   I hope the new year is going great for everyone. I am proud of the motivation and dedication of the cadets that participated at the Pasadena Drill Meet. We also have the Color Guard team going to the Regional Meet at College Park High School on March 23rd. We are half way through the practices for the Friends of Down Syndrome Cinderella Ball which is also going on March 23. The cadet staff has established the dates for the Midshipmen Challenge Day (Apr 13th), the Spring trip (Apr 27th), and the Awards Ceremony (May 15th). Before you know it we will be taking a group of cadets to support Graduation on June 1st and saying goodbye to the Class of 2019.
  
   We are now on Version 12 of the Events Schedule and it has been added to the right.
