  • Sporting Goods Collection: 11:00 am-4:00 pm
    Have your kids outgrown their sports equipment, cleats, or catcher’s gear? Have you tripped over one too many basketballs, tennis rackets, or baseball bats? Do you think someone else could benefit from the use of your gently used sports equipment? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then bring these items to Homecoming for donation to local community organizations.

Wait, That’s Not All...
The ultra-talented Fieldston Percussion Ensemble will make an appearance starting at around 1:45 pm and will also play during football’s halftime.

See you October 21! Go Eagles!
