MCJROTC Participate in Memorial Day Ceremonies
The cadets of the Michigan City High School (MCHS) Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (MCJROTC) supported the true meaning of this day by marching in the Michigan City Memorial Day parade and participating in the ceremony at Greenwood Cemetery. Earlier, they had assisted veterans groups in placing flags on all of the veteran graves in the Greenwood cemetery. They had also supported veteran’s motorcycle groups in their ceremony at the Medal of Honor recipient Danny Bruce memorial ceremony at Washington Park prior to their trip to Washington, DC, for ceremonies there. In addition to the Memorial Day parade and ceremony, the cadets also participated in other community service events. Among those events were festivities at Pine and Lake Hills elementary schools, Baker Middle School, the Veterans of Foreign Wars poppy sale, and the dedication of the Richardson Nature Preserve in LaPorte. The MCJROTC will be conducting their summer leadership camp at St. John’s Northwestern Military Camp in Delafield, WI from June 3-7. Upon returning, they will support the MCHS graduation on June 9th, the Michigan City Kiddie parade on June 22nd, the Michigan City Summer Festival Parade on June 29th, and the LaPorte Independence Day Parade on July 4th.
