April 1, 2011
Dear CHS Classmates,
Just five short years ago, we were working on details for our very successful 50 year reunion. At our celebration, those who were there encouraged us to plan for at least one more gathering as a class. You spoke, and we listened. Mark your calendars - here is the plan for our casual and fun loving,
CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1956 - 55 year reunion
Friday, September 16, 2011. Time: 5:00 p.m.– 10:00 p.m.
Madison Masonic Center (small dining room)
301 Wisconsin Avenue, Madison, WI 53703
Cash bar social beginning at 5:00 pm, buffet dinner at 6:30 pm
Only $25 per person
We are excited about having the reunion in our old neighborhood. We can walk the steps where our class picture was taken and we can also stroll around the Central High School arch, which still stands as a reminder of the “good old days.” Be sure to bring your cameras (or phones) to capture some memorable moments to share with your families. Over the weekend, stop at Vilas Park to see the bench donated by our class in 2006 with accumulated excess funds from our past reunions. The bench is located near the Children’s’ Zoo and is clearly marked as a gift from the CHS class of 1956.
