For Peetz Sake/Homecoming
For Peetz Sake Days is an annual celebration, usually held in September or October. In the fall of 1969, Peetz School held the first Homecoming parade, and several years later, the Town of Peetz decided to piggy-back on the school's Homecoming celebration and dubbed it
For Peetz Sake Days.
The Peetz Lions Club is instrumental in coordinating the events each year, along with Peetz Community Church, Sacred Heart Church, Logan County Farmers Union, Peetz Telephone Co., Peetz Town Board, Peetz Fire Dept., The Hot Spot, and American Legion & Auxiliary. The Lions Club names the parade marshals each year. Events include a free meal, a craft show & bake sale, root beer floats, kids' games, a free breakfast, parade, and horseshoe tournament.
Sept. 19-21, 2024
to be Announced
Peetz School Student Council chooses the parade theme each year and organizes the parade west of the school on Saturday morning.
In 2023, For Peetz Sake became a 3-day event with the free meal and peewee football on Thursday evening, the high school football game and crowning of Homecoming Royalty on Friday night, and the Fireman's Breakfast, the parade, For Peetz Sake Day events, and the Homecoming dance on Saturday.
Tentatively, 2024 will have the same schedule.
Stay tuned for updates!
The Peetz Lions Club names the Parade Marshals for the Peetz Sake Day Parade. Two deserving members of the community lead the parade and are honored at halftime of the Homecoming football game.
