2014-10-30 10:43:44 - By: Maddie Hamburg, Mt. Horeb High School Senior
Club Unify got off to a strong start this school year with students gathering after school to plan for the homecoming parade. We played get-to-know-you games for our new club members, shared snacks and brainstormed ideas about our part of the parade. Our big goal was to stand out to the community so together, we decided to tie-dye T-shirts and wear them in the parade. The week before homecoming, we held another meeting after school and had a tie-dye party. It was a blast!
