Tailgate party to spotlight senior athletes

Peabody Main Street Association will host a tailgate party at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 17 in Santa Fe Park. Honored guests at the party will be senior athletes participating in fall sports.

The community is invited to attend.

“The coaches will speak briefly about their programs,” said Main Street interim director Shane Marler. “The cheerleaders will participate and the Warrior band will play. It will be like a community pep rally.

“We’d really like to see people turn out.”

Senior athletes will be signing special posters created by Janet Post and Shane Marler. A cost by donation meal will be served from the tailgates of several pickup trucks. (First Street will be barricaded between Walnut and Sycamore to provide an area for serving.)

“The first tailgate party was a huge success and we hope this one will be as much fun for the athletes and community,” said Marler.

For more information contact Marler at the city building at 983-2174.
