Welcome to Wonderland: homecoming dance approaches

By Rebekah Lueke

Are you looking to do something this weekend? The homecoming dance will take place at Penn Manor High School on Saturday, Oct. 15.

The cafeteria will be decorated in theme of “Alice in Wonderland” by Penn Manor’s cheerleaders. The dance begins at 7 p.m. and ends at 10 p.m..

Tickets may be purchased at the doors Saturday night. For one person, tickets cost $8 dollars. For a couple, tickets cost $15. Any student who wants to bring someone from another school must pick up a form in the main office.

On the night of the dance, the homecoming queen will be announced.  Members of the homecoming court were nominated by the senior class.

The homecoming court includes seniors Brooke DeBerdine, Emily Gutierrez, Emma Young, Karly Emmert, Kiah Trago, Lynsey Wissler, Shania Pagan, and Victoria Martin.

Emmert, homecoming queen nominee, said, “The court got together and decided to raise money for Operation Homefront. The money goes to veterans that come home and need medical treatments, help with a fresh start, transitioning from being homeless and other ways of support.”

The homecoming queen will be determined by whoever gets the most votes from the sophomores, juniors and seniors. The runner-up will be the girl who raises the most money.

“I am very excited,” said Emmert. “It’s weird to think that it will be my last, but I know it will be a great time. All of the girls on the homecoming court are happy to have this experience.”
