The Boys and Girls Varsity Double-Header vs Bremen on Friday, January 29th will be military appreciation night. Both the boys and girls teams will play in special camouflage uniforms that are provided by the Indiana National Guard. In addition, there will a special moment of silence and some words of reflection prior to the national anthem.
Patrons of both Jimtown and Bremen are encouraged to bring an item or two to donate for our deployed troops. The Michiana Blue-Star Mothers will be on hand to accept donations. Items donated will go directly to our troops in the form of care packages. The items are little things…little things that remind them of home and perhaps bring a smile to their face and the knowledge that someone is thinking of them and cares about what they are doing to protect our freedoms.
