Air Cadets grateful for support

Sir: On behalf of 44 Sarnia Imperial Air Cadets we would like to thank local businesses that allowed cadets to stand at their doors, and the community of Sarnia for its support on our recent ‘tagging” weekend.

The cadet experience is provided at no cost, but it isn’t free. Your continued financial support makes 44 Squadron possible by paying for musical instruments and band equipment, special achievement awards, flying time and fuel, and field trips that deliver amazing learning opportunities.

Your contribution to the cadets program makes a lasting impression … a real difference. Thank-you for your generosity.

Our parade nights are Tuesdays. Please feel free to visit us and see what being an air cadet is all about. We are always welcoming youth between the ages of 12-18. You can also visit our website at www.44air.org.

Thank you, Sarnia.

MS Society says thanks

Sir: The Sarnia Lambton Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada held it’s annual Carnation Campaign on May 8-9. The proceeds of these sales help us to achieve our chapter’s mission, which is to provide funding to further research into MS and to assist those affected by MS.

On behalf of the Sarnia Lambton Chapter we extend our heartfelt thanks to all the people in the area who supported our campaign by purchasing carnations. We also want to thank all of the volunteers who worked so hard on the campaign and all the businesses, agencies and organizations that helped out.

Multiple Sclerosis is the most common disease of the central nervous system affecting young adults aged 15 to 40, and can affect children as young as two.

About 100,000 Canadians have been diagnosed with MS and each day three more people receive a positive diagnosis. Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world and women are three times more likely to develop MS than men.

There is no known cause or cure as yet so research is critical.

Your help and support of this campaign helps to bring us closer to finding a cure and helps to provide the much needed support and services for those living with MS in our community. Sincerely,

Dave LeClair, Chairperson

The Carnation Campaign Committee

Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada

Sarnia/Lambton Chapter
