BC will honor St. Mary’s during Oct. 7 game

The Butte Central Athletic Department is planning a special event for the October 7th football game against the Polson Pirates.  This year, the Maroons will honor St. Mary’s Catholic Grade School.  Maroon fans are encouraged to wear blue & white to the game that night to commemorate the school colors of St. Mary’s Gaels.

The Maroon Activities Association is selling official “St. Mary’s Gaels” merchandise, featuring short sleeve t-shirts and hoodies.  Proceeds from the sale of merchandise will go to the Butte Central Faculty Endowment, which benefits teachers’ salaries.

Alumni of St. Mary’s Grade School are invited to participate in the Pre-game ceremonies. All Maroon fans and St. Mary’s alumni are also invited to attend a pre-game barbecue at the stadium starting at 6:00pm.  St. Mary’s alumni are invited to join in the procession to carry the “We Are BC” flag to midfield prior to the team taking the field.  St. Mary’s alumni are asked to assemble on the field near the BC Helmet and Torgers Tunnel at 6:30 p.m.  For additional information on the event, call the Foundation Office at 723-6706.

The merchandise can be ordered at the Butte Central Foundation Office at the Maroon Activities Center, by emailing tane.schlte@buttecentralfoundation.org, or by calling the Foundation office at 723-6706.
