SOUTHERN OPEN, September 25th

The last day to buy tickets for the Southern Open Exhibition will be this Friday.  Tickets are $5 and are available from Mr. Bowman.  If you do not have them by Friday, you will have to purchase at the gate the day of the event for $8.

These students deserve to have the home side of the stadium packed. This will be one of the few times you will ever get to see the band do the entire production.
