Class of 1956 sets date for 55th reunion activities

Below is a copy of the letter about the 55th reunion sent out to members of the Madison Central High School Class of 1956:

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. 

Our celebration will be one of reconnecting, laughing, dining and recalling memories of our teen years in Madison. Please bring pictures or any memorabilia that you wish to share.

It’s important that you fill out and return your reservation form by May 15th in the envelope provided. Since our funds are limited, we hope to avoid a second mailing. We very much want you to be part of what may be our final reunion as a class (it’s an age thing, you know). If you’ve never attended, please come; NOW is the time. Share a “Toast to Central High School.”

Love ‘n hugs, from your “core” committee,

John Hilliard, Chair, Carla Baez, Sue Birrenkott, Shirley Cassini, Barbara Lomperski,
Virginia Nelson, Bev Schaefer, and Cheryll Thompson

It would be great to hear from you, contact Cheryll -
