LHS prepares for homecoming activities
Homecoming activities are scheduled for next week at Lansing High School, with at least one change in the traditional homecoming calendar.
This year's homecoming parade will be on Wednesday, Sept. 20. Traditionally, the parade has been on a Friday.
The parade is just one of several homecoming events set for Wednesday.
The Lansing Booster's annual chili supper, bonfire and parade all will be Wednesday night, two days before Lansing High School's homecoming football game.
Teana Hundley, club president, said the events were planned for the same night in anticipation of construction on the new high school auditorium and to encourage football players' participation.
The club will sponsor the chili supper in the high school commons from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Cost is $5 for adults and $3 for students and children.
At 5:45 p.m., the homecoming parade will begin with a new route this year.
The 1.4-mile route will begin on Olive Street, then proceed to First Terrace, Fawn Valley, Hithergreen Drive, Hillbrook Drive and finish on East Mary Street.
The bonfire will take place after the parade in front of the high school.
The homecoming football game is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22, against Bonner Springs. At halftime of the game, the homecoming king and queen will be crowned.
This year's homecoming dance will be from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23, at the high school.
