2016 Tri-Village Community & School Fair ~ Fall Homecoming

“Following Our Dreams & Building On New Traditions”. This years’ theme has a special meaning as we begin a “New Tradition” by combining our 1st annual Tri-Village Community & School Fair with Homecoming. “Following Our Dreams” applies to many wonderful and exciting things happening at Tri-Village and within our community. A long-lived dream for many was the addition of football to the school schedule. Many in the community have had visions and aspirations of someday cheering on a Tri-Village football team. This year that dream became reality with a varsity football team playing under the lights in a beautiful new facility.

Clayton Murphy, a Tri-Village graduate, also recently saw dreams come true as he participated in the 2016 Summer Olympics winning the Bronze medal in the Men’s 800- meter race. The community could not be more proud of this young man and all of his hard work in achieving his dream.

“See The Patriot Light, Feel The Patriot Heat” is the Homecoming theme for this year. The week long festivities kick off on Tuesday, Oct. 4th at 7:00 p.m. with a Clash of the Classes contest located at the football field. Please bring 1 canned good per person for admission, which will be donated to our local Boy Scout Troop. High School students may vote for Homecoming King and Queen, as well as School Fair King and Queen, throughout the evening.

A Powder Puff football game will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at the football field at 7:00 pm. Please bring 1 canned food item per person, which will be donated to the foodbank at the Harrison Street Baptist Church. High School students may vote for Homecoming King and Queen, as well as School Fair King and Queen, throughout the evening. You do not want to miss the Little Miss ~ Mister Patriot Contest to be held at halftime of the Powder Puff game. Those interested, may pick up an entry form at the New Madison Public Library or New Madison Mini Mart. Applications were sent home with Tri-Village Pre-School children. Eligible applicants include children ages 3 to 5 from the Tri-Village Community or enrolled in the Tri-Village School system.

Thursday evening will host a “lighted” Homecoming Parade which begins at 7:00 p.m. The evening wraps up with a Bonfire and Pep Rally to be held immediately following the parade near the girls’ softball diamond.

One of the most popular contests of the School Fair has been the Pumpkin Decorating contest which shows off local talent with some fun and amazing entries.

All of these items may be entered on Friday evening from 3-5 in the Commons area as well as Saturday morning from 8:00-8:45.
