All ETSU home-coming celebrations are in the mid-fall when East Tennessee reaches it’s most beautiful time of the year as the trees are all changing color! The year 1973 was when Panpan and Steven got a chance to appreciate not only the color change but also the home-coming decorations, which were more interesting to them. It turned out that, starting about that time, these decorations gradually decreased in popularity. They became less elaborate and eventually faded out. I do not recall exactly when the decoration competition was no longer part of home-coming activities, but it is not there any more!
