Cody High School celebrates Homecoming week starting Monday, and this year a couple of the signature events are going to be even bigger to make up for the limitations imposed last year.

“Since we didn’t have a substantial homecoming, not much last year, we want to do a bigger bonfire, parade this year,” student body president Bradley Fick told city council members at a recent meeting. “We are going to spend more money, do a little more, have it go longer.

Added to that, this year the Broncs are hosting county rival Powell in football Sept. 24. Mayor Matt Hall said he’d talk to Powell Mayor John Wetzel about a friendly side bet between the two towns.

I think you pulled the schedule off the high school’s website, which seems to be displaying a schedule from last year. The football game is at 6pm vs Buffalo. Powell is playing Douglas today.
