MEDINA – Medina Mustang Sports Boosters will celebrate homecoming this week, beginning Monday and concluding on Friday when Medina’s hosts Barker/Roy-Hart’s football team.

“To us, homecoming is a community event, a time to celebrate not just Mustang athletics, but who we are as a community,” said Mustang Sports Boosters president Melissa Valley. “Mustang Sports Boosters are always incredibly appreciative of the support the Medina business community provides us, and now we want to celebrate you.”

Their goal for homecoming week is for the whole community to be involved and get into the Mustang spirit. Valley said they hope to get Medina businesses involved in two ways – first, for downtown to show its Mustang spirit with their second annual window decorating contest. Second, the Mustang Boosters want to promote businesses by adding their homecoming specials of the week to the school’s Mustang Menu.

“We will promote your Mustang Special for the week and expect nothing in return,” Valley said.

Businesses have been encouraged to decorate their store front to show Mustang spirit. The community will be invited to vote via the Boosters’ Twitter and Facebook pages to determine the best decorated window. The winner will be announced at halftime during the Homecoming game.

Last year’s winner was the Coffee Pot Café.

The Print Shop has made banners which will be displayed this week on Main Street and in Vets Park.

“This is something that unites the community in a positive way,” Valley added.
