Dr. Paul Kavanagh, the founder of Operation Veteran, will be visiting Nipigon March 7-9. The Legion will be hosting a pot-luck supper on Friday, March 8 at 5:30 P.M. to honour Paul and his efforts with Operation Veteran. We also want to acknowledge the support he has given our local youth by inviting them to sing at the Operation Veteran program in Ottawa this past Remembrance Day.
He has now adopted the song “Freedom” (written by GONPS choir members) to close his program every year and has invited our youth to sing live again in Ottawa in 2020. The Legion will be reaffirming its support of Operation Veteran. Please come out and meet Paul and learn about this worthwhile program that supports Veterans and educates our youth.

ONONDAGA SEA CADETS MEET EVERY TUESDAY AND THURSDAY EVENINGS. OPEN TO YOUTH BETWEEN 12 YEARS OF AGE AND 19 YEARS OF AGE.
Royal Canadian Sea Cadets learn about the naval and maritime environment by participating in a variety of activities on and off the water.
Sea Cadets specialize in sailing, seamanship, shipboard life, naval communications, power boat handling, boat repair, and marine engineering. Selected senior cadets have the opportunity to attend international exchanges, to sail aboard a Tall Ship or participate in ship deployments aboard Canadian Navy and Coast Guard ships. Additionally, Sea Cadets can compete for a chance to participate in annual sailing regattas!
Sea Cadets also participate in ceremonial events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian naval heritage.
The hands-on activities, exciting challenges and leadership opportunities for Sea Cadets are many. Canada’s motto, A Mari usque ad Mare (“From Sea to Sea“) can be applied to Sea Cadets. With Sea Cadet Corps found all across the country and given Canada’s abundance of water and shoreline, the opportunities are many whether inland or on either coast .You are bound to observe a Sea Cadet making a splash somewhere, from sea to sea!
Sea Cadets participate in…
- Nautical activities
- Naval communications
- Team sports
- Shipboard life
- Tall Ship training
