Bowie Booster Club launches downtown decoration contest

Published

on

By ERIC VICCARO
The Bowie Booster Club is seeking to get downtown merchants more involved supporting the Jackrabbits and Lady Rabbits.
The project is the brainchild of Heartland proprietor Jessica Gresham, whose business is located in downtown Bowie.
“We are trying to become more involved with the city, and we want the city to more involved with us,” said Booster Club president Keith Weber.
All participants will be announced at every home game for the duration of fall sports.
Winners will be given spirit gear, an advertisement in the Bowie Pride program and additional recognition at the all-sports banquet in the spring.
All windows must be family friendly and supportive, and incorporate the Rabbit colors of maroon and white.
The club has also offered suggestions on how to make windows appeal to the judging panel.
Use the theme, “Get involved,” different ideas to express Bowie ISD school spirit and have a variety of organizations in the decorations (sports, band, clubs, etc.).
Registration forms are currently circulating.
Pick one up at Heartland or Main Street Bowie.
Main Street Bowie has agreed to partner with the booster club on this proud endeavor.
The registration form includes the business name, address and pertinent contact information.
Judging will take place the week of Sept. 19, and winners will be announced on Sept. 23 at the Homecoming football game between Bowie and Jacksboro.
Return entry forms to Heartland or the Main Street Bowie office at 201-A Walnut Street.
Students could turn decorating downtown into a community service project. Downtown lanterns may be adorned in ribbons. The art club and art classes at BHS also may help with the project. Get a jump on it now.
For information, call Gresham at 1-940-872-7586 or [email protected].
