An alumni reception will run from 6 p.m. until halftime during the football game against Eastern York High School. The reception will be at the Dale R. Keagy Plaza, located at the Susquehannock Alumni Field House. According to a news release from the school, alumni can visit the alumni association registration booth to receive a bag of free gifts, such as a collectible homecoming button.

At the field, festivities will begin at 6:25 p.m. while those in attendance wait for the game to start at 7 p.m. Game tickets are $4 for adults, $2 for students and $1 for senior citizens.

Alumni will have the chance to win the annual Alumni Spirit Award, which will be presented at halftime. Last year, Jeanne Best, a school district resident and volunteer, won the award, according to a news release. Alumni are encouraged by the district to wear their varsity jackets.
