1112 RCACC will participate in two Parades: Saturday, 6 Nov 10 at Royal Canadian Legion Tecumseh at 10:15 hrs. This Parade will last about and hour. Cadets will be dismissed after the Parade. The Legion will provide a light lunch. Cadets will be dismissed after the Parade. Cadets interested in assisting in Poppy Sales will work at Canadian Tire until 1600 hrs.
 Sunday, 7 Nov 10 at the Belle River Legion at 13:15 hr. (Cadets must get a ride to and from Belle River). The Parade will last about an hour and half and a Reception at the Legion will be held after the Parade. Everyone is welcome including Parents. The Legion will provide a light luncheon for all Cadets and Family members who attend the Parade.
Dress for both Parades is Dress Uniform with tie, Cadet Parka and black gloves - wear layers with the Uniform on the outside. Cadets without a Uniform are asked to wear black pants, black shoes, white or light coloured shirt with tie and a dark coloured jacket suitable for the weather with black gloves.  Cadets are not to purchase these items if they do not have them, this is just a guide. It is more important the Cadet the Parades then have the exact required dress. All Cadets will receive their Uniforms over the next two weeks. We are currently waiting for our supplier to ship us individual pieces.
