Hello Maricopa Family, I am writing you concerning a very important issue that has a profound impact on our community.
I am speaking about the Maricopa High School Homecoming game and connected special events. Celebrating 60 years of Ram Pride, the Maricopa High School Homecoming Committee has spent countless hours preparing for the week of Sept. 17 through the 24th and really need your participation.
Unless you have ever been a part of a team such as this, you’ll never know and appreciate all the planning and energy that goes into making Homecoming a special event.
The student body looks forward to this week where they can “Paint the Town Red” and show their Ram Pride in thought, word and deed. This year’s herculean task is no less challenging than any in the past and the organizers need your help and support to pull it off.
Having been directly involved in last year’s committee, I was thoroughly impressed with the unselfish manner in which students, faculty, parents and community supporters came together to create an exciting and thoughtful program. Keeping their focus on School Spirit and Pride, the committee reaches out to businesses, and individuals encouraging them join in their quest to highlight Maricopa’s community spirit. This year adding to the fun is the celebration of Maricopa High’s 60th anniversary, what better way to celebrate the school’s history than to have a full blown celebration.
This year’s herculean task is no less challenging than any in the past and the organizers need your help and support to pull it off.
Please come out and experience the contagious excitement starting Saturday, Oct. 17, with the Tortosa HOA & UltraStar Laser Tag Tourney and ending with the MHS Homecoming Dance Saturday, Oct. 24. For questions on how you can participate or if you are a businessowner and want to enter the “Paint the Town Red” contest, contact Bermadette Russoniello at 520-568-8100, ext. 4047. You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
