For those who find this
page and wonder what the big deal is, I would like to give you a little
history on Cimarron's Homecomings.
Many years ago homecomings
were celebrated on a yearly basis here just as they are in most places.
As time went on it became apparent that attendance was not high enough to
please all and especially not high enough to justify all of the hard work that
was put into getting ready for homecoming.
In the Fifties, ??, it was
decided to start having homecomings every third year. That means that if
there is a homecoming when you are a freshman that you will also have one
when you are a senior.
Homecoming Queens are
chosen from the sophomore, Junior, and senior classes. Escorts were
originally chosen from the football team, the captain generally being the
escort of the Queen. As time has gone on it has been decided by the
powers that be that a King should be elected and that he and the other
escorts should come from any male members of the student body.
Alumni volunteer to be on
the homecoming committee. This committee makes sure the homecomings run smoothly.
This committee arranges dinners, dances, parades and other functions.
Alumni join the Alumni Association to help with expenses. When alum go
to the homecoming football game their gate fee automatically goes to the
Association to pay their dues. Those with passes to the game need to
remember to pay that night so their dues are paid.
Over the years it has
become a very big deal for many of Cimarron's Alumni to return home and
renew old friendships, see family and to just plain have a good time. The
local community welcomes everyone with open arms.
Many classes have their
own parties. These parties are often with just their own class, but just
as often with other classes in "near year ranges". For example, many of
the 1960's classes meet above Clark's Pharmacy for food, drink and
reminiscing fun times together. Some alumni spouses and other non-alumni
locals have their own parties.
Many alumni move from
party to party in order to see old friends from other classes. There are
many 'couples' that graduated from different classes that find moving from
party to party a very acceptable way to see more of their friends.
