On the 14th of December 2012, 62 (2nd Glasgow) squadron hosted its last major event of the year; the annual squadron dinner dance. Cadets, staff and several guests who have previously been involved with the squadron in the past were all welcomed at the event which was being hosted in the main hall of the TA centre in Crow Road which had been converted into a formal dining room. The guests all arrived at around 7 o’clock looking their smartest and best, and had a chance to catch up and socialise. At around 8 o’clock, all the guests took their seats and soon afterwards dinner was served. Once the dinner was finished, several speeches were made to the squadron where we reflected back on our achievements of 2012 and on how the squadron is growing and improving thanks to all of the hard work being put in by the staff and cadets. This moment also gave us an opportunity to think of the future and what 2013 will bring to the squadron and hope that we can do as well next year if not better than we have this year. The rest of the night allowed all the staff and cadets to have some fun as the tables and furniture was moved out of the way and a disco was set up. With plenty of space and plenty of dancing talent present, it gave everyone a chance to enjoy themselves and was a fitting end to what has been a brilliant year.
