The annual Washington Redskins Homecoming festivities are far more than what is seen before and during the game on Sunday.
It’s an opportunity for the former Redskins greats to visit old friends at the facility in the week leading up to the game and also do a little community work while they’re at it.
This time, the Redskins Alumni helped build a playground in Washington, D.C. That night, they met again for the Homecoming Alumni Reception — a night full of memories and good friends. Oh yeah, and football.
