CHELSEA – A community pep rally will be held at Chelsea High School on Friday, Aug. 12 in celebration of Chelsea’s jump to the 7A classification.

The Chelsea Hornet Quarterback Club is sponsoring the event and it is open to the public.

“We felt that it would be a great way to bring the community together, kick off the school year and bring in other high school organizations,” Quarterback Club Communications Coordinator Heather Brooks said.

The event will include food trucks, music and a kids zone, with the food trucks opening at 5:30 p.m.

In the kids zone, there will be adult supervision alongside activities such as a bouncy house, a dunking booth and a bull ride.

This event is a moment of celebration for Chelsea, but it is also a moment to bring people together.

“Historically, all the organizations tend to fight for their money rather than working together,” Brooks said.

All proceeds raised from this event are going to the kids to help them and their respective organizations, Brooks said.

Tents will be set up for the various booster clubs. In addition, Brooks said the Quarterback Club will be selling homemade goodies, and all proceeds go back to the club.

People will have time to eat and socialize; then, the pep rally will start at 6:30 p.m.

During the pep rally they will present all the football teams, from the youth organizations up to high school level. Head coach Todd Cassity will then have the floor to introduce the other coaches and announce the team.

The fanfare for the teams will be accompanied by the band and cheerleaders.

Brooks said they will also take a moment to spotlight the seniors as the leaders of the team.

“It is a big jump for our school because we have had so much growth in our community,” Brooks said in reference to the new classification. “For us to make this jump and allow the boys to compete, we need everyone’s support. We can’t do this alone.”

Those interested can follow the Chelsea Hornet Quarterback Club on Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date.

Brooks said the club is hoping this first event is successful and that it becomes an annual community event.
