School plans to honor alumni at opening of football game
If you attended Forest Hill Community High school (even when it was known as The Hill), the staff and students are looking for you. They’re hoping to honor alumni at the opening of the football game scheduled against Okeechobee High School, Friday, October 5– kick-off is 7:00 p.m.
Although this is an “unofficial” alumni night and there is no “tent” for reunions, officials are hoping that all current and past students will turn out to support the Falcons by sitting together and holding banners reflecting the year they graduated during the kick-off of the game. Organizers said representatives of the classes of ’87 and ’93 have already checked, in but they’re waiting to hear from other classes. Alumni are being asked to indicate their class when they purchase their ticket for the game, which will be played at Bobby Riggs Stadium at Kettler Field. Fans are being encouraged to meet for dinner at Bradley’s next door to the West Palm Beach Golf Course before or after the game.
