Organizers of the Navy League Branch for Oceanside are hoping a few good men and women will step forward to take positions on their executive before their annual general meeting.

Although parents of cadets and veterans have traditionally taken on the positions on the board, organizers stress that any member of the community who is interested in the Navy League and Sea Cadet program is invited to attend, join the organization and let their name stand for one of the positions on the executive.

The AGM will be held at the Qualicum Beach Curling Rink from 2 to 4 p.m. on June 12.

Service is expected to resume on Wednesday, June 1.
