From Galion City Schools

The Galion City School District has announced the schedule for the much-anticipated 2023 Connections and Homecoming Weekend. This annual event is a time-honored tradition that brings together alumni, students, and the Galion community to celebrate school spirit, achievements, and the shared history of the district.

Thursday, October 12: Old Fashioned Pep Rally & Bonfire

The excitement kicks off on Thursday evening at 6:45 p.m. at the Practice Football Field (behind the YMCA, north of the HS baseball field), where an Old Fashioned Pep Rally will get spirits roaring. This lively event will feature a celebratory bonfire and a performance by the Galion High School and Alumni Band, cheers from our cheerleaders and attendance from our fall sports athletes from youth to high school and our homecoming court. Enjoy hot dogs provided by the Galion Booster Club and water supplied by the Galion Alumni Association (weather permitting).

It’s a night filled with energy and nostalgia that you won’t want to miss.
