Good news for those of you who don’t like to make plans too far ahead of time. We have extended the registration deadline to the end of July! We are desperately trying to get 400 registered for this event so we can break even and not dip into the scholarship fund, so we are keeping it open! So mail those registrations in and get ready for the fun!
We have made a few other changes along the way as well. Registration packets will now be available for pick up only at the Lane County Historical Museum. Registration will be open from 4-7 on Friday, July 31st, and from 9-5 on Saturday Aug. 1st. Please drop by, pick up your wristbands and event schedules, and maybe have a tour of the new addition that has been added on to our museum.
Calling all Alumni….we are feeling a bit nostalgic this year. I was thinking (dangerous, I know) how much fun it would be to have a twirler at the parade. Soooooo, if anyone out there used to twirl, and would like to revisit their youth, let us know! We would so enjoy having you lead the parade. (I almost talked Judy Fullmer into it after I heard about her homemade fire batons. How cool would THAT be?!)
We really hope to see everyone there. Especially if you have batons…..and know how to use them!
About one year ago, the residents of Lane County approved a tax increase to make some improvements to our schools. The biggest items on the agenda were the heating and cooling systems, electrical systems, and a storm shelter for the elementary school. But along with that came a few extras that have been the talk of the town here in Dighton for quite a while. Many of you may recognize the SE view of DHS (technically now they call it DJSHS…but that’s a lot of typing!) or at least you recognize a track of some sort there. We did get a new and improved track…one that actual other teams will run on…and the new addition going up next to it will be the future home of a new boys locker room and a community center. The community center will have a key card entry and will include free weights, stationary bikes, stair steppers, elliptical machines and an aerobics room. They are refurbishing the current boys’ locker room for a new girls locker room. They have made improvements to the concession stand and the auditorium seats will no longer look like romper room chose the color pallet. All of the improvements are set to be finished by the 2015 ASR, and boy are we excited to show them off to our alumni! (Not sure why they couldn’t just make a new locker room for the girls, but I digress!) So be sure to include a tour of the new facilities in your plans for literally, The Most Exciting Weekend of Your Summer!!!!
Just to tempt you…
