Blackshirts Who, What, When, Where, Why, Who-
-
Last week we had the honor of having 187 classmates from the Class of 1964 join us for breakfast out at the Delafield Brewhaus. We have received feedback from some of those in attendance about the program, music, atmosphere, food and the ever present camaraderie from the very beginning of the celebration.
-
The following is an email we received from the '64 Reunion Committee member, Kerry Krueger. "The class of 1964 would like to thank the BBG Breakfast group for supporting our class 50th Reunion. The Breakfast, and web site that was designed by Jack Dresdow '61 were outstanding. Our reunion was a huge success with over 200 classmates attending and it would not have happened with out the BBG. Thanks to all that helped us out." Kerry Krueger 50th Reunion Committee member

Last weekend the Class of 1954 celebrated their 60 Class Reunion. Like most class reunions, teachers "of the day" are invited and this celebration was no different. For this class it was Coach/Teacher Charlie Miller.
-
Coach had this to say about the event, "I was honored to say a few words at Class of 1954 60th reunion Saturday afternoon! They were honoring teachers by having a center piece on each table with nicely done picture and card of different teachers. 1954 was my first year in Waukesha and I had 10th graders but they knew me from being assistant basketball coach when they won Suburban Conference and took 3rd in State Tourney."
-
Coach continued, "I roamed the room and told them what happened to the honored teacher in the years after they graduated. Also told them I am aware my invite was based on being “The last Man Standing” from their era"!!!
-
BBG Shutterbug Jim Howitt '62 added a photo of the Class of '54 as they gathered last Saturday to celebrate their 60th reunion. Also, there is a photo of the '54 Class Guest of Honor, Coach/Teacher Charlie Miller.

We often hear those words, "it is a very small world"! Here is another instance supporting that claim! While enjoying a "Jimmy's Grotto" Ponza Rotta recently, I noticed a very good friend and former fellow Sentry Food Store co-worker, Bill Godfrey '55 sitting in the booth behind me along with 3 other guys.
-
We also recalled a few other Blackshirt co-workers, Arlene (Scholtz) Behmer '55, Jack Kaepernick '57 and Dave Mickler '64.
-
It has been exactly 50 years since Bill and I first met at Sentry Food Store on Bank Street so we had a lot to discuss. We shook hands and Bill introduced me to his 3 classmates, Ken Hunkins '55, George Pichotta '55 and Dick Lambert. I discovered the 4 of them make up part of the 1955 Class Reunion Committee for next years, 60th Class Reunion.
-
This was indeed a very special meeting considering George is a constant Blackshirt Trivia player/winner and all 4 of these guys attend the across town weekly Wednesday breakfast meeting for Blackshirt Oldtimers Group at Christine's Restaurant.
-
They quickly referred to the BBG as the "junior Blackshirts" and they, the BOG, as the "senior Blackshirts"! There is no way to argue that point, all of their participants are eligible to use the AARP card where many of the BBG do not qualify for that "elder discount" ((<:
-
We parted ways after I extended to them an invitation to join the BBG any Friday morning for some "top shelf" camaraderie and excitement instead of just frequent bathroom visits ((<:
