If you were not at TISD Homecoming, you missed loads of fun. People seemed happy everywhere I went. Out of 12 events I can count for the long weekend, I had to miss two to cook and nap. The rest I attended and saw people I’m glad to know. The best part about homecoming here has to do with our smallness in size as a community.

Homecoming 2011 has arrived with a fish dinner tonight at the VFW banquet room, a pep rally at the gym, and more. The Ex-Student Association headed up by Tommy Thomas with help from the Sharp family, the Wiggins family, the Lawlers, the Bradleys, the Stanfields and many others have planned activities, surprises, and programs to match something of interest for everyone. Come out and see! The game with Fruitvale will be Saturday night, with the King and Queen chosen before the game, and all the classes graduating in years ending with a 1 will be honored at halftime (not 2011). All coaches will be honored in prior activities of the day, such as the parade. A good time to think about for Friday night is 5 p.m. and Saturday night, 7 p.m. Everyone welcome to the Methodist Church Sunday for service and meal!
