Tag Days (pre-COVID) were part of-person fundraising activities for the Navy League of Canada Ottawa Branch (NLOB). As a result of COVID Tag Days have been put on hold for the foreseeable future. The NLOB supports NLCC Vice Admiral Kingsmill's training program in a wide range of ways including, but not limited to, uniforms, recreational and educational trips, equipment for training, and the purchase of awards to recognize Kingsmill cadets' achievements. The Navy League of Canada Ontario Division has partnered with "Micharity" to organize a structured process to collect and distribute donations to the Branch of your choice and send charitable receipts immediately. Please consider making an online donation to our sponsoring Branch (NLOB) in support of cadet activities in our community. To donate to the NLOB, the NLOB has set up a link on their home page at www.ottawanavyleague.org, or the link can be directly accessed by clicking HERE. Donations using this link will be forwarded from the Ontario Division to the Ottawa Branch. However, please include a dedication on the form to the "Ottawa Branch" with the subject "Donation" to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help the NLOB monitor it locally. Your generous donations will have a huge impact on helping us deliver a youth program that is second to none and help young Canadians develop into our leaders of tomorrow. Thank you!
Private Kingsmill Facebook Group:
A private Facebook group has been created to provide a further means of reaching out and disseminating information to cadets and parents in this period of isolation. Activities for cadets will be posted on the Group page. Joining the private Facebook group is optional and not mandatory. All information regarding training etc. will continue to be disseminated through the Kingsmill Newsletter and website. If you wish to join the private group search on Facebook under "Groups" using "NLCC Vice Admiral Kingsmill". You will see two groups - our Group is the private group.
