Hononegah plans Homecoming, 100th anniversary celebrations


HCHS Alumni members (L -R) Jeanna McAffee, Laura Zwart, Kim Robinson and reporter Marianne Mueller lined up for the parade through Main Street on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021.

At Hononegah's August Board of Education meeting, Student Council representative Riley Dick talked about the activities planned for Homecoming 2022. Hononegah Community High School is celebrating 100 years and Homecoming events will be a reflection of those years.

Events and activities will include:

  • Window painting on Sept. 17
  • Lip- sync battle on Sept. 19
  • Talent show on Sept. 20
  • Powderpuff games, a pep rally and a bonfire on Sept. 22
  • Parade on Sept. 23, followed by the Homecoming football game
  • Homecoming dance on Sept. 24

The Rockton Fire Department will oversee the bonfire. 

The parade will roll down Rockton's Main Street on Friday evening, Sept. 23, followed by the Homecoming football game.  The final event of that week is the Homecoming dance on Saturday evening, Sept. 24. As a nice bonus, plans are to have food trucks during the Powderpuff games. Alumni may enter Friday night's game at no charge and an alumni tent will be found in the end zone. Tickets are available on Hononegah High School's website for the H.O.P.E Foundation's Feast on the Field Tailgate party.

Adding to Homecoming spirit, the council is creating a "heavy metal" T-shirt concept for Spirit Week. The shirt hopes to feature upcoming school events on the back of the shirt, as if they were tour dates, and the name “Hononegah” prominently displayed on the front in “Metallica” style lettering.
