Frazee-Vergas plans back to school and Homecoming events

The Frazee Student Council has been hard at work this summer preparing for the upcoming school year.

"We have had some great meetings this summer and are excited for the school year to start," says Student Council Co-Advisor Lindsey Seawell.

The Student Council has adopted the theme of "This is the Year" as their motto for 2012-13, and will try and carry that out throughout their events during the school year.

In conjunction with back to school activities, on Friday, Sept. 7, they will be having an event called "Tackle Cancer." 

This event will include events at the high school, where tickets will be sold for a chance to win the "best seat in the house," root beer floats will be sold during lunch on Friday, and the Student Council is also encouraging all fans to wear green to the football game as a sign of unity, as they all work to "Tackle Cancer." 

There will be a pass the hat donation during halftime as we work to raise money for the Randy Shaver Cancer Research and Community Fund. 

The Hornets take on the Mahnomen Indians.  Kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
