Town bustled Friday and Saturday with all of the Homecoming activities. EHS Tiger spirit was alive and well in our small town. It’s amazing how our small community works so hard to pull this yearly event off. But…of course our town is amazing and so are the people of Electra.
The Friday night’s game against Archer City just shows that our Tigers are a force to be reckoned with! The Tigers secured a win again Archer City with a score of 34 to 14. Then of course at half-time the band marched out on the field presenting the former Exes and the 2015 Homecoming court. Hannah Daniels was crowned this year’s Homecoming queen.
The Homecoming parade started out slightly wet Saturday. However the people rallied together and were real troopers. The parade went as planned. It was spectacular as usual. After the parade, you could walk down town for a car show, eat at the Chuck Wagon feed, check the Grand Theatre auction out, shop and buy from the from our local businesses and/or the community members that had setup small booths, or just visit.
I heard someone comment that the “hometown atmosphere” in Electra never goes away. I for one am proud of our small town and it’s people. The town has a heart that beats from each of it’s citizens. That is why Electra keeps going and it’s traditions live on.
