Phone Tree: Please make certain that a more senior cadet is telephoning you every week.  There is valuable information that you should be receiving.  As part of the program, you need to learn to advocate for yourself and the only way to do this is to have contact information for cadets who are in your chain of command.  It is their responsibility to provide you with the information that you require (or know who to ask to obtain the info).  AND it is your responsibility to make sure that you have both telephone and email information for the seniors in your amazing flights to ask these important questions!


RCSU Thank-you Video: 102 Squadron, we need you! And we need as much representation as possible, so that means everyone! From all the level ones to every officer. We want to send a huge thank you to the Regional Cadet Support Unit (RCSU) for all their hard work behind the scenes and the very difficult decisions they are making to keep us safe.

Here’s what you need to do!

Send in a video no longer than 5 seconds of what you are doing to keep busy that is cadet related.

  • Polishing boots
  • Practicing your band instruments
  • Working out
  • Making a paper airplane
  • You on a Zoom call

Even looking up to the camera and smiling while washing your hands is a great idea! 

Beware, this video can go two ways:

  • Our video is so boring that no one watches it because not everyone contributed by sending a video that will take less than 5 minutes to film and send.
  • Our video knocks it out of the park because everyone participated, sent in awesome videos and had fun making it!

Send your videos to the email assigned to your flight:

Flight one – Itaymo7@gmail.com

Flight two – Austin.teas@tdsb.on.ca

Flight three -takieran14@gmail.com

Flight four – erica.firouzbehi@gmail.com

Flight five – eriklucasg@gmail.com

Band – owalga@bell.net

Officers, admin, warrants, or if you don’t remember: Erica.firouzbehi@gmail.com


Fitness Challenge Step Tracker: To go along with our awesome fitness videos from FCpl Mena, you can get a copy of a step tracking sheet here. 


Cook/Bake Off: Do you like to cook or bake? Or maybe you want to try something new? We are pleased to present the very first 102 Squadron Erb and Spice Cook/Bake off.

There is a chance to win one of two $50.00 gift certificates to a local restaurant, to be awarded to the top two master chefs. 

Interested cadets/staff must submit an extremely creative video no longer than 10 minutes by Sunday, May 3rd at noon.  We want to see your best cookie or your best pasta dish!  Remember videos must be creative and entertaining!  

We also want to start a 102 Squadron Cookbook that we will produce and be able to sell for a great fundraising idea.  So you must also submit the recipe!

Please submit video’s and recipe thru google drive to FCpl Erb at  andr1910@scdsb.on.ca 


Letters to Seniors in Quarantine: Hello cadets, there is an opportunity to connect with some seniors in our community who reside at Chartwell Barrington retirement residence:

The residents who live at Chartwell Barrington would really benefit from hearing from the youth in the community.  Chartwell Barrington is not allowing visitors to come into the building due to the spread of COVID – 19, this measure is to ensure the safety of our elderly population.  As you can imagine this is a very lonely time for our elderly population and they would really benefit from our cadets reaching out and sharing everyday experiences with them.

Would you please consider once per week writing a letter to a resident at Chartwell Barrington?  They would absolutely love to hear from you. Tell them some jokes. Tell them what you are doing at home to stay happy and healthy, tell them what you are learning in school or what you are doing in Air Cadets.  There is a lot you could write about.

Mrs. Squires, who is a part of the SSC and works at the Chartwell Barrington retirement residence has agreed to receive these ’emailed letters’ and disperse them to seniors there.

Please consider the smiles and encouragement this would bring to a resident and how much joy they would receive from this.  If you are interested please email FCpl Mena E. at mena.eac13@gmail.com with your interest. When we know how many cadets are willing to do this, Mrs. Squires will provide us with the name of a resident to write to.


Quarantine Opportunity to Help Our Local Community: The Barrie Food Bank strives to help our community and given the status of COVID-19, they will see an increased demand in their services over the next few months. Although they are not accepting food donations at this time, we can still help! 

A local photographer, Courtney Guest, is following #thefrontstepsproject by offering to photograph family portraits on your doorstep. She uses a zoom lens so that she can stay curbside (keeping that 6ft distance). If you’re in a condo/apartment, she can do balcony or front entrance shots too. 

Please show us your pride and represent 102 by wearing your uniform. Your family can wear whatever they’d like, formal, casual or that pyjama quarantine attire! This will only take 15 minutes of your time. The dates and times are located on the signup (Link Below).

In exchange for this photography session, we ask that you give a monetary donation to the Barrie Food Bank. Two ways to donate: 

1) Send an eTransfer to marie@barriefoodbank.org 

Enter the security question as: Who rocks the base?

Enter the security answer as: 102aircadets

OR 

2) Pay by credit card and go to: 

https://www.barriefoodbank.org/product/onetime-donation/

Use the message field to identify yourself as a 102 Air Cadets

That way, the Barrie Food Bank will track how much we can raise for them as a squadron. Once you receive the photos from the photographer, feel free to share on the 102 Facebook Page. If you and your family are interested in participating Please Sign Up Here!

This is strictly voluntary. You are welcome to donate to the food bank without participating in the photos as well.
