Banquet will honor fall athletes

Peabody-Burns Athletic Director Ray Savage has announced the athletic banquet honoring athletes participating in fall sports will be at 7 p.m. Nov. 7 in the Brown Gymnasium.

The banquet will honor high school students in cheerleading, cross-country, football, and volleyball.

“The banquet will be a dessert banquet,” Savage said. “We are asking each family to bring a dessert — cookies, cake, brownies, pie, cheesecake — any type of desert. Desserts will be served from a common table and should be brought to the gymnasium by 6:45 p.m.”

The athletic department will supply drinks, cups, plates, napkins, utensils, and several tubs of ice cream.

Dessert will be available from 7 to 7:15 p.m., with coaches presentations to follow.

“As usual, we remind everyone that this is a banquet and encourage them to dress accordingly,” Savage said.

A meeting for parents of high school basketball team members will immediately follow the athletic banquet.

“This meeting, scheduled to start at about 8 p.m. should last no more than 30 minutes,” he said. “Insurance, physicals, and medical releases will be discussed. And coaches will have the opportunity to discuss their programs.”
