As the semester comes to a close, lets reflect on a few of the memories we've made on the way towards the finish line!
Every year Det 290 concludes our school year with Dining Out. Dining Out is a formal dinner where our cadet and distinguished quests invite their dates to enjoy good food, celebrate cadets' achievements, and say fair well to our commissioning cadets.
