Notice of Motion 2018-07-06: Rotary Club of Brighton support Brighton Cadets by donated $4,400 (2 x $2,200 for boy and girl) to participate in trip to Alberta in 2019,
R Clay explained the significance of the Albert trip in 2019. On June 6 each year members of the Canadian Airborne Regiment visit mount 'Ex coelis' in Alberta. The Regiment's motto is Ex coelis (from the clouds). At this site, they honor their comrades and spread ashes on the mountain of members who wish this on their death. The cadets will participate in this ceremony.
As cadets have to earn right to attend this trip, and work to raise funds for it, we are asked to not go public with this donation at this time.
Notice of Motion was voted on and passed.
Song - Frere Jacques (Are You Sleeping)
