The tailgate party is scheduled for Friday night, August 24, at Falcon Stadium
4560 Falcon Drive Austintown, OH 44515
Festivities will begin at 5:30 at the stadium. Plan to arrive by driving down Burkey road, cross Raccoon Rd, and enter the school parking lot from the south. (The fitness center will be on your right.)
Bill Soccorsy will be at the gate with your tickets. (Look for the sign)
Bill will direct you to the tent where we will meet. Tickets for the game are included in your registration fee for the reunion.
We will have snacks (finger food) and refreshments.
The public address announcer will be acknowledging the class during the game.
The Fitch athletic department has also told us that night has been designated Jack Kidd night.
Jack is a 1962 Fitch graduate, and has served on every class reunion committee. The athletic department is honoring Jack that night for his decades of service for the department. Jack spent over 25 years filming games for the coaches, an effort that helped immensely in game preparation. Jack performed this service for free, out of his love for Falcon football. The fact that Jack was a former Falcon football player only helped him to understand what to film for the coaches. Jack performed many other services for the department, and for this, they will be honoring Jack at the game that night. He will serve as honorary captain, wearing a jersey, and being on the field during the coin toss.
This is wonderful news and just adds to the excitement which is building for the coming reunion.
We would like for everyone who attends to wear their school colors and be ready to cheer the mighty Falcons on to victory against the Harding Raiders!
Following the conclusion of the game, we will adjourn to "The Manor"
(formerly Austin Manor)
