SPAGHETTI FEAST FUNDRAISER TO BE HELD

            MARQUETTE – The Northern Michigan University Army ROTC Ranger Club will be hosting an all-you-can-eat spaghetti feast from 4:30-7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, at the Richard M. Jopling American Legion Post #44 at 700 W. Bluff St.

            The feast is a fundraiser to support participation in the Bataan Memorial Death March this spring. This marathon-length march in New Mexico is dedicated to the more than 10,000 Americans and Filipinos that were forced to march with no food and water in blistering heat for 5 days from morning until late at night during World War II. Most of them lost their lives during the march or later in the Japanese prisoner of war camps.

            Donations for the meal are $5 for adults, $2.50 for children ages 5-12 and there is no charge for children under 5. Takeouts will be available. For more information or to obtain advance tickets, email military@nmu.edu or call 906-227-2236.
