TC homecoming packed with events

Tabor College alumni and friends are invited to Homecoming 2003 from Oct. 16 to 19. This year’s theme is “Called to Greatness.”

The Tabor drama and music departments will open festivities with a performance of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” The musical is a lively and entertaining portrayal of the biblical Joseph story (see Page 10).

The Homecoming Festival Golf Classic will begin Friday morning at Reflection Ridge in Wichita and will be followed by the Festival Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Wichita.

Saturday morning activities will include a quilt show at Parkview Mennonite Brethren Church, MusicFest, featuring Tabor music ensembles, a 2-mile and 5K fun run, men’s and women’s alumni tennis, class reunions, children’s activities for preschool-aged children through age 8, and a barbecue.

Afternoon activities include a varsity football game against Friends University at 2 p.m. at Reimer Field. Rolland “Bay” Lawrence’s football jersey will be retired during halftime, a first in Tabor history.

Alumni soccer will follow the football game at 5 p.m., along with the quilt auction at Parkview and the Dutch Supper. The supper will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and will be held in the Tabor Gymnasium.

At 7 p.m. the alumni baseball team will take the field for another night of home-field advantage against the 2003-04 baseball team.

Following the Saturday performance of “Joseph” will be a coffee house in the Schlicting Center at 9 p.m. A noon buffet will be offered in the cafeteria on Sunday.

The final activity of the weekend will be the Jeremy Camp concert. Camp is a new Christian recording artist best known for his two hit songs, “I Still Believe” and “Understand.” The concert will begin at 7:30 in the Tabor Chapel-Auditorium, and doors will open at 6:30 p.m. General admission seating is $10, and seating is limited.
