Approx 1/2 mile of overgrown firebreak was cleared and about 1/4 acre of sorghum cane for the mill to be used in their historic display this weekend.

On Saturday, September 28, 2019, the MCJROTC Cadets worked tirelessly for 12 hours straight in 90 degree weather to support “The Original Mud Run” in Franklin TN. This event raised money for several Veteran charities. After a 12 hour work day in the blistering heat, these Cadets were still motivated and jumped on the 5K obstacle course themselves. We completed the entire course as a team in about 1.5 hours. Most of these Cadets were volunteers 2 days prior at Cedars of Lebanon where they conducted park clean up until 8pm. We are proud of these YOUNG WARRIORS!
