Tigers come home

By Staff | May 20, 2009

Tiger alumni from all over will convene on Sistersville this weekend for a good, old fashioned ‘Jamboree in the ‘Ville’.

Donning their orange and black, the ferocious feline fans will prowl the town in search of fun and friends.

The weekend will officially kick-off on Friday, May 22, with Chapel in the Sistersville High School gymnasium at 9 a.m.

A four-man golf scramble with follow at noon at the Sistersville Country Club. All proceeds from the tournament will go toward the scholarship fund. The tournament is limited to 80 players and golfers are encouraged to purchase tickets early. Cash prizes will be given at the banquet.

The Presidential Luncheon will be held at noon at the Elks Lodge. Advanced tickets are available for the event.

OUT AND ABOUT — All over town preparations are underway for company as members of various classes decorate windows on Wells Street. To add to the homecoming atmosphere, Norma Slider and Deloris Placer planted flowers in the barrels along the street.

Festivities will pick up once again on Saturday with a parade through the streets of Sistersville at 1 p.m. Awards will be given for first, second and third place parade entries from decade and anniversary classes; the President’s trophy will be given or best overall float. Other awards include the ‘Should’ve, Could’ve, Would’ve award and best non-alumni float.

The Alumni Banquet will be held at 5:30 p.m. at the Elks. The cost will be $15 per person. This year’s speaker will be Dr. Amanda Nichols, Class of 1993.
