An all-school reunion for Joliet East High School graduates from the classes of 1964-1983 will be held Saturday, July 27 at Joliet Memorial Stadium from 6-11 p.m.
“There’s nothing like remembering the good old days at Joliet East High School,” said JTHS Director of Alumni Relations, Lynne Lichtenauer. “If you need a break from your grown up life, it’s time to go back to school for this celebration that marks 49 years of the Kingsmen,19 years for Joliet East (’64-’83), and the 30 years since the school’s closing.”
The cost to attend with a pre-paid reservation is $15 per person. Alumni may also pay at the gate for $20 per person. Prices include admission and one drink coupon. The event is for adults 21 years of age and older.
To make reservations, please contact the Alumni Office by phone at (815) 727-6763 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. No tickets will be issued for the event and a reservation list will be at the gate during the evening of the reunion.
“The celebration is open to all those who attended JT East but subsequently graduated from either JT Central or JT West, to all former East faculty members and to friends of the Kingsmen,” said Lichtenauer. “There will be music, food, beverages and plenty of memories.”
The Alumni Relations Office has requested that all Kingsmen forward their email address to the Alumni Office if they wish to receive further celebration updates and email blasts. “All alumni are encouraged to help spread the word through Facebook and other social media outlets to let others know of the celebration,” said Lichtenauer.
