Fifth annual bonfire to kick off Homecoming 2013 festivities

Homecoming 2013 at Fort Hays State University will officially begin with a bonfire and pep rally on Thursday, Oct. 3, sponsored by Tigers4Ever and FHSU Greek Life.

The rally begins at 7 p.m., when a procession will start snaking its way from the residence halls through campus to the Robbins Center.

Festivities at the Robbins Center begin at 7:30 p.m. on the east lawn near the Robbins Center, featuring speeches from coaches and appearances by the FHSU cheerleaders, Tiger Debs, President Edward H. Hammond and Victor E. Tiger. The public is invited.

Global Leadership will hold a canned food drive. They are asking participants to bring canned food item for the FHSU Food Pantry and community food pantries. A drop off-box will be in the Robbins Center and in the Center for Student Involvement in the Memorial Union.

To help provide spirit wear, Eagle Communications will provide 100 FHSU T-shirts for a T-shirt exchange from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, and Wednesday, Oct. 2, in the Memorial Union. The FHSU shirts will be traded in for other universities' shirts, which will be donated to Goodwill.
