Come back and show your school spirit! It’s reunion time for the Riverside-Brookfield High School class of 1960, which has been actively holding reunions almost every five years.

Hopefully everyone can attend the whole fun-filled weekend, which this year is on Sept. 16-17 with a tour of the hallowed halls on Friday followed by pizza and libations at P.J. Klem’s in Lyons. Members of the class of ‘60 have extended to invite to all who were/are friends of the class and would like to see some of their old friends. It is only $15 a person.

The class will gather on Saturday night at the Riverside Golf Club for cocktails and dinner. There will be a video presentation of past reunions and music from back in the day. If the new knees and hips are working, classmates are encouraged to take a turn on the dance floor — yes, there will be some slow tunes. The tickets are $60 which includes a buffet meal prepared especially for the guests by the club chef, Michael. 

You’ll also have time Saturday for tours of Riverside (self-guided with maps) and visit the Riverside Museum and places to have breakfast or lunch

The class of 1960 had its share of successful people — just take a walk past the Alumni Achievement wall at the high school to see how many members of the class are listed.
