We are coming off Labor Day, the last official Summer holiday and unofficial end to the season, however Mother Nature has NOT gotten the memo. While our mornings are a nice tease of what’s to come, the afternoons are still like entering the firey gates of Satan’s hometown. While I am personally ready for all things Autumn, I have to admit that pumpkin spice is definitely not one of them. I know, I know. Such blasphemy should not be passed through the lips but pumpkin is just not one of my favorite scents. I prefer apple harvest and Fall leaves. I don’t do pumpkin spice cider or lattes either. I will, however, throw down on some of Ms. Marilyn’s pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. Hopefully that can be my saving grace.
Let’s get to the news.
The SCCHS Saints took on Cherokee County this past Friday night but fell to the Warriors in a 42-7 loss. This week Saints have their first conference game against the Moody Blue Devils at Home. Admission is $7 at the gate. For your convenience, the concession stand now accepts debit cards!
