Homecoming week for Millbank High School means excitement and romance are in the air. Students are giddy at the prospect of dancing the night away to the sounds of Stu and the Millbank Magic, just like their parents did. And this year's Homecoming has additional meaning because of its tribute to the people injured at last year's Homecoming. Last year's king and queen will greet this year's court and show how well they have healed.

Homecoming means even more to Millbank than a reminder of youth. It means value and savings at many of the city's finest shops. While some bargains are for the teenagers attending Saturday's dance, others offered in the city are open to all residents. Here is a summary of the specials in Millbank throughout Homecoming week.
