Revere Fall Extravaganza planned for Sept. 17
RICHFIELD — The Revere High School (RHS) PTSA will host its annual Fall Extravaganza Sept. 17 with activities for families and opportunities to support the district’s students.
Activities will begin at 5 p.m. in the RHS parking lot and will conclude around 8 p.m. in the stadium after the introduction of the middle school fall sports teams and youth football and soccer teams.
Featured during the event will be games for all ages, a sale of sportswear and spirit items, raffles, entertainment, food and beverages. All activities and sales are sponsored by student organizations and sports teams as fundraisers, so there is a separate charge for each, according to organizers.
Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for students, with all proceeds benefiting the programs and activities of RHS PTSA. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held in the high school gymnasium.
For more information, call 330-659-4750.
