Contrary to popular rumor, however, the planned changes — moving what has been a Friday morning pep rally to 6 p.m., and to Raider Stadium instead of inside Richmond Senior High School gymnasium — will do nothing to take away from the festivities. In fact, the changes could rejuvenate and refreshen the annual event.

On Friday morning, meanwhile, Principal Keith McKenzie, fellow administrators, staff and faculty welcomed an hour-long celebration of Raider Magic.

Nearly overwhelmed with green and gold, the school JROTC squad, the choir and cheerleaders took center stage around the introduction of all 35 members of the Homecoming Court.

The Homecoming parade in downtown Rockingham begins at 4 p.m. at First United Methodist Church on East Washington Street. The route travels one-fourth of a mile to Harrington Square, where Raider cheerleaders will lead the crowd in another pep rally.
