Please join us as we begin our season-long celebration. It begins with a parade and bonfire
on Friday night, October 3rd and lasts through the season until our Homecoming Thanksgiving game versus Sterling on November 27th.
Enclosed please find information relative to the 100th anniversary
celebration. The most important part is you! We want you to join us in what plans to be an exciting season for Collingswood football. We plan the following:
A pre-game parade, bonfire and reception on Friday night, October

Throughout the season, at our home games, we will be recognizing our former players, cheerleaders,
majorettes, color guard and band members. On Thanksgiving we will add our former Homecoming Queens.
The important thing, and we need your help with this - are you planning to attend? Who can you
contact and tell them about this exciting series of events? Please help us contact people from your class who were involved
in Collingswood football activities. We are trying to reach everyone. Please help!
To help finance our celebration we will be conducting a Blue Raffle and a Gold Raffle. All proceeds
from the raffle go directly to the loath anniversary fund. Tickets will be available at the March 8th Athletic
Hall of Fame Dinner held at the Crowne Pointe Hotel.
Our commemorative program will read like a media guide. We would like to feature all of our
great teams and the individuals who made Collingswood the leader in South Jersey football.
