Bordentown Regional School District Board of Education
United States of America

This year the Thanksgiving Day Football Game will be played on Wednesday night, prior to Thanksgiving. It has been a tradition for both schools to play on Thanksgiving morning. The school made the decision to change the date, without consulting or asking the opinion of the coaches, athletes, band members, staff, alumni or community. We would like to have the game reinstated to Thanksgiving morning, so those of us in the Community can continue our traditions that we have been taking part in for the last 15+ years.
