Oct. 24, 2018: The “Broncos Together” initiative was born of the PTA Athletic Council’s desire to renew the spirit and widen the collective that is a Bronxville Bronco..
This past week was Bronxville’s homecoming week, and Bronco supporters were out in full force. The game day flags and feather flags were up and proudly waving, and game night lights were in position on the field in anticipation of upcoming games. And for the first time, homecoming week banners hung in the Bronxville business district, reaching out to the Bronxville community, inviting everyone to be a part of the spirit that is Homecoming.
Athletes, students, family, faculty, alumni, fans, and neighbors all joined in celebrating homecoming, and the Bronxville PTA Athletic Council would like to thank the Bronxville community, including everyone who donated time, energy, products, and services to an amazingly well-attended and exciting homecoming Week celebration.
Thank you to the local business donors for the incredibly generous and delicious food donations to the Bronco Barn & Grill, including the Eastchester Odyssey Diner, Lange's Delicatessen of Bronxville, Mini's Prime Meats & Specialties, Park Place Bagels, and Scarborough Fair. These delicious meals were enjoyed by all of the Bronco fans in the stands and helped raise money to support the Athletic Council programs throughout the year. Thanks to Pete’s Park Place Tavern and Gino’s Pizzeria & Restaurant for offering team dinners to the winners of spirit competitions during homecoming. The PTA Athletic Council is so grateful for your generosity!

We could not do this without you, a million thanks!
