The Minden Board of Education met on August 15 for its monthly meeting.
Highlighting the meeting was the move of the Minden Homecoming festivities to Oct. 12 and Oct. 13 instead of the original dates of Oct. 5-6.
The move was precipitated by the schedule conflict of having the same Oct. 5 date as Minden softball district tournament held in Gothenburg. Minden High School Principal Don Hosick and Activities Director Phil Hoyt indicated that parents and coaches asked for the switch so those kids involved with softball would be able to be involved with the homecoming activities on Friday. Hoyt said all the coaches were on board with the switch along with the band. Also that week there would also be another activity besides the football game since there is a home volleyball contest on Thursday. Motion carried unanimously.
Principal Hosick had another item on the agenda to discuss with the board – the Backpack Program.
