IHS/CDA Homecoming 2003

Mark your calendars! Plans are in progress for the Inverness High School/Central Delta Academy Homecoming 2003. The date has been set for Saturday, April 12, 2003. All current and former students, teachers, patrons, and friends of IHS/CDA are invited to attend this special event. The last homecoming held in 1992 was a huge success. We expect this one to be bigger and better. This will be a great time to visit old friends and reminisce about the fun times at Inverness High School and Central Delta Academy.

Homecoming 2003 will be a fun-filled day for the entire family. Festivities will begin at 9:00 a.m. on the CDA school grounds. There will be class reunions, entertainment, childrenis games, raffle drawings, a country store, a silent auction, Homecoming 2003 T-shirts, and much more. Catfish dinners and concessions will be served throughout the day. The dayis activities will conclude at 3:00 p.m., which will allow everyone time to freshen up for the evening dance. The adult dance (ages 21 and over) will be held at the Indianola Armory from 9:00 p.m. until 12:00 a.m. with music provided by The Krackerjacks. The junior high dance (grades 7 - 9) will be held at the CDA Gym from 8:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.
