WORTHINGTON — The Buffalo Ridge Leathernecks Marine Corps Detachment will celebrate the 247th anniversary of the formation of the U.S. Marine Corps during a special event Nov. 12, at the Brewster American Legion. The celebration will begin with a 5 p.m. social and 6 p.m. ceremony and meal.

Three individuals were sentenced recently in Nobles County Fifth District Courts in cases previously reported on by The Globe.
Welcome Corps is geared to fast-track refugees, many of whom have waited years to be resettled. The goal is to welcome 5,000 refugees to the U.S. this year, the first to arrive as early as April.
Incidents reported the evening of Jan. 31 through the evening on Feb. 3.

Buffalo Ridge Leathernecks Commandant Gary Stewart said Sgt. Stephen Pederson of Rapid City, South Dakota, will be the guest speaker. Pederson is a Vietnam veteran and will talk about his experience in Vietnam, and what he’s done since he left the service.

“He’s done a lot of different things for veterans,” Stewart shared.

The evening will include a memorial to fallen comrades, recognition of past battles, introduction of members of the local detachment, presentation of the colors by Buffalo Ridge Young Marines, and an awards ceremony to include recognition of the Marine of the Year and commendations to other honorable members.

A birthday cake ceremony is a tradition of the event, with the oldest and youngest Marine present to share in a slice of birthday cake. A birthday message will be given by the Marine Corps Commandant, and the Marine Corps hymn will be sung during the evening.


The dinner will feature a choice of smoked prime rib, smoked pork loin or chicken, and entertainment is by Roger Peterson and Dwight York as the RoJo Comedy Club.

The program provides funding to help processors add value to Minnesota agricultural products by investing in production capacity, market diversification and market access for value-added products.
The application deadline is March 6.

Stewart said raffle tickets will be available for purchase during the event, with 20 one-of-a-kind firearms to be raffled, as well as a hand-forged knife made by Dr. Jerry Johnson of Worthington.

All are welcome to attend the celebration, Stewart said, adding that attendees need not be veterans. Tickets are available for purchase by contacting Stewart at (507) 360-3171, or by stopping at Pawn-It in Worthington and speaking with Vance Johanning.

The Nov. 12 event is made possible thanks to a dozen sponsors, Stewart said.

For those who would like to attend the comedy portion of the evening, Stewart said they will open the doors at 8 p.m. and charge a cover fee for those individuals.
