A new season of Emmetsburg Lady E-Hawk basketball begins tonight (Thursday) as the Lady E-Hawks will host Bishop Garrigan's Golden Bears to play for Pride - the Iowa Hall of Pride's new community service initiative, the "Iowa Hall of Pride Challenge."
As part of the Pride Challenge, Toys for Tots has been chosen as a community service project. The Toys for Tots program provides toys for needy children during the holiday season.
The Pride Challenge is highlighted by "Pride Scrimmages," where participating schools are permitted to use one of their three allotted basketball scrimmages to play a live game under all normal game conditions, although the game does not count on a team's record.
Tip off for the JV and Varsity scrimmages will be at 5:45 p.m. tonight, Thursday, Nov. 15, at Emmetsburg High School.
The Iowa Hall of Pride opened to the public on February 23, 2005. The interactive museum imparts a sense of place to all who visit and preserves our rich Iowa heritage. The museum features dozens of exhibits that engage the visitor in experiencing the stories of Iowa's communities and their heroes. There is a strong emphasis on education and how it has helped shape the people of Iowa.
