Homecoming is this week. SHS classes from 1959, 1969, 1979, 1989, 1999 and 2009 are highlighted inside this edition of the Sanger News on pages 6-16. The weekend begins with the Friday night (Sept. 20) football game between Sanger and Mineral Wells at 7:30 p.m. The SHS band will perform before the game. At halftime, after Mineral Wells’ band finishes, the SHS homecoming king, queen and football sweetheart seniors will be crowned. The homecoming court will feature the freshman, sophomore and junior prince and princess .

The parade will once again, line up at the First Baptist Church on Saturday, September 21. The Theme: “Decades” should be an interesting theme for everyone to remember the past. The parade set up and line up will begin at 9:00 a.m. Line up will begin at 9:30 a.m. with the parade beginning at 10:00 a.m. The route will travel from FBC-Sanger to 2nd Street, North on 2nd to Elm, West on Elm, South on 5th, East on Bolivar (Downtown), back to 3rd, where participants can head back to FBC-Sanger.
