Trophy Robert Groulx
For the first time since receiving its charter in 1953, Unit # 318, Lennoxville, of The Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans in Canada, will award the “Robert Groulx” Trophy to one deserving cadet from the 2721 Cadet Corps of the Fusiliers de Sherbrooke.
The presentation will take place with the Honorary Presidency of the MP for Sherbrooke, Critic for National Revenue from the New Democratic Party, Mr. Pierre-Luc Dussault, on May 21st 3:30 pm, at the Fusiliers de Sherbrooke Armoury located at 64 Belvedere south, in Sherbrooke.
This trophy was created by its founder, Robert Groulx, Service Officer of ANAF Unit 318 and Vice President of Dominion Command of the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans in Canada, to help the various Cadet Corps in the Sherbrooke area encourage our young cadets.
The Robert Groulx trophy is not a medal that one affixes to his jacket but, above all, is designed to be a goal for young cadets to aspire to, that demonstrates belief in the values conveyed by their Cadet Corps, as well as a conviction that being a proud member of such a group is beneficial on several fronts.
Five trophies were established, one each to honour the five Sherbrooke area Cadet Corps mentioned in this press release. There are four other trophies which will be presented both at an earlier and later date:
