History of 567 Random Squadron:
567 Random Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron (RCACS) was formed in 1953 under the sponsorship of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 27, Clarenville. The first Commanding Officer was Mr. Angus Drover, a veteran of World War II. For a short period of time the squadron was sponsored by both Branch 27 & the IOOF Oddfellows organization, however, after a few short years the Legion again took over sponsorship and continue to be the sole sponsor of 567 Random RCACS. The present Commanding Officer is Captain Jackie Vokey who started out as a cadet with 567 Random RCACS.
What do Air Cadets Do?
The motto of the air cadets is “To Learn....To Serve....To Advance” With this in mind, the aim of the cadet program is to develop in youth the attributes of good citizenship and leadership, promote physical fitness and stimulate the interest of youth in sea, land, and air activities of the Canadian Forces. Activities include:
- Team sports
- Effective speaking and leadership training
- Summer camps and international trips
- Military marching and parades
What does it cost to join?
NOTHING! There are no registrations fees, dues or costs for the uniforms or for the basic Cadet Program. Summer camps are also free, with the exception of whatever amount of spending money you wish to bring along. With a couple of year’s seniority you can even get paid to go to camp!
