Westbury High School will hold its annual Homecoming celebration on Saturday, Oct. 17.
The day will begin at 8 a.m. with the usual pancake breakfast, sponsored by the high school PTA, in the cafeteria of the high school. The breakfast will feature “all you can eat” pancakes, served with bacon, eggs, sausage and a cold beverage for a mere $6. Coffee, tea, fruits and assorted pastries will also be on sale.
Following the breakfast will be the Homecoming Parade along Post Avenue featuring local civic groups, community associations and the members of the elementary, middle and high schools. The parade begins at noon, and will culminate at the high school sports field prior to the football game between the West Hempstead Rams and the Westbury Dragons. Kick off is 1:30 p.m. and half-time activities will feature the presentation of the royal court.
The Grand Marshal for this year’s parade will be longtime Westbury resident Dr. Darrell W. Pone, author of We’ve Come This Far By Faith and Dr. Pone’s Ten Keys to Success. This year’s theme will be “Westbury Back in the Day,” and will focus on the decade of the 1920, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
The day’s activities will conclude with the senior class dance at the high school from 7 to 11 p.m.
Come and make a day of it, the weather promises to be nice, so bring the entire family and enjoy!
