The evening continues on at 7 p.m. at the football field with a performance by the Ava High School marching band, an appearance by the Ava cheerleaders and some fantastic football action by the 2010 Ava Football Bears.

All proceeds from this and every Booster Club event go right back into the Ava athletic programs.
There is a fee of $20 for each family to join the Booster Club and new members will be accepted at each of these scrimmages.
