Cadets sell donuts looking to start North Thompson Unit

A number of Royal Canadian Army Cadets were spotted in Barriere last Saturday fundraising by selling Krispy Kreme donuts in front of Interior Savings and the post office.

The cadets quickly did a booming business and sold out of the yummy donuts in record time.

The Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corp are in the process of opening a cadet unit in the North Thompson area.

They currently have nine cadets between Clearwater and Barriere, with four to six traveling to Kamloops every week.

However, if there is enough interested youth within this area there is a strong possibility that a cadet unit can be opened locally and the trip to Kamloops on a weekly basis would no longer be necessary.

If you are a youth between the ages of 12 to 18 years and are interested in either the Kamloops unit, or the possible North Thompson unit, you are encouraged to contact Lt. Marc Tremblay 2305 RCACC, at 778-220-9194, or by emailing him at: 2305RCACC@gmail.com.
