The RCSCC Furious #80,  better known as the Drumheller Sea Cadets, were celebrating their 75th Annual Ceremonial Review (ACR) on Sunday at the Navy League building.

During the ACR, a ceremony was held for Elizabeth Mandel, as a change of command transferred all responsibilities to her as the new Commanding Officer of RCSCC Furious.

"I am really proud and honoured. I must admit, I got a little blurry eyed out there when they handed command over to me. It is a big honour and a large responsibility and I am sure I am going to do them proud," said Mundell.  "One of the largest things I am anticipating is the fact that everyone lives within the community now. I no longer have an officer driving from far out. We can have more meetings and get a lot of things accomplished in the organization aspect."

Mandel wasn't the only one excited about the night as many Cadets also received awards for their work in the past year.

"I am happy because I got promoted, everybody got their awards and we have a new Commanding Officer, of course. Everything was good today. I am very happy with the outcome," said Sea Cadet Liam Treller, who took home an award for attendance.

Many of the Sea Cadets in the program plan on staying with the organization as long as they can.

"Well I want to continue with the program, for sure, definitely until I age out and then start volunteering with the cadet corp. Making the most out of it, I guess." said Sea Cadet Katie Hanik.

The RCSCC Furious were also celebrating 100 years of Sea Cadets in Canada, as well as their 75th anniversary.
