Public invited to Friday Night Kick-Off
The public is invited to come out and meet the 2017 Atlanta Rabbits varsity football team next week, and also asked to attend an open house at the newly constructed band hall right next to the stadium.
The Friday Night Kick-Off event will be held Aug. 18, and will begin with a pep rally and watermelon at 6 p.m. in the Atlanta High School Gym.
The open house will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Band Hall, the new home of the “Big Bad Band From Rabbitland.”
There will be an AHS Band March Off at the football field at 7:30 p.m.
Price Hardware is the kick-off event’s official sponsor.
Crews with Altech, Inc. of Texarkana recently put the finishing touches on the new 12,000-square-foot band hall, which has the space to accommodate the 150-plus students who participate in band.
The previous facility was built for approximately 55 students.
Voters approved a tax rate increase to fund construction of the new facility.
