The 2016 Pirate Tailgate party. This year’s event is Thursday (Aug 11) at the City Park across from the High School. Set-up begins at 5:00 pm and the announcing of the students starts at 6:30 pm. Hopefully, we can be cleaned up and cleared of the park before 8:00 pm. If you are participating, I need to know what you will be doing. Will you need electricity, regular booth or grilling? I am excited about another great Tailgate party and to showcase our students. Please do not hesitate to call or text with any questions or concerns. I will do my best to assist! Go Pirates!!
