            The Semaphore Team for the Fenelon Falls NLCC (Navy League Cadet Corps) Adanac returned as triumphant Ontario champions recently from the Navy League Provincial Competitions at NLCC Cataraqui in Kingston.

            In its first regional or provincial competition in

six years, NLCC Adanac went up against five regional winning teams from around the province.

            Semaphore is a system of sending messages by holding two flags in different positions signifying alphabet letters. Each team is given a message for two members of the team to send to another two members. Scoring is based on accuracy and speed as the teams must send and receive more than 100 letters in only 15 minutes.

            The Navy League Cadet Corps program uses a naval theme as a platform with young people to develop patriotism, good citizenship, a sense of duty, self-discipline and respect for others. It is open to youth aged 9-12 years, at no cost.

            For more information about NLCC Adanac, call Lieutenant Richard Wackernagel at (705) 886-0051.
