On April 6, 2004, Oak Ridge resident Second Lieutenant John Thomas (J.T.) Wroblewski succumbed to injuries sustained while battling in Ramadi, Iraq. J.T. was a lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps. He joined the Marines only days after the 9-11 attacks, determined to make a difference. He left behind his mom, dad, three younger brothers, his widow and many additional family members and friends.
The Junior Woman’s Club of Jefferson Township is donating the proceeds from this Wrobo Run to the following:
Jefferson Township Teen Scene:
The mission of the Jefferson Teen Scene in conjunction with the Recreation Department is to provide positive opportunities for resident teens ranging from 6th-9th grades. The aim of the Teen Scene is to provide teens a place where they can gather with one another in a safe and supervised environment. The themed activities, programs and special events take place at Camp Jefferson and/or other designated sites in town. JTTS offers these young adults opportunities to foster positive experiences and strengthen social bonds in a clean, drug-free environment where they can relax, take advantage of the activities/programs, and be themselves. 20% of the proceeds will go to our high school scholarship award, an award that honors graduating students from Jefferson Township High School who have displayed an extraordinary level of civic dedication via volunteer efforts throughout their lives, along with exceptional academic achievement.
