The 540 Golden Hawks Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron is proud to announce their 60th Anniversary Celebration with a banquet and a ceremonial Annual Review Sunday May 27th! The Squadron Sponsoring Committee is looking for former squadron members who would like to join the squadron for this auspicious occasion. Former squadron members and their families are invited to participate, to share their memories, their memorabilia and pictures from their cadet experiences and to re-unite with friends.
Located in Oakville, the 540 Golden Hawks Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron has served the Oakville community’s youth for sixty years from 1951-2012. In recognition of this, a celebration will take place Sunday May 27th at the Oakville Conference Centre, 2515 Wyecroft Road at Bronte Road. A Ceremonial Annual Review at the Oakville Arena, 133 Rebecca Street, will precede the reception and banquet.
At the community level, 540 Squadron is sponsored by the Golden Hawks Squadron Sponsoring Committee, a not-for-profit organization of parent volunteers that support the Commanding Officer in the running of the squadron. Named after the world famous Golden Hawks precision flight team of the Canadian Air Force, 540 Golden Hawks Squadron has over 115 eager and talented cadets who meet weekly at T.A. Blakelock High School.
These young cadets are coached and supervised by officers of the Canadian Forces Reserve as they progress through the stages of increasing responsibilities and leadership. The cadets enjoy many activities including wilderness training, field exercises, band training, Remembrance Day parades, ground school, regional competitions and international exchanges. All activities encourage the cadets to become active, responsible members of the Oakville and World communities.
With diversity, structure and leadership by example as its greatest asset, membership in the Royal Canadian Air Cadets provides thousands of Canadian youth from ages 12 to 18 with unique opportunities to gain valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and public speaking. Along with the personal benefits of increased self confidence, discipline, initiative and decision making, many former cadets say that the Cadet Program gave them a head start in their successful careers.
An organization with a proud history, please join the 540 Golden Hawks Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron as they celebrate their accomplishments on May 27th at the 60th Anniversary Celebration. Let any former cadets you know of become aware of the celebrations and make the day a huge success.
