The annual Bobcat Fan Fair will be held Saturday, Aug. 26. This is free, family fun event at the High School Athletic Stadium. There will be much to see and to do – including checking out the new track. Gates open at 4 p.m. and the fun builds from there. The High School band will march in at 4:30 accompanied by an antique fire truck carrying the cheerleaders. After the band performs, Board of Education president Ellen Scholl will sing the Star Spangled Banner. Mayor Richard Edwards will be on hand to cut the ribbon dedicating the new stands and Superintendent Francis Scruci will welcome everyone. The Athletic teams will then be introduced by their coaches as they parade onto the field.

Fans will then be invited to come on down to the track to meet the coaches and student athletes as well as participate in many games and activities. Students from the elementary schools through middle school can win a free Bobcat Proud T-shirt by visiting each table and completing their “passport.” All students who complete a passport will be entered in a drawing to win a student “all-sport” pass for the entire school year.

There will be food! The High School teachers are offering a hot dog meal (hot dog, chips, cookie and drink) for only $3, which will benefit their scholarship fund. Drinks and snow cones will also be available for purchase but the ice-cream is FREE!

This is not only an excellent opportunity for families to spend some time together, their young students will be inspired to work hard to get to High School and participate in the many sporting opportunities. Athletics are part of the well-rounded education offered in Bowling Green.

The week following is Bobcat Week with several activities being planned. Throughout the week we will be offering free sports schedules and window clings to merchants. To top it off, there will be pep rallies in the elementary and middle schools… all culminating on Saturday.

All Bowling Green supporters are asked to wear the school colors, red and gray, throughout Bobcat Week and especially when they come to the first home football game on Sept. 1 against the Eastwood Eagles. High school football is fast-paced action – no commercial breaks, no replays…just hard hitting football. Come and join in the fun.
