DANVILLE, KY—On Saturday, Sept. 12, Centre College welcomes the campus and local community to Community Appreciation Night. This celebration will kick off the first Centre home football game of the season. The football game begins at 7:30 p.m.; a men's soccer game also begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free to both games. (Admission to Centre soccer games is always free.)
Free light refreshments will be offered beginning at 6:30 p.m. on Sutcliffe Hall's lawn. The rain location for refreshments is inside Sutcliffe Hall.
This summer, Farris Stadium, home to the Colonel football team, was updated with new artificial field turf. Last year, due to a generous donation, lights were installed at Farris Stadium, allowing the Colonels to begin playing games at night last season.
In addition, beginning last year, the first home football game of the season is designated "Football Alumni Night," in which a particular Centre team is honored. Last year, Centre honored the College's first CAC championship team. This year, the 1984 CAC champs will be honored during the 25th anniversary of their championship season. The team will be honored during halftime of the game.
