Weeklong Homecoming Celebration planned for Bulldog fans
Following a home turf victory the Cooper High School Bulldog fans have even more to cheer about coming next week as fun activities are planned.
Originally planned for Monday the Homecoming Parade will now be on Tuesday, Sept. 22 due to the Trustees meeting and Flex Day.
The parade lineup will be at 6 p.m. at the old high school. The parade will begin at 6:30 p.m. followed by a community pep rally at Bulldog Stadium. This year’s Grand Marshals are Bud and Anelle Patterson. Mrs. Patterson was a long time employee at the District who has retired.
The school’s homecoming pep-rally will be on Friday, Sept. 26 starting at 2:15 p.m. in the High School gym. Pregame homecoming ceremonies and the crowning of the new queen will begin at 6:45 p.m. on Friday night, Sept. 25 at Bulldog Stadium as Cooper takes on the Whitewright Tigers.
There will also be a multi-church sponsored fifth quarter event on the Square in Cooper until midnight Friday with free hot dogs, popcorn and snacks. There will be volleyball, bounce houses and a movie all on the Square.
“We wanted to do something for the community,” said organizer Lonnie Sanders of New Life Baptist Church. “So come out and enjoy both nights.”
On Saturday night, Sept. 26 they will also be hosting free hamburgers along with more games and entertainment – free to the public. The Council approved the closing of the north and east sides of the square to coordinate the free event.
