Here’s the tentative Homecoming 2014 schedule


By David F. Rooney

Over the past few months I have received a number of e-mails from readers in and out of town who are curious no (let me rephrase that) — anxious to know what’s being organized for Homecoming 2014.

Until now there has been no schedule, in fact almost nary a word, from the Homecoming Committee. However, I am pleased to say that there is now a tentative schedule of events.

More information will be provided as it becomes available but, for now, if you’re planning your vacation this should be helpful:
