It's almost fitting that St. John's Northwest Military Academy's 125th anniversary falls today, Sept. 11, on the anniversary of one of America's most important and unforgettable moments. In honor of both, the academy is hosting two days of events, including these highlights:
- Hartland Community Band concert: 7 to 8 p.m. Friday.
- Parade through downtown Delafield: 9 to 10 a.m. Saturday
- Picnic: 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
- Football game against Heritage Christian: 2 p.m. Saturday.
