We will be holding our annual fundraising event at Dover's Roma Italian Restaurant on Thursday, 17 February, from 5-9PM. The chapter is proud of this event as it helps to raise money for outstanding graduate students of the local JROTC high school programs in Kent County. There are multiple $1,500 scholarships and one $2,500 to help further the education of these students.
