Hanging of the Greens is Hargrave’s annual Christmas program and serves as the unofficial conclusion to the beginning of the Chatham community’s Christmas festivities (“Christmas in Colonial Chatham”). Traditionally, a Hanging of the Greens service marks the beginning of the Advent season. Advent looks with hope to the coming celebration of the nativity of Jesus at Christmas as well as with expectation to His eschatological return at the Second Coming.

Note From the Infirmary

Delta Takes the Win at Drill Competition

 The scoring was very close between Delta and Alpha Companies with Bravo in a close third place.  Band and Charlie Company performed well especially considering that they have much less time to practice drill.  Overall I am impressed with the performance of the Cadets compared to where we were last year.
