Did you know that by purchasing your Thanksgiving Day football tickets in Melrose prior to game day, all those proceeds come back to Melrose? (It works the same in Wakefield for you Warrior fans.) Receipts for tickets purchased at the game are split 50-50 between Melrose and Wakefield. So if you think that turkey will taste better with a side order of Red Raider pride, head to Gray’s Appliance, the Mayor’s office, or the Athletic Director’s Office of the Melrose Public Schools before the big day. Not only will you get a discount off the game-day price, you’ll be keeping 100% of your ticket price in our fair city!
