KENDALL – Homecoming weekend is underway at Kendall Central School. The sun came out Friday evening following rain showers and thunderstorms just in time for the Homecoming Parade which made its way down Kendall Road (Rt. 237) to the Jr./Sr. High School campus.

Members of the Class of 2021 (Freshmen) chose a “Back to the 50’s” theme for their float. Each class float featured a different decade.

The Class of 2020 (Sophomores) chose to feature the roaring 20’s with “Opening Night.” The float included flappers and gangsters from the 1920’s era.

The Class of 2019 (Juniors) float featured a 1980’s theme with a Rubik’s Cube, Pac-Man, M-TV,and Michael Jackson.

Kendall’s Senior Class chose a 1960’s theme for their float with flower children, peace-niks, and lots of tie-dye.

A tribute to the July 1969 Lunar Landing was also a part of the Senior Class Homecoming parade entry. Jeremy Browe said he hung on to the flagpole to stay upright throughout the parade.
