Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron 20 Freedom Fighter parades Tuesday nights at the Gravelbourg Lions Den from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The squadron will be celebrating their 80th year this year, having been founded in Assiniboia in 1941. The squadron was relocated to Gravelbourg a number of years ago. They currently have 20 cadets from Coronach, Assiniboia, Kincaid, Android, Lafleche, Gravelbourg and Shamrock.
The 2020/21 proved to be a complicated training year as the squadron were unable to meet in person and have to provide all our training with online platforms. Most of the cadet program is a hands-on approach involving drill, survival skills, Aviation knowledge, navigation, airport operations, fitness, general military knowledge and personal care. So online training was a challenge to say the least. However, the cadets completed well and we look forward to in-person training in September 2021.
