Polaris Battalion hosts Sept. 30 breakfast

The USNSCC Polaris Battalion will serve an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet on Sunday, Sept. 30, at American Legion Post 225 in Forest Lake from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $4 for children ages 8 to 10.  Children 7 and under eat free.

Proceeds of this fundraiser will support Polaris Battalion youth by purchasing uniforms and equipment, and by allowing the unit to try new experiences they wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to try.

The USNSCC Polaris Battalion is a unit of the United States Naval Sea Cadet Corps.

Polaris Battalion is open to youth ages 11 to 17 years.

The youth learn leadership skills and naval history.  They have the chance to participate in trainings including leadership, medic, and marksmanship.

They can also participate in trainings held on board Navy or Coast Guard ships.

For questions about the program, contact Dawn van Hees at 763-229-8450.
