GHS gearing up for homecoming

by marlys good

Greybull High School will be showing “Buff Pride” next week as the students celebrate homecoming.

Leading up to the festivities at the end of the week will be dress-up days. Monday has been designated as Color Wars, Tuesday students will dress up as their favorite superhero, and Wednesday as a character from a movie. The halls will be alive with look-alikes Thursday for Twin Day, which will include the traditional Burning of the “G” at 6:30 p.m. Prior to the bonfire the classes will engage in a water balloon fight; may the best class win.

Friday students will show their school pride by wearing blue and gold. The Greybull Booster Club will serve lunch to all the middle/high school students prior to the homecoming parade at 12:30 p.m.

Netters will have to hurry back from the parade and don their uniforms for a homecoming match with the Burlington Lady Huskies at 2, 3 and 4 p.m.

The king and queen will be announced and crowned during halftime of the Greybull-Pinedale football game, which kicks off at  7 p.m.

Capping the celebration is the homecoming dance Friday evening.

Since “homecoming” is traditionally the time alumni are welcomed back to their old “stomping grounds,” it is hoped to see many former graduates lining the streets, sitting in the bleachers, or standing on the sidelines to cheer on their old alma mater.
