Central High School Philadelphia 214th Class Website
Yeah, I know. The much anticipated '60' is not for another nine months! But, I can't help it. I'm excited already. The Reunion Committee is now meeting, and the tentative details of the Reunion are listed below.
By the time of our reunion in October 2020, the new $42M Performing Arts Center construction will be on its way---see the webpage for the facts and figures. A beautiful state-of-the art- facility adjacent to the North Walk on Ogontz Avenue.
As noted above, The Reunion Committee has met several times, and as it stands now, the ruminations of the members have produced the following events for the 60th reunion:
The date is Friday, October 2, 2020
Mark your calendars!
The plans include a tour of the school with current students serving as your guides, a visit to the School Store to stock up on CHS paraphernalia (for the grandkids, of course), and a sumptuous catered lunch. Those of you who have not been back to Central, you will be impressed by all of the modernization of the eighty year old building (1939 ).
The evening event will be held at the same venue as our 55th reunion- the Marriott Old City (formerly the Society Hill Sheraton) located on Columbus Boulevard (formerly Delaware Avenue) in the shadow of the Ben Franklin Bridge. Rooms will be available for those staying overnight.
The evening activities will feature a stag cocktail hour and dinner followed by our significant others joining us for dessert....
To see and kibbutz with our friends and classmates once again is one of life's great pleasures. Do not miss this next gathering of the 214th class.
Check back to the website for the particulars of payment and such.
P.S. See you on the South Lawn. I'll save you a spot.
