Join Clarion Football Players and their Families honoring our Veterans this coming Saturday (December 14th).
The Clarion Football Program is a family; our family, a part of our community.
Clarion Football Boosters purpose is to foster a spirit of loyalty among alumni, athletes and friends of Clarion Football; to obtain financial support for the various expenses associated with the sport and the needs of its athletes. But more than raising money, the Booster Club fosters a spirit of giving back and development of the complete athlete, – academics, athletics, service and stewardship.
Being a Clarion Football player is more than on the field performance, it is about who we are off the field too. Our players develop a lifelong connection between the schools, its alumni and our community. Football is a brotherhood that remains long after graduation.
This past year, our athletes and their families completed several community service projects and our final event is going to be held this coming Saturday (December 14th) at 11:30 am, meeting at Clarion Cemetery.
Last January, Clarion Football partnered with Wreaths Across America to recognize and honor all Clarion Veteran, by placing a wreath on their grave site, during this national day of remembrance. The original ceremony started in Arlington National Cemetery and today expands to over 1,200 cemeteries nationwide and 4 to 5 overseas.
Clarion Football extends and invitation to all fans, friends, and community members interested in participating with the 2019 Clarion Football athletes in placing a wreath to honor and remember our hometown heroes, this Saturday. Please join us and participate with the 85 athletes and their families in placing over 1,000 wreaths at the Clarion Cemetery, including the Immaculate Conception Parish grave sites. This is one experiene you do not want to miss.
Thank you for supporting our mission, Team, Tradition and me, Clarion Football. Tradition never graduates!
