Casco Marine memorialized with 10th annual softball tournament

As Memorial Day ceremonies were celebrated throughout Door and Kewaunee Counties Monday morning, a 1997 graduate of Luxemburg-Casco High School will be memorialized this coming weekend.  The 10th annual Lance Corporal Dean Opicka Softball Tournament will be held at the Casco Village Park from Thursday through Sunday.  Opicka served in the Marines and Operation Iraqi Freedom and was one of three L-C graduates who died in the Iraq War.  Dennis Opicka says the softball tournament and motorcycle ride on Saturday is a perfect way to remember his brother.  



The softball tournament begins at 6:15 Thursday evening with the motorcycle ride on Saturday beginning at 11 in the morning.  All proceeds from the events benefit the Lance Corporal Dean Opicka Memorial Fund that supports local academic scholarships and local hardship gifts.  Over $100,000 has been raised in the last ten years.
