The pre-game tailgating events will take place at the JV Baseball field behind Southern Elementary to kick start the weekend homecoming festivities this Friday at 4:00 ending around 6:30 P.M..

This year is much different from our previous homecoming tailgates, featuring many new attractions, fun activities, and donations from local businesses.

Business teacher Kellin McCullough, adviser of student council, explains the improvements for this year.

“It’s a lot bigger and better,” said McCullough. “There will be a bounce house, dunk tank, army rock wall, [and] Velcro wall … Red Cheetah will be providing pit beef sandwiches.”

These exciting new additions have been added due to the student council, which has contacted many businesses and organizations to help donate and contribute some of their products and games to ensure the best tailgate possible.

Secretary and senior class officer Jeanette Wilson explains how the student council sought the best additions to add to the tailgate.

“We’ve reached out to a whole bunch of different companies to ask them to sponsor us,” said Wilson. “And we also have asked other companies to supply our games, like the dunk tank and the rock climbing wall.”

They even made the tailgating open to everyone, making it non-exclusive to just high school students and open to the entire community.

Giant and Walmart have both donated gift cards, as well as Brown’s Orchards, who also donated some of their famous apple cider.

Student council hopes that their hard work has gone to good use.

“Hopefully a bunch of people come out because in previous years it’s kind of just been inside and not as exciting,” says Wilson, “but this year it’s free admissions, free food, and a whole bunch of big games.”

Senior student council member Molly Knox is confident that the student body will react in a very positive way.

“I think they will [be] really excited, ready for homecoming, and pumped up,” said Knox.

Sophomore Luke Bond is anxious to partake in the tailgate.

“I read about it on the posters, and it looks like a blast…. and I [think] I [will] have some fun,” said Bond.

Susquehannock students look forward to having a new, exciting way to celebrate before the big football game.
