McIntosh enjoys homecoming parade

All the people watching the McIntosh homecoming parade this year got an extra special treat.   The parade was led by the award-winning band, the good looking homecoming court, and the spirited cheerleaders and Chiefettes.  In addition, nearly 25 other clubs and businesses joined in the fun of decorating a float, truck or golf cart. They all threw candy and beads to the onlookers.  It was a true community event.  Pictured is the freshman football team at McIntosh.
