Homecoming Game, Parade, and Activities
As always, Homecoming Day included more than just the game, which the Bobcats won 48-45 to start their winning ways for the remainder of the season.
My own morning began with preparations for the 90th Homecoming Parade, which the Student Senate organizes--with the help of many people.
This year marked my seventeenth as the announcer for the Homecoming Parade, a "job" with which I have a lot of fun.
I posted two set of photographs. This first set includes some from the parade and quite a few more from the President's House, where Dan and Elaine Hanson hosted a crowd of people that included 50 Mentors, Mentees, and Staff from the Team Mates Mentoring Program.
The Peru State Jazz Band provided entertainment to go with the delights Food Services provided. And many youngsters and adults got pictures taken with the Bobcat Mascot on a beautiful afternoon.
The second set of photographs (and as usual, you can download whatever appeals to you) comes from the Homecoming Game in the colorful and crowded Oak Bowl.
In addition to the two sets of photographs, I also loaded to You Tube a brief video of the Peru State College's Marching Band playing the national anthem sung by David Norris.
The video also includes some photographs, the band's playing the "Peru State Color Song," and a brief shot of the Homecoming Royalty; you will find a few shots of the queen's crowning in the second set of photographs.
