The Butte Central Athletic Department is planning a special event for the Oct. 6 football game against the Hamilton Broncs.
This year, the Maroons will honor St. Lawrence Catholic Grade School. Maroon fans are encouraged to wear blue and gold to the game that night to commemorate the school colors of St. Lawrence’s Grade School.
The St. Lawrence Grade School opened in 1895 and operated until 1967, when it merged with St. Mary’s Grade School and became St. Raymond School until 1969 when all of Butte’s Catholic Grade Schools closed.
The Maroon Activities Association is selling official “St. Lawrence Hilltoppers” merchandise, featuring short sleeve and long 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. Lawrence’s Grade School are invited to participate in pre-game ceremonies. All Maroon fans and St. Lawrence’s alumni are also invited to attend a pre-game barbecue at the stadium starting at 5:45 p.m. St. Lawrence’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. Lawrence’s alumni are asked to assemble on the field near Torger’s Tunnel at 6:30 p.m. For additional information on the event, please call the Butte Central Foundation Office.
The merchandise can be ordered at the Butte Central Foundation Office at the Maroon Activities Center or by calling the Foundation office at 723-6706.
