Homecoming 2017 will be held October 6-8, 2017, with many opportunities to catch up with old friends and connect with other alumni you may not have met yet.
Some favorite activities return this year; among them will be the Friday Night Dinner--this year focusing on celebrating R-MA's 125th Anniversary. We will host the Memorial Ceremony, the Alumni Luncheon, and the every-popular Homecoming Football Game, which will pit the Yellow Jackets against Fredericksburg Christian Academy. Saturday will conclude with the Alumni Celebration, and for the second year, alumni are invited to return to campus Sunday morning for a 10:00 a.m. worship service at Boggs Chapel.
In place of the Homecoming Parade this year, we will have the 125th Anniversary Pass & Review Formation, modeled after the full retreat formation that many of our alumni will recall from their days here. The cadets will form up in front of Sonner-Payne Hall and march past the reviewing stand at Melton Gym, over to the Crow Hall parking lot. After Saturday's Memorial Ceremony, alumni are to meet up under the yellow tent on the north side of Sonner-Payne; they will be directed where to form up from there.
