The Henderson Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the first Annual Alumni Weekend to coincide with Heartland’s Homecoming. This weekend is created to help the alumni of Heartland, Bradshaw, and Henderson reconnect around weekend events and activities.
The weekend events will start with the Heartland Homecoming Football game on Friday, October 18, where the Huskies will take on Fullerton at 7:00 p.m. Heartland Band Director Royce Schweitzer, invites alumni to join the junior high students playing in the pep band during the game as well. Anyone wanting to play in the pep band is encouraged to contact Mr. Schweitzer for more details at 402-723-4434. Following the game, everyone is invited to Bulldog Roadhouse in Bradshaw to reconnect with old classmates and friends.
On Saturday morning, October 19, an Alumni Basketball Tournament will begin at 9:00 a.m. Players will be grouped to form teams with men and women encouraged to play. The number of games played will be based on the number of players. Non-alumni individuals living in the Henderson area are also encouraged to register to play on the rival team. Players can register online or print a registration form at www.HendersonNe.com/alumni.
On Saturday evening, Perks will be open with live music from the band Shooter Jaxx, featuring Heartland Alumni Brandon Ulmer, in an acoustic show. Music will start at 8:00 p.m., and there will be a $5 entrance fee. To round out the weekend events, Perks will be open on Sunday, October 20, serving Verenika from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
