According to Brookfield Area Growth Partnership executive director Becky Cleveland, the event is open to the area.
“There’s going to be something for everyone,” Cleveland said. “Everyone is invited. If you’ve ever lived in Brookfield, visited Brookfield, or attended Brookfield High School you’re invited.”
Starting at noon July 19, tent spaces will be available for BHS classes in the East Twin park for $50. The BHS alumni golf tournament starts July 20 at 10 a.m. at the Brookfield Country Club. Later that day, the party in the park will begin at 6 p.m. and run until 11 p.m. There will be food vendors and live music provided by Top Sound. The 5K/10K walk/run starts at 6:30 a.m. July 21 starting in the East Twin Park. Other events July 21 include: The softball tournament at 8:30 a.m. at Graff Field, alumni parade at noon starting Trinity Methodist Church, alumni party at Overton’s Helm Street Inn from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and the BHS banquet and BHS hall of fame induction at 6 p.m. at the Park Baptist Church Fellowship Hall.
Brookfield High School alumnus Bill Thudium says excited for the weekend.
“It’s a great opportunity to meet with people from your class, or maybe people who graduated years and years ago,” Thudium said. “The weekend is all about meeting old friends and rekindling those friendships.”
Thudium is celebrating his 50th class reunion this weekend. There will be a member for the class of ‘48 participating this weekend as well.
The theme for the alumni parade is, “Dragging Down Memory Main.” The parade judges are former BHS teachers Timi Haag, Dave Shaw, Sarah Mosley and Jim Hart. The logo for the parade was made by BHS alumni Nathan Stufflebean.
