On the heels of their recent Regional Competition wins, the North Bay Navy League Corps represented Aurora Squadron (Northern Ontario Region) last weekend at the Ontario Division Provincial Competition. The drill team finished top seven, while the first aid team placed third.
The corps Commanding Officer, Sub Lieutenant (NL) Richard Doucette stated that “This is the first time North Bay has taken home medals from Provincials in quite a while. I am proud of the cadets and the volunteer coaches and parents who allowed these kids to compete at such a high level.”
This free program meets weekly, September through June and the objectives of “The Navy League Cadet Corps" are to give young girls and boys (aged between 9 and 12) the opportunity to develop good mental, moral and physical training, to develop patriotism, good citizenship, a sense of duty, discipline, self-respect, and to respect others, in a Naval environment suited for young people.
There are 34 corps in Ontario.
