Homecoming Festival a Chance to Connect with Community
By Matthew Hughes (NRL Vic Media)
This Saturday the 27th of July, the Truganina Rabbitohs will be hosting their annual Homecoming Festival at Clearwood Drive Reserve from 1-4pm.
The festival is the culmination of a weeks-worth of activities aimed at reconnecting with past Rabbitohs members and reaching out to the broader community.
The festival will feature food stalls, live entertainment and high-quality football between Truganina and Altona men’s and women’s sides.
As this season marks five years since the founding of the Rabbitohs in 2015, there will be presentations dedicated to founding players still at the club, held later in the day.
There will also be a presentation acknowledging Tasia Seumanufagai who recently signed for the New Zealand Warriors for this year’s NRLW competition.
Rabbitohs Club President Greer Haintz is hoping to see a big turnout for the event.
“Everyone is welcome to attend, especially people from the broader community,” she said.
“That could be people who use our facilities during the week or walk their dogs through the oval.”
“We would also love to see our opponents for the day stay around for the festival.”
Truganina’s first grade women’s team hosts Altona at 12.55 pm, while the men play their corresponding fixture at 2.10 pm. Both matches promise to be entertaining contests with all four teams contending for this year’s premiership.
NRL Victoria encourages everyone to attend what promises to be a fun, family friendly day for people of all ages.
