For­tune cadets ship shape at An­nual Re­view

The Southern Gazette - - Editorial - BY CARL ROSE FOR­TUNE, N.L.

Sea Cadets of RCSCC 290 Sir Humphrey Gil­bert, For­tune, im­pressed their lead­ers and the in­spect­ing party at their 35th an­nual cer­e­mo­nial re­view May 12 at the Lake Academy gym.

The Cadets demon­strated tim­ing and pre­ci­sion in the ju­nior and se­nior drill ma­neu­vers. The au­di­ence got to wit­ness the pageantry of the cadet move­ment with em­pha­sis on colour and mu­sic in a com­bined ef­fort of the band, guard and the colour party.

Re­view­ing of­fi­cer For­tune Mayor Charles Pen­well was im­pressed.

“It is an hon­our and priv­i­lege to be your re­view­ing of­fi­cer this year. The dis­play you put on this af­ter­noon was ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic,” he told the cadets in his speech at the cer­e­mony.

Pen­well con­grat­u­lated Com­mand­ing Of­fi­cer Lt (N) Car­rie Ge­orge and her fel­low of­fi­cers for pro­vid­ing the train­ing in lead­er­ship skills and devel­op­ment, which he de­scribed as ‘sec­ond to none in the province’.

Ge­orge thanked the Cadets, say­ing, “it takes a lot of ded­i­ca­tion and hard work to make a suc­cess­ful year, and you have done it.”
