(Beaver Dam) Its homecoming weekend in Beaver Dam. Hundreds upon hundreds of spectators donned in green and gold from lined the streets of downtown Beaver Dam Friday for the high school’s annual homecoming parade. School spirit was high as local businesses chalked their windows with slogans supporting the Golden Beavers and students with died green and yellow hair screamed while little kids scurried for candy. There were floats from various student organizations, the homecoming court and the Golden Beavers football team. Incoming Superintendent Mark DiStefano says there was a high amount of school spirit this week with students really involved and the administration doing a great job organizing activities. He says it is especially poignant that the dedication of the newly completed school kicked-off the week of homecoming activities.
Beaver Dam Police Chief John Kreuziger is encouraging parents not to serve alcohol to minors at homecoming parties this weekend. Kreuziger told us yesterday on WBEV’s Community Comment parents who supply alcohol can find themselves subject to a citation for Furnishing Alcohol to a Minor which could be bumped up to a criminal offense if an injury occurs. A parent in that situation could also open themselves up to lawsuit. If there is a disturbance caused, the chief says parents could get issued Disorderly Conduct as a Party to a Crime. Kreuziger says it’s just best off not to serve alcohol because you truly do not know what’s going to happen when you mix alcohol with minors. The Beaver Dam High School Homecoming Dance is tonight.
