Homecoming week all revolves around the Homecoming Game. All week, students get ready to cheer until they lose their voices. However before the game, clubs get together and sell many different treats. This year was not going to be the exception.

The first stand I visited with was the French Club. As many know they have been very involved in fundraising money for fellow student, Ana Lopez. The tailgate was no exception. The French Club sold crepes with various fillings, creampuffs, diabolo menthe (a French drink consisting of Twist soda and mint syrup), aguas frescas in the flavors Horchata and Jamaica (Hibiscus), and pain du chocolat (French bread spread with chocolate). All of these were sold as donations to Ana. Not only that, but they also kept selling the Hope rings.

The next stand I visited was the BPA stand. There I was greeted by Mrs. Fullen and Mrs. Peterson. They were selling many different types of baked goods such as cookies. They were also selling many different types of drinks such as sodas. This fundraiser was mostly to be used as finance to help in competitions.

Chess and Gamer Club were also present. They were selling cookies, cookie dough bites and donuts. Chess Club was fundraising to get to tournaments. All the while, Gamer Club was fundraising toward many new games, they are wanting to try new games this year.

The Migrant Program was also there. This program is all about helping the new families that work in the Jerome Area and work in agriculture. They were selling a wide diversity of delicious treats. They were selling pozole, gelatin, pie, many fruit desserts, and durritos.

The final stand I visited was the Bizzy Bee. This was a family business. They were also selling a variety of treats, including salted pretzels, popcorn, shaved ice, and caramelized apples.

After grabbing a quick treat and hanging out with some friends, it was finally time to watch the game.
