Homecoming was the main item on the agenda for the Shirley City Council at its May 13 meeting.

Treasurer Melissa Worthing said the city has received $750 in sponsorship money, and that as the Platinum sponsor First Service bank will get its name on the official 2013 Homecoming T-shirts.

The council set prize money for the winning parade floats at $200 for first place, $100 for second and $50 for third. The parade will be at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, and Councilman Floyd Haley will be grand marshal. No four-wheelers will be allowed in the parade unless they are pulling a float.

The Lucky Ducky races will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday, according to Margaret Earnhart, and Darla Privitt said sign-up for kids games will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday.

The council decided that there would be a seven-day limit for campers using the free campsites. They also will replace a broken window in the Community Center and repair some wiring at the museum.

The council’s next regularly scheduled meeting will be June 10.
