohorts, staff cadets were issued their brand new field training uniforms (FTUs) and were taught how to properly wear and care for them — skills that they will share with their own level cadets soon enough.

🍦 Following a uniform lesson, they participated in many different team building activities! They ended the morning with a nice cool treat.

CONGRATULATIONS, CAPT LACOMBE!!!!

So very well deserved! Thank you for all that you have done, and continue to do for our #540Family!At the recent virtual Change of Command ceremony for Ontario Cadets, Commander CJCR had the honour of presenting a commendation.

In recognition of his stellar leadership, innovation, and tireless support to the Air Cadets of the Halton-Peel Zone in the Niagara and Greater Toronto Area (NGTA), Capt LaCombe from 540 Golden Hawks RCACS was awarded a CJCR Commendation.

His valuable insight and guidance in the creation of the "Halton-Peel Strong" multi-Squadron field training exercise (pre-COVID) provided NGTA cadets and staff an experience not readily available outside of a cadet training centre. Capt LaCombe’s sterling example exemplifies the level of commitment and professionalism worthy of emulation across the CCO, while reflecting great credit on the Cadets and Junior Canadian Rangers. #BravoZulu

Lors de la récente cérémonie virtuelle de passation de commandement de Cadets de l'Ontario, le commandant du RCJC a eu l'honneur de présenter une mention élogieuse.

En reconnaissance de son leadership exceptionnel, de son innovation et de son soutien inlassable aux cadets de l'air de la zone Halton-Peel dans la région du Niagara et du Grand Toronto (RNGT), le Capt LaCombe du 540 Golden Hawks a reçu une mention élogieuse du CJCR.

Son implication et ses précieux conseils lors de la création de l'exercice en campagne inter-corps "Halton-Peel Strong " (avant le COVID) ont permis aux cadets et au personnel da la RNGT de vivre une expérience unique et difficilement accessible à l'extérieur d'un centre d'entraînement des cadets. L'exemple remarquable du Capt LaCombe illustre un niveau d'engagement et de professionnalisme digne d'être imité dans l'ensemble du CCO, et fait honneur aux cadets et aux Rangers juniors canadiens. #BravoZulu
