Football tailgate to be held

Advanced Hearing Solutions will be sponsoring a football tailgate in front of Wimer Stadium from 5 to 6:30 p.m. today before the Elkins vs. Buckhannon-Upshur football game.

The tailgate will feature pork barbeque sandwiches with baked beans and chips for $5, and assorted drinks for $1 each.

All of the profits from the tailgate will benefit the Elkins Booster Club.

In addition to the food, representatives from Pierpont Community and Technical College will be on hand to speak to individuals interested in learning more about the courses and fields it offer.

There also will be an appearance by the Elkins High School Alumni Band, which will participate in the pre-game parade as Elkins observes Homecoming.

Advanced Hearing Solutions is located at 307 11th Street in Elkins.

It also has offices in Buckhannon, Marlinton, Parsons and Lewisburg.

The Elkins Booster Club is a fundraising organization that helps with travel and other costs associated with Elkins High School athletic teams.

WBOY will be breaking in to its 5 p.m. newscast to show the tailgate and there also may be an appearance by Snowbird, the station’s weather mascot.
