It was truly a once in a lifetime event
Our 40-Year Class Reunion events include:
On Friday, June 28, 2019
We had a golf outing at the Fairways of Woodside on Friday, June 28, 2019. The original first tee-time was set for 10:00 a.m. Rain — buckets of it — caused a delay of a couple of hours. After the rain passed, the sun came out and the golfers enjoyed 18 holes of golf in beautiful sun.
We had nearly 100 classmates come together for a social gathering at O’Donoghue’s. It was an event that started strong and didn’t slow down. A handful of classmates closed the pub. It was an evening where everyone had a wonderful time meeting old friends, exchanging stories and laughing about old memories. Some classmates even made new friends.
On Saturday, June 29, 2019
More than two dozen classmates from the graduating class of 1979 along with spouses and friends toured Brookfield Central High School. The tour was led by Mr. Pete Wysocki. It was great fun to see the old building. It’s far from what it was when we were attending class there. It’s undergone more than $100 million worth of modifications and additions since we graduated. While the building has gone through some big changes, it still looked very familiar to everyone who participated in the tour. The most common comment heard as we went from one wing to another was “I remember it being bigger.” The culmination of the tour was a visit to the new varsity gym. Mr. Wysocki was proud to point to the banners hung across the gym walls and said “In most high schools, banners like these represent conference championships. Here at BCHS, they show state champions and championships.” It was good to see the school that was regarded as one of the best in the state when we attended is maintaining that reputation today.
