The Lodi High School 2021 Homecoming week (Oct. 11 to Oct. 16) is only a few days away. With many of the traditions still in place like class t-shirts, dress-up days, class banners and floats, the dance, and homecoming court, there will also be some refreshing changes to look forward to.
For instance, class banners will be hung in area businesses during the week, and on Wednesday, Oct. 13 the high school will be hosting the first-ever Powder Puff football fundraiser on the stadium field from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. This event will be open to the public and all students, parents, and community members can enjoy the fun for an entry fee of $5.00. All proceeds will be shared between Reach Out Lodi and the Lodi Area Community Endowment (LACE).
Another big change is the new route of the parade. Working in cooperation with the City of Lodi the parade will begin at the corner of Grand Ave. and Sauk Street and go west on Sauk to the High School. With the availability of parking at the middle school and high school, the space available for viewing on both sides of Sauk Street, and allowing our students to finish the parade conveniently at the high school, it should be a great experience for everyone.
