 Matthew shares some interesting history about Central: “I witnessed the groundbreaking for the school in “Wistar Woods,” from across the street, when I was 8 years old. Ogontz  Avenue did not exist south of Olney Avenue at that time. As a student, it was a 6-to-8 minute walk to school every morning from my house on 16th Street.”

“A Benevolent Brotherhood
As we head down the path towards our 35th, we would like to focus our thoughts not only on reconnecting with our brothers to celebrate this particular milestone, but also on giving back to the institution that has given us the guidance and enlightenment to properly pave the path that has brought us to this juncture.

With this in mind, we’ve created a non-profit endearingly named “Benevolent Pricks of the 241 Brotherhood,” which will be leveraged to establish an endowment to Central High School on behalf of our graduating class. To raise funds for this endowment, we will be instituting tiered pricing above and beyond the $100.00 per person base event fee, with premiums featuring the 241 35th Reunion logo associated with each level of contribution.

Tiered pricing and premiums will be announced in the coming weeks, so please stay tuned!”

Gerald Keane, class representative for 215, said after the class’s last reunion in April 2016 that many members suggested not waiting five years to meet again, but rather getting together to celebrate members’ collective 75th birthdays.

“I have arranged to have a reunion at the Hilton hotel off of City Avenue on Saturday May 19, 2018,” said Gerry. “They have complementary valet parking. If you wish to stay at the hotel, we will get a discounted rate.”

Gerald said he and organizers are arranging a visit to Central for Friday May 18 so please keep the weekend available for Central and your classmates. Times and costs will be announced at a later date.
