On August 6-8 2010 the Driftpile Cadets took their end of year trip to Callaway Park in Calgary. The 10 youth were chosen based on their attendance and participation over the year.
Update May 2010
On April 20, 2010 the RCMP Foundation presented a cheque in the amount of $4000.00 dollars to the Driftpile Community Police Cadet Program. The Driftpile Community Cadet Program is open to all youth ages 7 – 17. The program, with the support of the RCMP and Lakeshore Police Service has been running in Driftpile since September 2009. The youth in the program meet once per week at the Community Hall, to learn about marching, respect, self-discipline and most importantly, to have fun! To date the youth have raised over $800.00 on their own, to cover the cost of their Cadet t-shirts. With the additional support from the RCMP we are now able to continue to support the youth and the program.
The RCMP Foundation was created in 1994 to support community initiatives in which local RCMP members are involved. The Members volunteer their time and energy in the community to get these projects up and running.
The RCMP Foundation manages the RCMP licensing program, operates 2 retail stores in Ottawa one in Chilliwack BC in addition to an online store (www.themountieshop.ca), holds events and engages the involvement of corporate Canada in its activities. Funds raised are used to support sports teams and events, drug awareness, youth programs and self-help programs, victim services and internet safety, all for benefit of Canada’s youth at risk.
