LITTLE CASEAR'S PIZZA FUNDRAISER DUE 19 OCT 2017!!

This is a great little fundraiser that will help cover costs for activities that are not supported by the Department of National Defence.  These activities include our Solo FTX Prep, Solo FTX, Christmas Dinner, Scuba, etc, just to name a few.  Many hands make light work, so the more participation we have from all cadets, the more successful we will be!  We were able to fundraise about $500 last year (by selling about $2000 worth of product).  Let's beat that total and see if we can make it to $1000 profit!!  

Orders will be ready for pick-up on 26 Oct 2017.  

Please share this post with as many friends and family as possible!
