Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Ma­gog

The Ma­gog Marine Cadets held a spe­cial mid-sea­son cer­e­mony, last Fri­day, and it will be one of the last ones for lo­cal Cadet Ni­cholas Boudreau who re­cently turned nine­teen. “We held a ‘Prom­ise’ cer­e­mony and we gave out dif­fer­ent awards dur­ing the event,” said Ni­cholas’ fa­ther Vin­cent Boudreau, the pres­i­dent of the Ma­gog Marine Cadets. Ni­cholas is fin­ish­ing his ser­vice with the Cadets as the troupe’s First class of­fi­cer.

It is free to join the older Cadets (12 to 19 years) and only $50 a year to join the younger Cadets (9 to 12 years old). The Cadets take part in loads of ac­tiv­i­ties and out­ings and can earn money and learn valu­able skills through the pro­gram. “Vin­cent learnt to sail with the Cadets and he now has his bronze level sail­ing. The Cadets keeps the kids very ac­tive and in­volved,” com­mented Mr. Boudreau.

Parad­ing for the last time as Com­man­der of his troop, Ni­cholas Boudreau gives the cer­e­mo­nial salute.
