The 45th Reunion was Sensational!!
Here’s a Summary –
Friday Morning (9/27)
Eleven members of the class presented six sessions at H-F for students interested in career information. About 80 students attended to hear about our experiences in law, technology, business, education, and the arts. The school staff was very appreciative of this effort, the first time an alumni class has provided multiple speakers for a Career Day – a class gift of our time and expertise.
We gathered at the Aurelio’s in Frankfort, taking advantage of its spacious party room. About sixty classmates arrived for great pizza and conversation.
Friday Late Night
The fabulous ‘60s band, Generations, led by our own John Renaud, pounded out the tunes we grew up with for listening and dancing.
Saturday Morning (9/28)
About 20 classmates heard a presentation from local historian and activist Larry McClellan with fascinating information about the governmental and changing racial make-up of the south Chicago metro and suburban area. This region of 800,000 people (greater than San Francisco) typically gets little attention in the tourist brochures, despite its huge demographic and economic significance.
Then the H-F Alumni Director gave us a personal tour of the phenomenal resources of our high school.
Seventy-five of us gathered at Calumet Country Club for dinner and conversation. Everyone commented on how the intimate atmosphere was conducive for getting to know everyone in the room. Midnight came too quickly!
