Nelson city councillor Michael Dailly visited with local sea cadets this month during their annual ceremonial review.

Nelson Sea Cadets hold annual review

The ceremony included an inspection, march past, speeches, awards and the advance.

The Nelson Sea Cadets recently held their annual ceremonial review at Lakeside Park. This year they had the honour of Nelson city councillor Michael Dailly as their reviewing officer.

The event started with the arrival of the reviewing party from the Prestige to Lakeside Park by way of the Nelson tram. The ceremony then proceeded with an inspection, march past, speeches, awards and the advance.

Honoured guests in attendance were Dave Smith from BC Hydro, Nelson fire chief Len MacCharles and John Bowles of the Nelson Lions Club.

A number of awards were given out, including the Legion Medal of Excellence presented by the Nelson Legion to Kaden Ellis, chief petty officer second class; the Lord Strathcona Medal presented by Michael Dailly to Katelyn Ellis, chief petty officer second class; also a number of service medals were presented by Denise Robson, the BC Mainland Navy League representative, for four years of service to Katelyn Ellis; Dasha Russell, Sebastian Bodine, and Tanner Pearson.

Kenneth and Kaden Ellis also received their six years of service bars.

The cadets also received long-sleeve shirts for their year-end gift from the Nelson Navy League Branch. The cadets presented their parents with a token of thanks by way of carnations purchased by the Nelson Navy Leagion.

The staff and cadets thank everyone who supported them over the year and all those who helped make the annual review a huge success.
