11 Feb 2017 - Dixie High AFJROTC Military Ball

The highly anticipated AFJROTC Military Ball happens on 11 Feb 2017!

The meal choices are Swiss steak, chicken cordon bleu, and, for the first time this year, we have a vegetarian option.  Price is $30/plate. (It is NOT a fundraiser – that’s just our cost.)  We have a professional photographer available (bring $15-$25 extra to get portraits), a professional DJ to provide dance music, and a wonderful guest speaker.

We thank you for your support.  If we don't get at least 200 people there next Saturday night, it turns into a financial burden.  That's never happened, but ya'll make me nervous by buying your tickets last minute.  :)

You can pay in person at the Dixie High Finance Office before 3 p.m. on weekdays, or online anytime - see instructions at the webpage for Dixie High JROTC.

Please plan to come!  We’d LOVE to have any and all Veterans join us!  Thanks!  Col. Glenn Whicker.
