PERRIN – The town of Perrin is gearing up for the citywide celebration of the 100th anniversary of the town’s school system.

On Thursday, Sept. 26, beginning at 3:30 p.m., there will be a festival with booths for games and other items. Some are locals who will be selling crafts, jewelry, health items and even reproduced Perrin Community 1935 cookbooks. This will be taking place on the school’s concrete parking lot between the new high school gym and the Agriculture Barn. To reserve booth space contact elementary school Principal Amy Salazar at (940) 798-3718, ext. 229.

There will also be a bonfire that night in the area west of the barn.

On Friday, Sept. 27, the homecoming parade will begin with the lineup of floats and all participants at 2 p.m. in front of the elementary building. The parade is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. It will leave from the elementary school’s main entrance, circle through town and end up at the football field for a rousing pep rally. There will be a volleyball game at 4 p.m. against Poolville in the high school gym.

At 7:30 p.m. that Friday, the Pirates football team will play Santo in the homecoming game at Pirates Stadium. At halftime, recognition will be given to the alumni class with the most attendees, the class that traveled the farthest and the oldest alumni from the ones who attend the game.

On Saturday, Sept. 28, several individual classes of alumni are planning get-togethers. There will be a lunch served at noon in the high school gym. Cost is $9 a plate, which will be catered by Mineral Wells Chicken Express. It will consist of chicken tenders, sides and dessert. During the luncheon, the Homecoming Committee will have a roll call of classes and a slide show presentation showing pictures from the earliest times to present activities. At this time acknowledgment of the alumni class with the most attendees, the class that traveled the farthest, the oldest alumni and other such acknowledgments will be made known.
