James River High School is having a Military Appreciation Night tonight at the Swamp (JR's football stadium). The Rapids are hosting #1 LC Bird with kickoff at 7:30pm.
Veterans and active military are admitted free, will receive a snack from the concession stand and are honored in a pre-game ceremony. Vets and active military should arrive by 7:00pm for the recognition ceremony.
Also, James River's NJROTC kicks off it's Fisher House fundraising campaign. Last year thje group donated over $1200 to Fisher House and they are hoping to grow that amount.
Please consider supporting this great cause!!!!
