Del Oro send-off planned for Thursday
By: Staff Report
3 p.m., Thursday in Downtown Loomis
A sendoff is being organized for the Del Oro High School football team at 3 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 15, as they head down to Southern California to compete in the Division II Bowl Game, in Carson. The school will have a rally for students, then they expect the bus carrying the players to leave the school and head down Taylor Road at about 3 p.m. School officials are hoping the community comes out and lines Taylor Road to cheer the players on as they head through downtown Loomis. Del Oro leadership students will be distributing signs for well-wishers to wave. The bus will take Taylor and Horseshoe Bar Roads before entering Interstate 80. Parking for well-wishers is available at the Loomis Train Depot, behind the Post Office, at Loomis Grammar School and on either side of the Blue Goose Fruit Shed.
