Come to the next Seneca Past and Present meeting on Monday, October 13, 2014 at 6:00pm.  We will be discussing upcoming activities.  The meeting will be held in the large cafeteria.  See you there!
Football Alumni Activities


We will have an Alumni tent for the homecoming game versus PRP on October 10th.  The class of '64 is having their 50th reunion and is emphasizing that game.  The class of '62 is having their 52nd reunion the same weekend and is also emphasizing attendance from their class at that game.  Everybody come out and support the Redhawks!


At the Seneca vs. Butler game on October 24th, we would like to honor not only the senior players but also any former Seneca High School football players.  We will also have an alumni tent at this game.


All football games begin at 7:30 pm.

Fantasy Football Fans - This is for you!!!

Do you play Fantasy Football?  Would you like to help find a cure for Breast Cancer? 


Now you can do both at the same time with Seneca's one week fantasy football game raising money for Susan G. Komen and Breast Cancer Awareness.

Compete with the other Seneca fans in this one week game and help us end Breast Cancer once and for all!

Deadline for joining the game is October 12.  That day is the day games will take place.  The draft will be open on Tuesday, October 7.  Join now and an email will be sent to you when the draft is open.  Just head to to join in!   

Bingo Raffle Items - HELP!!!

We have a UK basketball signed by John Calipari, Tom Leach and Mitch Barnhart.  The basketball is also signed by UK All-Americans, Kyle Macy, Louie Dampier, Jack "Goose" Givens, Mike Pratt, but also signed by other outstanding former players, Jim Andrews, Jeff Sheppard, Winston Bennett and Dale Barnstable (Dale was on the first UK NCAA championship team in 1948 and 1949).  He is also the father of Priscilla and Patricia Barnstable - Seneca graduates from the class of 1969.  This basketball will be raffled off at Seneca Past & Present Bingo at 4 sessions over 2 weeks.


We also have a U of L basketball just waiting for Rick Pitino's signature.  If any alumni are connected to Rick Pitino and are willing to get his signature please let us know.  In fact, if any alums are UL ticket holders and plan on attending the UL Basketball Tip-Off Luncheon on October 20, it would be a perfect opportunity to get that signature!  We can also get Denny Crum's signature and we have commitment from Phil Bond, former All-American player at U of L to sign this ball.  He can get Keith Williams and Tony Kimbro signatures (both former U of L players and also Seneca grads).  We would like to get Wes Unseld to sign if possible.  This ball will also be raffled off at SPP Bingo.


Both basketball raffles will be held during basketball season and before the UK vs. U of L basketball game on Saturday, December 27th at the Yum Center.
