On 27 Feb 2020 RCSCC Quinte said farewell to one of it's own.
Chief Petty Officer 1st Class Malcolm Ross turned in his uniform. CPO1 Ross has been with the corps from 14 Mar 2013. We would like to thank him for his service to the corps and we look forward to having him as a civilian volunteer in the future.
BZ CPO1 Ross.
We wish you fair winds and following seas.
SLt Lisa Bresset had a cooking class on March 5. The lesson was how to prepare potatoes. They mashed, roasted and fried them. They were tasty. Job well done to the cadets who participated.
On Jan 23, at the sunset ceremony, the XO had the opportunity to give out a couple promotions.

ASLt Matthew Taylor has been running a shipwright workshop this season. The cadets that have come out have finished up their first project. This included learning about refinishing the wood paddles. The cadets learned about sanding, painting, and varnishing. They also are learning proper use of tools including the correct safety equipment needed for the projects.
The cadets have started the second project which looks like they are refinishing metal chairs.
Well done cadets and a big thank you ASLt. Taylor for your patience and guidance for these projects.
Since 1928, We're always very proud to partner with community efforts, helping to make the greater Belleville and Quinte area a better, safer place.
In support of the local Children's Safety Village, our cadets were happy to assist with the Inaugural "Kid's Got Talent" charitable benefit, assisting and seating patrons at the Empire Theatre on February 8th.
The Children's Safety Village was established in 2004 to teach primary grades traffic and pedestrian safety. The village is an interactive memorable experience complete with traffic lights, signs, markings and a working railway crossing, thereby teaching awareness and responsibility.
On Friday Feb 7, SLt Colwill and CPO 2 Coupland spent a few hours clearing off the snow behind the ship (just to have the city show up on Saturday morning) so that the cadets could have a clear patch to skate on.
Looks like fun was had by all.
January 4 2020 was the annual bottle drive for our cadets. A little snow did not stop our cadets from showing up and working hard. With the help of the cadets and the volunteers who came out to help the day went well.
A big thank you to all that came out to help with the bottle drive.
On December 19 our cadet band preformed at their Christmas concert. The friends and family of our cadets enjoyed the concert. The concert was an enjoyable way to end the year before the holiday stand down.
