It’s Time for Us to Get Together & Have Some Fun!
It seems like yesterday that we were attending school at Brookfield Central. Time has flown by and it’s hard to believe that our 40-Year Reunion is only a few months away.
Our class reunion is a great way for all of us to get together, catch up and have fun. In 40 years, a lot has changed in our lives but the friendships we made in high school remain. The reunion will be a great opportunity to reconnect with friends that we’ve lost touch with over the decades and to create new relationships with classmates we may not have had the chance to know while we were in school.
Our reunion celebration will take place over two days: June 28 & 29, 2019. It’s been so long since we’ve seen each other that two days of fun may not be enough! We’ve got several activities already set and others still in the works. We think this will be a truly memorable celebration.
Registration is open. Your ticket(s) must be purchased by May 31, 2019. There will be no tickets sold at the door. Paying early provides us with the cash flow needed to cover the expenses for the food, resources and other items needed for reunion activities. We hope you make the decision soon to attend.
Our past reunions have had a great turnout. We expect our 40-Year Reunion will be the best attended ever. Please mark your calendar today, and plan to join us all in celebrating friendships, good times and our lives.
We’re looking forward to you joining us!

Saturday, June 29 – Activities
Take a tour of Brookfield Central lead by Pete Wysocki. The old school doesn’t look anything like it did when we were there. It’s gone through several renovations in the last 40 years including the addition of a new varsity gym and front lobby. Mr. Wysocki has been there for nearly the entire time so there’s no better guide to take us through the school to show us our old haunts and some of the places where he used to catch classmates where they shouldn’t have been. Our tour is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 29th. We’ll meet at the front entrance.The tour will take about an hour.
Mr. Wysocki was recognized as a “Lancer for Life” by the BCHS Class of 2012. He spent his entire teaching and coaching career at Brookfield Central High School.
