Editorial: Let's paint the town Purple and Gold
September 27, 2017
Whitehall High School is only one week away from one of the most exciting times of the school year. The annual Homecoming Week festivities will take place from October 2 to 6. It will be a fun week for both students and local residents with a parade, a wide variety of school activities, a volleyball match, and a rivalry football game against Jefferson.
The week is also a chance for local businesses to show their Trojan Pride with a decorating contest being organized by the Whitehall High School Student Council.
In the past 14 months there have been some outstanding Whitehall teams and this success has not only made the community proud, but it brings Whitehall and the surrounding area together in the best of ways. The Whitehall High School booster club has also stepped up strong to spread Trojan Pride with every chance they get.
I would like to encourage local businesses to take part in the student council contest next week. It would say a lot about the community for people to drive down the street and be able to see the entire town decorated in Purple and Gold.
The Whitehall Ledger will certainly be decorating for Homecoming, but also felt it was important to be involved with the contest and the winning business will get a free "splash ad" for one month at http://www.whitehallledger.com. A splash ad will appear every time someone logs on and is a great showcase for a business. The Ledger website has a strong and loyal base of readers, and the ad should be a real boon for the business.
As another way to say thanks for showing Trojan Pride, the business will also be highlighted with a feature article.
It's going to be a great week in Whitehall, and I hope to see the town decorated in Purple and Gold.
