Turlock High School’s Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) program will host its 2nd Annual Military Veterans Ball. The dinner will honor veterans from Stanislaus County from every branch of the military.

The NJROTC is a cadet-run program that is funded by the United States Navy. It dedicates its time to teaching high school students the importance of leadership, teamwork, and citizenship in military and nonmilitary operations. It is taught by instructors who are retired Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard officers, as well as enlisted personnel.

The Military Veterans Ball will be held on Nov. 7, at 5 p.m., in the Turlock War Memorial, located at 247 East Canal Drive. A silent auction will be held during the first hour, with the opening ceremony and dinner beginning at 6 p.m. Following dinner will be a dance, starting at 8 p.m.

“The program hosting the ball is great,” said Major Kelly Cross, an instructor in Turlock High’s NJROTC program. “It’s not a fundraiser, but a great way for us to honor and pay respects to our veterans in the community.”

One of the most important events during the Military Veterans Ball is the cake cutting ceremony taking place.

“The cake cutting ceremony is big,” Major Cross said. “We have a cake for each branch of military. We have it set to be an old veteran and a younger one. That way, it is like the old feeding the new and the new feeding the old.”

Tickets are available for $35 each or a 10-seat table can be purchased for $300. If a table is purchased, it would include two seats for NJROTC cadets who cannot afford a ticket. World War II Veterans are free.

Attendees are asked to wear semi-formal attire or military dress uniforms.

For more information, to purchase tickets, or reserve a table, contact Major Kelly D Cross at kcross@turlock.k12.ca.us or Lt. Cmdr. Carlos Montanez at cmontanez@turlockk12.ca.us.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
