Pine-Richland is uniting alumni as the district celebrates homecoming Friday and Saturday, Oct. 4 and 5.

A procession of students, alumni and floats will kick off the celebration at 6:15 p.m. Friday.

The parade will include JR Air Force ROTC Cadets, youth football teams and cheerleaders, the high school marching band, cheerleaders, dance team and color guard and the Pine-Richland homecoming court.

Miss Pennsylvania, National American Miss, Jr. and Preteen Olivia Scullion and Miss Pennsylvania, National American Miss and Preteen Sydney Rowland will join the procession.

Alumni are invited to march and should report behind the high school at 5:30 p.m., district communication director Rachel Hathhorn said.

The parade will make its way from the high school to the stadium, where visitors can enjoy food vendors and spirit-wear booths.

The football game will begin at 7:30 p.m. as the Pine-Richland varsity football team takes on Central Catholic. The Pine-Richland homecoming queen will be crowned at halftime.

The Pine-Richland Education Support Professionals Association (PRESPA) will collect non-perishable food and winter clothing for the North Hills Community Outreach before and during the game, said Susan Torchia, community service coordinator for the PRESPA.

All donations will benefit local families, Torchia said.

On Saturday, students can attend a homecoming dance from 7 to 10 p.m.

High school officials are looking for parent volunteers to help students decorate the school for the dance at 8 a.m. Saturday. Contact sponsor Brittany Pikur for details at bpikur@pineichland.org.

Parents to chaperone the dance are also needed. If interested, contact sponsor Lindsay Brough at lbrough@pinerichland.org.
