As you know Melrose High School is going to the Super Bowl on December 5. This is an opportunity to showcase all of the great achievements of our football team, our band, our cheerleaders, our student body, and our staff and to celebrate all of our schools and the great things that are happening every day! Let’s celebrate Melrose!
Next week starting on Monday and going on to the game on Saturday will be Melrose Red Raiders week for the City of Melrose. We are planning some great activities:
- Starting on Monday, we will light the City Hall tree in brilliant red and white to celebrate Melrose High School.
- Let’s make this a city-wide event! Via the Chamber of Commerce, I am inviting local businesses to decorate their windows and citizens to decorate their homes to show their Red Raider spirit. E-mail pictures of your decorations to firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet them to the city Twitter account, @CityofMelrose, and we will re-Tweet them and put them on our blog for all to see.
- Follow our blog next week as we do feature stories on the Melrose High School football seniors, band members, and cheerleaders during the run-up to the game.
- Next Friday, December 4, city-wide, from the ECC to Melrose High School, from the Melrose-Wakefield Hospital to all our businesses to City Hall, will be Red and White Day. I encourage everyone in the city to wear red and white. Tweet pictures of your family and co-workers dressed in red and white and we will re-Tweet them and put them on our blog.
- Melrose Red Raider Week will culminate on Friday, December 4, with Home for the Holidays, including the tree lighting on the City Hall lawn at 6 p.m., the stroll down Main Street at 6:30, and the arrival of Santa immediately afterward.
- Let’s get as many people as possible to Gillette Stadium on December 5 as Melrose takes on Dartmouth for the 2015 MIAA Super Bowl.
