Congratulations to Jaycie Housley. Jaycie was first runner up and prettiest eyes in the Leslie Homecoming pageant. Homecoming events are a means to welcome back alumni and residents to a community. Many towns, and schools plan banquets, parades, pageants and dances for this event. Many of our neighbors participated in the Homecoming events in Leslie and enjoyed time with friends, former classmates and neighbors.

For some, this years homecoming brought on a new meaning as family and friends said farewell to someone they loved. Joy and sadness, life’s sometimes imperfect balance. “Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come,” Author Unknown. The best homecoming event is yet to come.
