The folks who are in charge of Hillcrest High School’s 75th anniversary celebration in October want to make sure that it’s on the calendars of all alumni.
“We are incredibly proud of Hillcrest, and we want the halls of Hillcrest High School to be filled with alumni,” said Linda Cullum Tunnell, a member of the class of 1962 and co-chair of the 75th Steering Committee with classmate Christy Bednar. “Moreover, Franklin Field will rock when we cheer for the Panthers against T.J.”
The 75th anniversary will kick off with the homecoming parade at 5 p.m. on Oct. 4, as classes from the 1940s through the 2000s will march in the annual “Parade of Classes” prior to the football game against Thomas Jefferson. On Oct. 5, alumni will be welcomed back to their school for the anniversary event from 11 a.m. from 2 p.m.
All alums are urged to participate in the homecoming parade and walk with their classmates in the Parade of Classes. The tailgate party in the Franklin Field parking lot will begin immediately following the parade, with soft drinks and food available for purchase.
On Oct. 5, alumni are encouraged to bring their children and grandchildren for picnics, face painting, a bounce house, and fare from some of Dallas’ best food trucks. There will also be pick-up basketball and softball games for alumni to participate in.
