Action Alert – Sullivans Division Sea Cadet Newsletter – July 2018

From The Desk Of The CO

Cadets, as you read this a group of your fellow shipmates are returning from Boot Camp! Make sure when you see them at July drill you congratulate them as I am sure they did a wonderful job representing the Sullivans Division.

Many of you are preparing to go on your training’s in July. Make sure everything is handed in and you get your training paid to secure your spot. If you are going to Buffalo Training please hand in paperwork and payment at Saturday drill if you have not done so. If you are coming back from RT DO NOT FORGET YOUR RECORD JACKET!!!!

There are still training’s open all over, remember you must do at least one training per year! Qualified Cadets who do not attend training reflect poorly on our inspection.

Also keep in the loop of events, drill dates etc. by using Remind!

Just text @Sullivansd to 81010

Please note as of 01 Jan 18 Dues are now $125 per year.
