We once again have the honor of assisting the parents of Cpl Christopher G. Scherer USMC in remembering their fallen hero as well as help raise a little money for the “Cpl Christopher G. Scherer Scholarship” and the “Cpl Christopher G. Scherer, Leave No Marine Behind Project”.
The “Cpl Christopher G. Scherer Scholarship” will award three scholarships each year to Northport High School Seniors. One member of varsity boy’s lacrosse, one member of varsity girl’s lacrosse, and one member of the graduating senior class will be eligible for the awards.
The “Leave No Marine Behind Project” will support our troops in Iraq. Money contributed will buy socks, underwear, and any other supplies requested by Chris’ fellow marines of the 1st Combat Engineer Battalion. These supplies will be sent to the 1st Combat Engineer Battalion Headquarters, located at Camp Pendleton, CA. From there they will be distributed to Chris’ fellow marines. We will also be sending care packages directly to individual Marines to show them how much we appreciate their service to our country. Our mission is to make one minute of one day just a little bit better for a Marine who is stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan .
