Affected by the football schedule, Student Council works on organizing Homecoming, which is occurring earlier than usual.
Ladies, better start shopping for those fancy dresses and gentlemen start brainstorming how you’re going to ask that special somebody to the homecoming dance. That’s right, Red Lion High School’s homecoming is right around the corner.
Homecoming is taking place on Sept. 27, which is earlier than other past Red Lion homecomings.
“Because of the football schedule, it has to be earlier depending on what teams they play.” Senior Student Council Representative Paige Baublitz said. “There is a certain game that makes it “the Homecoming Game.”
“Since all of the football games are earlier this year, that would make the homecoming game earlier. We started planning it at the end of last school year rather than the beginning of this school year,” Senior Student Council Representative Emma Snyder said.
“Homecoming is organized by the Student Council as far as the theme, the election of queen, and the bonfire.” Student Council advisor Mrs. Jane Dennish also said. ”What we do not have control of is the date. That is determined by the football schedule of home games. Most of the games have a special title and that is the same schedule every year. We just happen to have a lot of home games early this year. We had this situation about 11 years ago.”
Homecoming has a circus theme and tickets will be on sale on Sept. 15. Singles are $20 and doubles are $30.
Nominations took place on September 2 and 3. Seniors Paige Baublitz, Taylor Bosley, Allie Burd, Kendall Lookingbill, Morgan Reider, Johnnie Tamny and Paige Taylor are on the court. The school-wide vote for Homecoming Queen will be on Sept. 25 and the winner will be announced during the pep rally in the Fitzkee Center the same day.
The Homecoming parade will be Sept. 24 at 7.
