When it comes to activities local students look forward to each autumn, Homecoming probably tops the list.

In Forest Grove, that meant a Thursday parade and football game, which the Vikings won 21-14 over Century High School. The theme of the dance was 'Finding Neverland.'

Gaston's gridiron duel happened one day later, when the Greyhounds beat Vernonia High 32-6. 'Life is a Dance' was the theme of the Saturday dance.
