The Kincardine Air Cadets welcome 2nd Lieutenant Stephanie Rutledge as their new commanding officer

A good crowd of Cadets and parents gathered Tuesday night (Sept. 13) at the Royal Canadian Legion in Kincardine, to wish 2nd Lieutenant Bob Grey well as he handed over the command of the 183 Typhoon Squadron to the new commanding officer, 2nd Lieutenant Stephanie Rutledge.

Grey has served as commanding officer of the Air Cadets for the past year after almost 20 years with the squadron.

He will continue with the Air Cadets in a volunteer capacity and will act as the administrative officer.

Major G. Mathers, the Regional Cadet Advisor from London, was on hand to witness the Change of Command.

Rutledge is excited about the coming year of activities and events for the group.

There are 24 Cadets in the squadron, with potentially a dozen more, she says. Anyone interested in learning more about Cadets and possibly joining up, can come to the Legion Monday nights at 6:30 p.m., and check it out.

Coming up are the Fall Exercises at the end of September, and Gliding in October.

A barbecue welcoming everyone back to Cadets, was held Monday night (Sept. 12) at the Legion.
