PERRIN – The varsity basketball girls will be going on to the playoffs. I’m not sure when or where they will be playing. Their final regular game will be Tuesday, at Poolville. The boy’s varsity will play their last game Feb. 8 at Ranger.
Spring must be on the way if softball/baseball is beginning. The Lady Pirate’s softball team will play their first game of the season at Alvord on Saturday, Feb. 9, with games beginning at 11 a.m. Another scrimmage is scheduled on Monday, Feb. 11.
The first Pirate baseball scrimmage will be at Valley View on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 5 p.m.
The Perrin High School Treasurettes will be hosting a Valentine’s Ball fundraiser on Friday, Feb. 15, in the Perrin High School Cafeteria. The time for the Valentine’s Dance is 8 p.m. to midnight. The cost is $5 per person or $8 couple. Cupid has requested semi-formal attire. Anyone not attending Perrin CISD must be signed-up in the high school office no later than Wednesday, Feb. 13, to attend the ball.
The Treasurettes will also sell flowers, balloons and stuffed animals. The prices of these items vary. All orders will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. The dance team girls will make deliveries throughout the day on Valentine’s Day. Please send orders, along with money (checks should be made to PWCISD), to the high school office, elementary school office or to Mrs. Burke’s room. For further information or to check prices on flowers, contact Mrs. Burke at the school.
At the Chili and Salsa Cook-Off, at the Perrin First Baptist church last Sunday, winners were Pat Wright who placed first for her chili and Jadyn White placing first for her green salsa. There were several entries, some exotic. This was a fundraiser for the church’s youth summer camp.
