Jersey auction, lip sync highlight homecoming
Royalty to be crowned Sept. 18.
Brady Public School students are celebrating homecoming this week with dress-up days and other fun activities.
On Tuesday, students and staff dug out their tie-dyed clothes and beads for hippy day. Wednesday (today) will get a little sticky with duct tape and Thursday is wacky-tacky day.
All of the red and white comes out on Friday for color day.
The public is encouraged to attend a football jersey auction following the junior varsity volleyball quadrangular on Thursday evening.
Volleyball begins at 4:30 p.m. with Brady vs. Maywood followed by Gothenburg resreves vs. Maxwell.
Losers play at 6:30 p.m. and winners face off at 7:30 p.m.
Retired auctioneer Tommy Palmer will take bids on Brady football jerseys following the games in a fundraiser for the Talon Power Booster Club.
Each player’s white jersey will be sold to the highest bidder and may be worn on Friday. Funds raised will benefit all Brady school activities.
On Friday, the public is invited to the homecoming pep rally that will include a lip sync contest and speeches from coaches. The event begins at 3:15 p.m. in the gym and will be followed by freshman, junior varsity and varsity volleyball against Callaway.
A tailgate meal served by the booster club starts at 5 p.m. at the school. Hamburgers and hotdogs will be grilled on the east side of the building until 7:30 p.m. when the football game with Callaway kicks off.
Crowning of the annual homecoming royalty is planned at halftime of the football game with the dance after the game until midnight.
