On a night all about the stars, not many were shining outside of the 1993 Homecoming dance.

According to the 1993-94 MCHS yearbook, the sky was cloudy on Oct. 9, but students attending the dance that night still spent their time underneath the stars.

Star Gazing was the theme decided on by the student council for the week of Minooka’s 1993 Homecoming.

The week of Oct. 4 to 8 started off strong with the pep assembly that, strangely enough, featured a “flex-off” that had upperclassmen boys showing off their shirtless bodies to the entire student body. It is not clear how this event was received, but the fact that it is not the “annual flex-off” might reveal the public’s opinion on the event.

After removing their clothes to show spirit, students, in classic spirit week fashion, donned themed outfits throughout the week. Students got cozy on Monday for Pajama Day, repped their favorite bands on Concert Tee Day, prepared for the silver screen on Movie Star Day, showed their age on Class Color Day, and joined the Indian Nation on Orange and Black day, all in an effort to build excitement for the upcoming dance and Homecoming football game.

When Saturday finally arrived, the wait was over. For the football team, it was time for the big game against Batavia, which the Indians lost 28-6. For attendees, it was time to take pictures, make memories, dance, and star gaze. Hopes were high for the dance, and once the event began, no one was disappointed.

“With fanciful streamers dangling from the ceiling and balloons floating through the air, the night was almost magical,” Jennifer Goedke said about the dance then.

The night of stars went off without a hitch, and the two biggest stars of the night were King Rhett Downing and Queen Brandy Butts.
