The open house will be held from 4:30-6:00 p.m. in the GHS cafeteria. The open house will have memorabilia from our many years as the Goshen Redskins, the unveiling of a design for a commemorative display case in the GHS athletic area, the unveiling of a commemorative plaque and the induction of “the Chief” into the GHS athletic wall of fame. In advance of this event, a commemorative tee shirt has been designed featuring both the Redskin and the new RedHawk mascot and is available for purchase via the internet at http://tinyurl.com/zxtvrdv. If you do not feel comfortable ordering online, phone orders will be taken by calling Lori Martin at GCS central office at (574) 533-8631. All proceeds from these shirts will be designated to supplement the costs of the new display case to honor the Redskin mascot. These shirts will only be available until February 4th so that they can be distributed at the open house on February 20th. After the open house, plans are for the window to re-open for a brief period.

Please sign up by next Wednesday, February 3rd in the GHS athletic office if you are considering attending. You can also see Mr. Kissinger during his lunch duty this Friday to sign up……or he will likely see you. You will need to be there for the entire time, so check out your SRT schedule.
