Casco Marine memorialized with 11th 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 11th 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.  Annie Zelewske says Dean was always about helping children and the community. 



The softball tournament begins at 6:15 Thursday evening with the motorcycle ride on Sunday beginning with registration at 8:30 at the park in the morning.  All proceeds from the events benefit the Lance Corporal Dean Opicka Memorial Fund which has raised nearly $125,000 for local academic scholarships and local hardship gifts over the past ten years.
