Bataan Memorial Intermediate Elementary School announced the annual Bataan Day ceremony usually held in November has been postponed until Spring 2021. Each year, students and staff of Bataan Memorial Elementary School invite members of the community to their Bataan Day Ceremony. Due to COVID protocols, they have decided to schedule the program in May in hopes that everyone can gather.
The staff and students discussed possible alternatives, but ultimately decided this significant salute to Tank Company C should be postponed.
The Bataan Day Ceremony is held annually to honor 32 men from Port Clinton who participated in the Battle of Bataan and the Bataan Death March of World War II. The ceremony helps the students remember the history of their school name and realize the sacrifices made by these brave soldiers and others like them who fought and continue to fight for their country and our freedom.
