The week before Remembrance Day, members of the 131 Kootenay, Royal Canadian Sea Cadets were hard at work on the Trail Cenotaph planting tulip bulbs.

“Helping the community is an important part of the cadet program and we are happy to help anyway we can” -Sub Lieutenant David Cherrington

The cadets, working with Communities in Bloom, planted red and white tulip bulbs.  These tulips will bloom around the Cenotaph with the colours of Canada’s Flag during the Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Canadian Confederation.

“This going to look great in the spring” -PO2 Naomi Savage

131 Kootenay meets every Tuesday evening at the Trail Armories and is always welcoming new cadets and adult volunteers.
