Area residents are invited to check out two graduation ceremonies from the Penhold Air Cadets Summer Training Centre before they head home.

The power and glider scholarship cadets will hold their graduation ceremony in Hangar 6 at Red Deer Airport on Thursday at 7 p.m. This is a “wings” parade where successful cadets will parade to receive their wings.

“This is always a very moving ceremony,” says spokesman Stan Monkman of the Air Cadet League of Canada.

The cadet camp will hold its final graduation parade of the year on Friday at 10 a.m.

About 900 cadets will be on parade on the drill square next to Hangar 6. Two large cadet bands will be on hand, plus a number of proud parents. The ceremony involves cadets from across Western Canada.
