The Butte Central Athletic Department is planning a special event for the September 2nd football game against Browning. This year, the Maroons will honor the St Ann’s Catholic Grade School. Maroon fans are encouraged to wear Gold and Gray to the game that night to commemorate the school colors of the St Ann’s Grade School.
The St Ann’s Grade School opened in 1903 and operated until 1969, when all of Butte’s Catholic Grade Schools closed.
The Maroon Activities Association is selling official St Ann’s Tigers 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 the St Ann’s Grade School are invited to participate in pre-game ceremonies. All Maroon fans and St Ann’s alumni are also invited to attend a pre-game barbecue at the stadium starting at 6:00 PM. St Ann’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, and are asked to assemble on the field near Torger’s Tunnel at 6:30pm. For additional information on the event, please call the Butte Central Foundation Office.
The merchandise can be ordered at the Butte Central Foundation Office or at Universal Athletics. If you have questions, please call the Foundation office at 406-723-6706.
