Winter Update

As we head into the last two months of 2019, there are a lot of opportunities to connect with our 142 Squadron family and the broader community in south Etobicoke

Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade 
On Saturday, 7 December, our cadets are invited to participate in the annual Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade! The parade begins at Dwight and Lakeshore and makes its way along the Lakeshore to Long Branch. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase our squadron and also to recruit new members from the community.
Sign Up: Lakeshore Santa Claus Parade

Annual Holiday Mess Dinner
On Friday, 20 December, the Mess Committee is hosting the annual mess dinner. Cadets get to enjoy a traditional military-style mess dinner, complete with toasting and a hearty meal.

Please note that, because this is a training dinner, there will be no parade night on Thursday, 19 December.
