Lincoln Kicks Off Homecoming Week
LINCOLN — Homecoming week kicked off literally with a pep rally and Powderpuff football game at Lincoln’s Wolfpack Stadium Monday evening.
According to Tamra Duncan, Business Technology educator, at Lincoln High School, one of the event organizers, as part of the Homecoming celebration Lincoln Alumni were honored.
In addition to the pep rally, various other events taking place around the stands featured a car show, voter registration drive, and several other community partner events. The Powder Puff game followed the pep rally when Lincoln’s 2018 Homecoming maids were announced.
Stands were full with Wolves’ boosters willingly donating either a hygiene product or a monetary contribution as admittance to the Powderpuff game. Lincoln High School student activities were everywhere from the Powder Puff players themselves along with coaches, cheer, band, Homecoming maids and their football escorts, plus the junior high and senior high football teams.
Homecoming is Friday, October 5, 2018, with another pep rally beginning at 8:30 a.m.
“This event will begin with the judging of the Homecoming floats and pep rally in the high school gym,” Duncan said.
All district faculty, staff, students and partners are invited. Following the pep rally, high school students will be released to participate in the annual Homecoming tailgate.
The Homecoming ceremony will begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday with kickoff for the football game showcasing the senior Wolves (3-1, 1-1 4A-1) versus the Berryville Bobcats (2-3, 0-2 4A-1) at 7 p.m.
There will be no Homecoming Parade on Friday. Instead, class floats and the Homecoming court will participate in the Apple Festival Parade the morning of Saturday, Oct. 6. The tailgate will conclude midday, and high school students will have an opportunity to travel to the Apple Festival.
“We want as many students as possible to go out and support this community event,” Duncan emphasized in an email.
Lincoln introduced the 2018 Homecoming Court maids during Monday’s Powderpuff football game to kick off Homecoming week. Many were involved in the event, either playing in the Powderpuff game or cheering.
