FORT LORAMIE — “Raise on Country” is the theme for this year’s homecoming at Fort Loramie High School.
The homecoming football game will take place on Friday, Oct. 4, verses Bethel. The crowning ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. The dance is on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 8 to 11 p.m. in the junior high gym.
Other homecoming festivities include the Thursday Night Smackdown. At the Smackdown, the fall sports teams will be introduced, and there will be a class competition. In addition, the grades are battling for bragging rights by dressing up for a spirit week at school and by painting windows at local businesses. Thursday night’s events will begin after the away volleyball game verses Anna, around 8:30 p.m.
Homecoming is sponsored by the high school student council. Together, the student council would like to thank Jeff Gephart of M & A Garage for donating the car for the Thursday Night Smackdown and Safeway Packaging for donating the cardboard.
