If you’ve ever been associated with Northern Essex Community College—as a student, member of the faculty or an interested member of the community—the college’s perhaps first-ever Homecoming may be of interest.

The Homecoming, on Saturday, Oct. 14, from noon to 4 p.m., on the Haverhill Campus, includes a doubleheader featuring the NECC Knights against Southern Maine Community College with games at 10 a.m. and noon; games and face painting for children; a performance by country music singer Thomasina Glenn from 12:30 to 2 p.m.; and a free cookout from noon to 2 p.m.

“We want to bring families on our beautiful campus to celebrate the fall,” said Mike McCarthy, the college’s vice president of administration, who recently began overseeing college athletics.

Northern Essex students will have the opportunity to win a semester of free textbooks by competing in the half-court basketball challenge. There will also be a pie-eating contest, alumni home run derby and alumni baseball game.

Those interested in attending are asked to register online, by visiting the college website and filling out a form here.
