Salisbury Homecoming events are planned

Homecoming is right around the corner. If you are a Salisbury grad, why not come out to your old stomping grounds and support the football team? Who knows, you might run into some old classmates. The game starts 7 p.m. Oct. 13 versus Northern Lehigh. Actually, come out a little early, line the streets around the high school and watch the annual Homecoming parade. Go Falcons!

Keeping with Homecoming tradition, Salisbury High School will host the Homecoming dance 7 p.m. Oct. 14.

The Salisbury Middle School and SHS cheerleaders will hold a flapjack breakfast fundraiser 8 to 10 a.m. Oct. 14 at Applebees, 7150 Hamilton Blvd., Trexlertown. If you don’t know a cheerleader to buy tickets from or for more information, contact Coach Paula at pdouris@salisbury.org.

The SHS German exchange program is continuing their fundraising basket raffle at the next two home football games Oct. 13 and 20. Thirty-three baskets are up as prizes, ranging in value from $40 to $200. For more information, contact Frau Spradlin at kspradlin@salisburysd.org.
