76th Reunion for the 177 Class

The 177th Class celebrated its 76th Reunion on Monday, October 1, 2018. The reunion was held at the Delmonico’s Restaurant on City Avenue located inside the Hilton Philadelphia Hotel.

The men in attendance as pictured on the right included Milton Dienes, Paul Isakoff, and Fred Lehman. H. Leon Bradlow sent a short video to his fellow classmates and lifelong buddies with some endearing comments and that he was looking forward to the next reunion.

Stephen Chappell, AACHS President (209) had this to say: “David Kahn, AACHS Archivist (220) and I had the pleasure of being invited to the 76th reunion of the 177 class.  The class has met every year since graduating in 1942.

We had a delightful time, bringing them up to date on what’s going on at school and with the Alumni Association, and listening to their experiences when they were at Central and since.  We hope we’ll be invited to their 77th.”

We recognize 177 class for their reunion tradition and hope that other reunion classes share in the sentiments and joy of meeting with fellow classmates annually as the 177 class has done for 76 years. #leadingtheway
