Mark your calendars for the Massing of the Colors program that will be held on Friday, January 18 at noon in the Sahuarita Unified School District Auditorium, 350 W. Sahuarita Rd. This year’s event will be co-sponsored by the Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) and the Naval JROTC from Sahuarita High School.
The ceremony will usher in the 2019 Martin Luther King observance weekend in remembrance of just how far we have come as a nation. Each year the MOWW gathers to celebrate military service and service to the local community and renews a standing commitment to the development of America’s youth.
This free event salutes not only currently serving, former and retired members of the military, but also police officers, fire fighters and others who work around the clock to keep us safe to enjoy the quality of life that we as Americans often take for granted.
