ALBION – High School Band Director Mike Thaine leads the pep band during tonight’s Albion football game versus Maryvale. The band and the big crowd was in a good mood as Albion rolled to a 39-6 win on Homecoming.

The game also featured the debut of a new popcorn machine run by the Albion Alumni Foundation. Ed Fancher, Class of 1983, fills a bag of popcorn from the new machine, which Fancher said was faster and did a better job than the old one.

Jean Shervin, Class of 1953, also worked in the booth. They were joined by Debbie Heuer, Class of 1970, and former Albion teacher and coach Doug Miller.

They expected to go through a 50-pound bag of popcorn tonight. The Alumni Foundation is donating the popcorn machine to the High School Student Council, but the alumni will continue to have use of it for future Homecoming football games.
