James River had a wet and rainy homecoming last week, but only the field (and the people) were dampened, not the spirits. And, just as we did for Lord Botetourt’s homecoming, we have a lot more online, so let’s get to it, shall we?
We have . . . .
* Paparazzi photos from the homecoming dance. That’s Brooke Ware, Courtney Woodson, Taylor Statome and Dakota Kennedy at left, by the way.
* Photos from the homecoming game (including both action on the field and the halftime ceremonies.)
But let’s not stop there. Do you have homecoming photos of your own? You can share at firstname.lastname@example.org
Those aren’t the only online extras this week. In each week’s issue of The Botetourt View, we always send readers here for “more.” Here are the links to what we have this week. (And keep in mind, we update this site sometimes a dozen times a day, so, really, we have a lot more!)
* More photos of Botetourt people at the Sarah Palin rally. (By the way, if you still have photos of Botetourt people there, we’ll still take ‘em. And we never got any of Botetourt people at the Barack Obama rally in Botetourt, but we’re still open for those, too.)
* Botetourt’s voting history
* Cathy Benson’s Terrific Tuesday column (she was also at the Palin rally)
* Photos from the Cloverdale Elementary mock election (We also have James River’s mock election, too)
* Photos from Red Ribbon Week at Read Mountain Middle School
