LIN­COLN — Home­com­ing week kicked off lit­er­ally with a pep rally and Pow­der­puff foot­ball game at Lin­coln’s Wolf­pack Sta­dium Mon­day even­ing.

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.
