Alumni Association will honor 56 at Homecoming ceremony

by Anne Krapfl
Iowa State's 1999 Homecoming celebration hits full stride this weekend when students paint Victory Lane north of Jack Trice Stadium. The Homecoming golf outing also is Sunday morning; tee times begin at 9 a.m. at Veenker golf course.

Students have selected "Inventing our Tomorrows" as their theme this year. Buttons, which double as admission to some events next week, are $1 and available at the Student Alumni Association office, 158 Memorial Union.

The second Homecoming Blitz Build, a cooperative project with Story County Habitat for Humanity, begins Monday, Oct. 25, and continues through Friday. Faculty and staff are invited to volunteer for a shift at the site on South Kellogg Avenue, but are asked to call 4-8488 beforehand for an assignment. This year's building project is a four-plex residence and will serve homeless people in Ames.

Homecoming events on Friday, Oct. 29, begin at 5:15 p.m. with the step-off parade. The route runs from the Towers residence halls to the campanile, via Welch Avenue. More than 40 units are registered for the parade. A pep rally begins at 7 p.m. at the campanile and will include the semifinal round of the traditional "Yell Like Hell" student cheer competition.

The Alumni Association will present its annual awards to 56 faculty, staff and alumni during a 7:30 p.m. ceremony Friday in Benton Auditorium, Scheman. The university community is invited.
