To begin the ceremony Cadet Patrick Lockhart read the origin and meaning behind the Navy Ball traditions and customs. Following his speech was Cadet Jeremy Geissemen announcing trophies and accomplishments made by cadets in the current year and Cadet Tyler Kissinger explained the importance of the P.O.W. table. After the prayer led by Cadet Dustin Frederick everybody was able to enjoy the outstanding dinner provided by the Elks Ledge and watch the cutting of the cake done by the youngest and oldest cadet currently enrolled in the program.
