New Commanding Officer
LCDR(NL) Travis Park has stepped down from command of C.B. Hill. Our new Commanding Officer is LT(NL) Kris Smith. LT(NL) Smith was former CO of NLCC E.J. Stolk, for 4 years, and has been with the Navy League program for over 10 years. LCDR(NL) Park will be hanging around for a few weeks, to help LT(NL) Smith get settled in.
Our first inspection of the year is on Friday, Nov 23, from 6:15-9:30pm. Cadets will be in full uniform, and officers in their C1's. This is a formal event, and extra care should be taken to ensure uniforms are up to par. Family members are welcome to stay for this event.
Grey Cup Parade
NLCC C.B. Hill, along with other Navy League and Sea Cadet Corps, will be participating in the Grey Cup Parade, on Saturday, Nov 24. Cadets are to be at Nonsuch in full uniform no later than 9:15am. See LT(NL) Kris Smith for pickup time. For more information on the parade itself, click here.
Just a reminder that exams are quickly approaching, and it may be a good idea to start preparing, since this is how we determine if cadets can be promoted to the next rank. You can download review packages for each rank on this website, under Resource Material. Good luck to all of you.
Safeway/Sobeys is looking to hold a Blitz Day for the Food Bank on Saturday, Dec 01, from 11:00am to 4:00pm, and they require both cadet and parent volunteers. Training will be provided. More information will follow. If you wish to participate, speak with Commanding Officer, LT(NL) Kris Smith.
In lieu of our annual Christmas Dance, CB Hill is trying something different this year. Instead, we will be holding a Christmas Dinner our our final event before departing for the holidays. The timings will be Friday, Dec 21, from 6:15-9:30pm, and the dress will be your favourite Christmas colors.
