Roseville Community Schools adds Special Events to Homecoming
While every Homecoming is unique, this year's Roseville High School Homecoming festivities on Saturday, October 18 will feature some additional events and honors.
Before this Saturday's Homecoming game, the Roseville High School football field will be renamed the 'Bob Eineichner Memorial Stadium', honoring the long-time Roseville resident and school official who passed away in October of 2012. Eineichner was involved in the Roseville Community Schools for over 30 years, including serving on the Board of Education for 23 of those years. He was a member of parent clubs at the elementary level, booster clubs at the secondary level, and was also very involved in the high school auto shop. His four children attended Roseville Schools, and he coached them in a variety of sports over the years. In his final years, Eineichner served as Bond Coordinator for the district. "One of his final projects was overseeing the development of the football field, and he was proud of the way it turned out," said Superintendent John Kment. Kment added, "This is just a small way of saying 'Thank you, Bob, for all of the things you did for Roseville Community Schools.'"
Nashville singer and 2002 Roseville High School graduate Beth Beighey will also be making a special appearance during Homecoming festivities., where she will be singing America the Beautiful before the field dedication ceremony. "I sang The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow from Annie at the Huron Park Talent Show when I was in Kindergarten," Beighey recalls of her early days, "That was my first time on stage." Beighey has toured all over the country, but decided to set up shop in Nashville four years ago, where she plays five days a week at Rippy's, a local bar on Broadway. "I love Nashville, there's always something musically going on," Beighey says. In addition to singing at the RHS Homecoming game, Beighey will be performing that evening at RVille's Roseville Alumni Homecoming Party, at the Dooley's Irish Pub on Gratiot from 6:30pm-9:30pm.
Roseville High School's Homecoming festivities will kick off on October18 at 7:00am with a pancake breakfast. The parade starts at 10:00am, and the football game vs. Cousino starts at 1:00pm.
