'Always one of the best things we did'

For chairwoman, affection for Homecoming is deep-rooted


“It’s better than ever this year,” Jennings said of Family Day. “It’s bigger. There are more activities for kids of all ages and there is a pathway of over 100 businesses. Last year we had over 1,000 visitors and this year I expect more because it is a Saturday and parking is free.”

The big finale will be of course, Jennings’ favorite, the Yankee Homecoming parade on Sunday, August 4. This year, Jennings will be marching in it along with the special needs individuals she works with at Turning Point who made her a float.
