The Homecoming observance for 2019 featured a special toast to 100 years of Escalon High School. With the school marking its centennial this year, the Grand Marshals for the annual Homecoming Parade were Evelyn Swass, Class of 1947 and Felix Kalin, Class of 1943.

They led off the Friday afternoon parade and there were plenty of new memories to be made, with activities at the high school throughout the week and culminating with a varsity football victory. Other entrants in the parade ranged from a float of past Homecoming Queens to the cross country team, elementary school floats, the high school’s first responder class and the colorguard of the Escalon American Legion Post starting it off, with emcee Robert Swift announcing the entries.

There was plenty of royalty on hand Friday, as one float hosted several past Homecoming Queens, honored at the parade as part of the Escalon High School centennial celebration. Marg Jackson/The Times
