Changes in store for homecoming New route for parade; coronation before game

Homecoming Nov. 7-11 Blountstown High School is gearing up to celebrate their 2011 homecoming, “Red, White and True…A Salute to the Fighting Tigers”. Since our homecoming falls during the week of Veteran’s Day we decided to focus our theme not just on our fighting Tigers, but our veterans as well. Starting off on Monday, we will have “College Team Spirit” day where the students will dress to show their support for their favorite college team. Tuesday will be “Support Our Troops” day. The students will wear either red, white and blue or camo to show their support for our troops. At 1 p.m., we will have a Veteran’s Assembly in our new auditorium. We are inviting all veterans to join us on this special occasion. Wednesday will be “Duct Tape” day, where students can show off and wear their duct tape creations. Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. the students will meet in the gym for homerooms to compete against each other in the Mega Relay Race. Thursday will be “Celebrity Day”. The students can dress as a famous or infamous celebrity. That afternoon at 1:30 p.m. the students will gather in the auditorium for the annual Tiger’s Growl. We are sorry to say that only BHS students are invited to this event, as our new auditorium seats only 300. If you would like to buy a DVD of the event you may contact BHS the week after homecoming. On Thursday night, the community bonfire will take place at the new BHS campus. We will have free hotdogs, chips and sodas for all. Please join us in roasting the Lafayette County Hornets. Friday will be “Tiger Pride” day and the annual parade at 1 p.m. The parade route will be different this year as it will be starting and ending at our new campus on HWY. 69. We do not suggest that anyone try to walk the whole parade, instead only walk certain sections of the parade route. If you would like to be included in the parade, please call BHS at 674-5724 to sign up. Another difference this year will be the coronation of the Homecoming King and Queen on the football field during the pre-game celebration at 6:25 p.m. on Friday night. The Homecoming football game will start at 7 p.m. against the Lafayette County Hornets. Please come out to cheer our Tigers on to victory. After the Homecoming game there will be a Homecoming dance for BHS students in the new BHS gym sponsored by FFA and French Club until 12 midnight. We invite you, the community, to share in our Homecoming spirit. Please join us in celebrating that Tiger Pride and saluting our nations veterans!
