'Meet the Buckeyes' this evening

“Meet the Buckeyes” at Buckeye Stadium beginning at 7 p.m. will climax a busy day for many of the returning Gilmer High students.
Football players will get Buckeye cards at noon, followed by team photos in the afternoon. Funds from the sale of the cards are used to purchase items selected by the players to supplement their program.
Following the National Anthem, the Buckeye Stars Officers will perform and the varsity and junior varisty cheerleaders will lead the audience in the fight song.
After the Buckeye Band plays and the majorettes perform, introductions will begin with the coaches of the girls teams.
The volleyball team, the boys coaches, the football teams, and the cross country teams will all precede the dance by the varsity cheerleaders.
Athletic Director Jeff Traylor will then introduce the varsity seniors before concluding with the “Army of Buckeyes” school song.
Immediately following the program, football parents (7-12 grades) will meet in the field house and the volleyball parents will meet in Buckeye Gymnasium.
Also at the event, the Gilmer Athletic Boosters Club will have a table set up to sell subscriptions to ESPN The Magazine. A 2-year subscription (52 issues) costs only $40 and the Booster Club gets to keep $30 from each sale! Cash and checks made out to the Gilmer Athletic Booster Club will be accepted.
A subscription also comes with a FREE 2-year subscription to ESPN insider at (an $80 value). If you already have a subscription, you may renew it through this fundraiser for the same low price and get the ESPN insider subscription also. Subscriptions also make great gifts!
