What would spring be without a cadet fundraiser–Covid has severely limited our fundraising abilities. Even though we are not conducting in person training we are still training virtually.
We have an online fundraiser to help with virtual training tools and future in-class training supplies and uniforms.
Today, we launch our fundraising through Plantables.ca where you can go online and purchase herbs and vegetables. You will receive 4” potted plants ready for you to plant in your garden when the spring weather arrives!
