of Wauwatosa East 1981 20th Reunion is Only Days Away!
reunion weekend is just around the corner and you'll be glad to hear that over
225 of your former high school classmates and their spouse/guests are going to
be joining you at the Saturday evening event at Potawatomi Casino.
The event begins at 6:00 PM and will go until the casino says the party
is over! Just for your information,
the average high school 20th reunion usually brings a total
attendance of around 25% of the total class size. (including spouses/guests)
We are at over 60% of our total class size (including spouses/guests).
This means that we will certainly have a greater percentage of fun and
forget about the pre-reunion party being hosted at Bill Penzey's on Friday
night. Many of us will be
"borrowing the parents car" and heading over to Bill's around 8:00 PM.
Please scroll on down this page to see more details and directions on
a part of the evening's events we will be hosting a raffle to raise money for
the Steve Marz Memorial Scholarship Fund. Steve
and his wife Linda were tragically killed in a car accident while on their way
to vacation with their children in Florida this past March.
I have had an opportunity to speak with Steve's family over the past few
months, and they are overwhelmed with our gesture of kindness and honored that
we would do this on behalf of Steve.
tickets will be sold on Friday night and Saturday night with the
prizes have been donated by many Wauwatosa businesses including The Chancery,
Balistrarie's, Starbucks, Ultimate Confections Chocolates....and more.
Other donations include a weekend package at the Hilton Hotel Milwaukee,
a weekend package at the Pfister Hotel Milwaukee, Spice Crates from Penzey
Spices, 2 tickets to the Packers vs. Washington Redskins on Monday Night
September 24th, $25 American Express Gift Certificates, a DVD/CD Player...and
more. Tickets will be $5.00 each or
6 for $25.00. Knowing that many of you are from out of town, we will allow the
winners to select the prize of their choice.

Friday Night House Party
It is a tradition for
everyone to gather the Friday night before the reunion at one of the State
street bars. This year with the standing room only TosaFest
crowds, we needed to come up with a new location. Luckily one of our
class of 81 volunteered the perfect place right in Tosa. Bill Penzey has the
house on the Menomonee River Parkway known as the Governor's Mansion.
It has more room than anyone could imagine and was meant for hosting an
informal event like this. You have got to see this place. After Bill called we
held our last reunion committee meeting at the house and we all agreed this is
the place for the entire class to be Friday night. For those of you not familiar
with the Friday night get together, it is a great low key, no cost chance to
catch up with your old
schoolmates. Even if you are unable to attend the reunion you are
welcome. Some beer and snacks will be provided. If you want to bring more
beverages or something to eat it would be appreciated. Everyone will be there.
See you around 8:00.
Who’s planning this event: There are a number of individuals planning this event on your behalf. If you have more specific questions that have not been answered on the website or in your invitation, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get back to you as quickly as possible.
Again, our mission is to host an event for you! Everyone from the Wauwatosa East Class of 1981 is welcome. We look forward to seeing you this September.
