B-H Homecoming Next Week
Britton-Hecla homecoming activities are set for next week, Aug. 24-28.
The Class of 2023 has selected the theme, “Braves Got the Beat” for the week-long festivities. Community members are asked to begin gathering ideas and materials to support this year’s theme. The parade, business decorations, and community participation are a big part of the spirit of homecoming.
Coronation of this year’s royalty will be held on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. on the grass west of the tennis courts. The king and queen will be crowned as the school lights the BH.
Senior candidates for homecoming king are Joel James, Colby Carlson, and Trevor Zuehlke. Queen candidates are Taylor Storbakken, Delaney Pruitt, and McKenna Carlson.
The parade is set for 2:30 p.m. on Friday. Entries should begin lining up at the corner of Fifth Street and Ninth Avenue (north of First Lutheran Church) no later than 2:15 p.m. The parade will travel on Main Street from Fifth Street to Vander Horck, turn west on Vander Horck to 13th Avenue, and then turn north and disband.
Parade participants will sign the school release waiver from Jennifer Carlson as they pass the corner of Fifth and Main.
The school is planning Spirit Days during the week for students in grades 6-12. Monday will be Fishing in the Dark (Hunting/Fishing Day), Tuesday is Good Vibrations (Tie Dye Day), Wednesday is True Colors (Colr Day), Thursday is Wake Me Up Before You Go (Pajama Day), and Friday is Red and White Day.
The public is invited to help celebrate “Braves Got the Beat.”
