Homecoming Bonfire 2014

On Saturday the Booster Club sponsored the annual bonfire on the west side of Reeves Lakes kicking off this week's homecoming activities.  Coach Pro was the announcer for the event.  Cross Country, Volleyball, and Football teams were recognized and a player from each sport spoke.  The Cheerleaders and Flag Corp entertained and the band played as the Friona Fire Department readied the bonfire.

With a resounding "light that fire", the flames gradually rose as the sun set behind us.  

Also at the bonfire was the Band Booster club with another chance to buy a $1.00 raffle ticket for a 50" flat screen TV donated by Bi-Wize Pharmacy.  The winner will be chosen at the park at Saturday's Maize Day events at 1:00 at the Band Booster Club booth.
Each year the bonfire is put on by the Friona Chieftain/Squaw Booster Club, just one of the many things the booster club does for the athletes during the year.  You can find out more information on the Chieftain/Squaw Booster Club Facebook page or by contacting any booster club member. 
A big thank you goes out to the Booster Club, Friona Fire Department, and all the Friona athletes, band members, cheerleaders, fans and community folks that came out and made this a fun night.

After three up and down matches and winning games 1 and 3, the Squaws started the 4th game slow but ended with a boom beating Brownfield 25-12.  This puts the Squaws 18-10 for the season.

The C, JV and V Squaws play River Road in Friona Saturday beginning at noon.  No Chieftain football this week.  Cross Country will be in Lubbock on Saturday.
