Each Cadet Instructors Cadre CIC Badge Plate produced by Bonnie of Glass Treasures by Bonnie Saunders will certainly be cherished for generations to come.  As a thoughtful gift, they are an excellent method to commemorate a variety of occasions for one's loyalty and dedication.

• a retirement or transfer

• gifts for dignitaries

• special awards

• company promotions & recognitions

• a gift for a family member 

• an anniversary or birthday

• a personal memento/keepsake

• Change of Command

• Depart With Dignity

• return from duty

• paying tribute to a veteran


Each Cadet Instructors Cadre CIC Badge Plate begins as a clear glass plate which becomes transformed into an exceptional, high quality keepsake. With many complex steps from start to finish, the creation process poses a high degree of difficulty. The delicate procedures result in the brilliantly rich crackle which receives and illuminates light and provides a unique element of depth to each piece. These remarkable heirlooms are rendered individually by Bonnie, with all processes administered on the backside of the glass.

Each 8" plate is framed in a black, 11"open faced solid wood shadow box lined with red ultra suede. Two custom engraved black plaques which sit on the frame add a personalized touch to these mementos, which can be either wall mounted or displayed on a stand.  Included is a bilingual Certificate of Authenticity that is signed by Bonnie Saunders and applied to the backside of the frame.  This certificate contains a brief description of the mission of the proud members who wear the badge or crest that is featured on the front of the plate.  This is a great added feature for future generations to appreciate. 


Bonnie recommends highlighting the rank/regimental number and name of the recipient on the smaller plaque.  The second, larger engraved plaque provides an opportunity to include 3 additional sentences to better commemorate an occasion or words of choice.  This is very important, as it will pass on historical details for future generations.  There is a 60 character maximum for each sentence. Bonnie is happy to help you so the wording is perfect for the occasion.

"The cadet movement has been a big part of my life. I was a cadet as a teenager and loved it. Now I am giving back to cadets the experience I received. I was so happy to receive the CIC plate from my wife for my 50th birthday. I have admired them and wondered how good the quality was. Once I received it, I was very impressed with the workmanship and time put into the plates. No words can express how much I love my plate. There are a few more I would like to get and add to the start of my collection. Thank you so much Bonnie and also to my lovely wife, Diane!!!!!"

"June 3, 2014 was the 60th Annual Ceremonial Review of the Virden Army Cadets and my last one in uniform (AND the last one for Capt. Kelvon Smith as well). It was a great night and the kids looked awesome. We also had a super turn out of parents and supporters!! It is very nice to see this photo make the cover of the Virden Empire-Advance displaying the presentation in which Kelvon and I received beautiful plates featuring the CIC cap badge. These were presented to us both by the incoming CO, and the Sr Cadet of the XII Manitoba Dragoon Cadet Corps 2528 for our years of service. (L-R) Captain Smith, Officer Cadet Day, MWO Gibbert and Captain Tutthill.
Thank you Bonnie!"

"Hi Bonnie,
We here at # 2528 RCAC, XII Manitoba Dragoons wanted you to know how proud we were to present your plate to retiring staff member 2Lt Craig Russell. After 30 + years of service to the crown; first as an Army Cadet, then as a member of the CIC, what a beautiful fitting tribute to his years of service. On behalf of our Corps, thank you!"

"Bonnie, thanks for the fantastic plates! After 40 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces I retired on 13 February 2019 and was formally presented with these in honour of my service. Col Nishika Jardine, an old friend and fellow member of RCEME, presented the Corps plate, and LCol Gabriel Dore, Commanding Officer RCSU (Central), presented the CIL plate.

The senior staff of RCEME were highly impressed with the corps plate and are interested in looking to make this part of their routine retirement presentations. If you are interested I'll pass on your contact information to them."
