Get the whole enchilada Friday

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

The Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) has a busy schedule of drills, camps, air rifle competitions on top of the regular classes and the community’s support is needed to follow this agenda.

As a result, the NJROTC is hosting an enchilada dinner from 5-8 p.m. Friday at the Los Alamos High School cafeteria.

The menu includes red chile and green chile chicken enchiladas, Mexican rice, pinto beans, homemade carrot cake and brownies, and beverages.

“The food is going to be great,” Gunnery Sgt. Brett Painter said.

The students in the NJROTC can vouch for that because they are the ones who are cooking the meal.

Everyday this week, the students are heading down to the cafeteria to spend some time in the kitchen.

In addition to cooking the food, students are also looking for donations to include in the event’s silent auction.

Students take an active role in the fundraiser because “they feel like they are contributing to the overall program and it gets them involved,” Lt.Cmdr. Wes Shumaker said

The dinner is a tradition for the NJROTC. “It’s been in existence before I got here,” Shumaker said. “It’s been a long-standing tradition ee to host the dinner.”

The proceeds from the dinner will benefit numerous NJROTC programs.
