40th Reunion

CLCHS Class of 1969

40th REUNION
Homecoming Weekend Schedule - September 18-20, 2009
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18th
 
4:00 pm - Homecoming Parade - Join classmates at the corner of Williams & Brink Streets in front of LaStrada to catch the Homecoming Parade!
7:45 pm - Varsity Football Game - For those wanting to catch the "Friday Night Lights" prior to celebrating at The Cottage. Relive great moments at the school's annual homecoming Under the Lights. Game time is 7:45pm but due to the large crowd, we are advised to get to the field around 7:15pm or earlier for seating. We'll be trying to save seats but it's a busy night! Look for the "Class of 69 Reunion" banners for direction on where to sit. Parking is also challenging so come early and/or park at Husmann (Central) Elementary School at McHenry & Franklin Avenues. Then join classmates at The Cottage at half-time, after the game, or whenever it suits you.
7:00 pm - Midnight - "Get Reacquainted Evening" (Dress: Casual) - Starting at 7:00 PM classmates will gather for cash bar socializing.  Come early or late - but come! Our private room is reserved until Midnight.
Location:
6 E. Crystal Lake Ave.
Corner of Walkup and CL Ave (5 corners)
For those with great memories, it's the old Silent Woman Ladies Store
