Roxboro Community School (RCS) will host Bulldog Day today at RCS, from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

This annual event supports the RCS athletic program. It brings in money that helps pay for officials, the costs of the field and game supplies.

“Hopefully, this year will be the best,” said Pete Tuck, RCS athletic director. “We expect more participation than ever for a fun-filled day.”

The day will start with the annual 5k Run/Walk at 9 a.m. T-shirts will be available.

There will be barbecued chicken plates with two choices of vegetables, a roll, and dessert for $8.

Popcorn, cotton candy, lemonade, and homemade ice cream will also be provided.

There are plenty of activities planned for Bulldog Day. There will be a car wash, water slide, grass volleyball tournament, a DJ, performances by RCS cheer, and a cornhole tournament.

Student athletes and others will also be making calls to parents, family and friends to ask for pledges for the Raise the Roof capital campaign.

Work began this week on renovating the final 30,000 square feet of the historic Roxboro Cotton Mill building.

When work is finished in eight to 10 months, the championship RCS volleyball and basketball teams will have a home gym in which to play games and host tournaments.

Art, music, dance and theater students will have a multipurpose area and stage for performances.

Healthful living classes will have a larger area for workouts.

Plus, the community will have a new space for family reunions and other gatherings.
