Dear parents and cadets: Welcome to all readers both current parents and cadets as well as browsers moving to Lakewood/ Ft Lewis.What a great Military Ball. We had 230 in attendance. The Lakes Jazz Band was phenomenal and the cadets conduct was noted as "Exceptional" by the club management and staff.Walk a Mile in Her Shoes was again a great experience. Lakes JROTC got to lead the processional carrying the banner! We turned in over $600. Hopefully it will be a lot more next year..JDRF and the Postal Workers Food Drive (support) is tomorrow (11 May). We are still looking to reschedule our rappelling that we were weathered out of. Parents: you are invited to Stadium high School on the evening of 14 May to watch the annual JROTC "Pass In Review" which takes place in the Stadium Bowl. It starts at 1900 hours (7PM) and ends at 8PM. We should be back at Lakes at 8:30PM.In preparation for the event we will have a small BBQ for those attending so that they get something to eat.Some of our cadets will help out with the CPSD "Track Stars" program on 12 June.
