A series of events are planned to celebrate the 50-year reunion for Joliet East High School Class of 1969. Events will take place July 25-27, 2019 at a variety of locations.

  • Thursday, July 25 from 6 to 10 p.m. reunion events will kick off with an informal social at Kuchie’s Bar, 1356 Houbolt Road in Joliet. No tickets are required.

  • The morning of Friday, July 26, if there is enough interest, we will host a golf outing. If you are interested in attending or would like more information, contact Michael O’Connell at mikeoc13@yahoo.commikeoc13@yahoo.com or call (815) 263-5480 by June 15.

  • Friday, July 26 from 6 to 11 p.m. is “A Return to the Wild Goose.” The event takes place in the Inwood Golf Course Banquet Hall and features the band “Saints and Sinners.” Enjoy music from the 60’s, a cash bar, and food available for purchase from Babe’s Hot Dog Truck. JT East alumni from the classes of ’67, ‘68, ’70, and ’71 are invited to join us. The cost is $10 payable at the door.

  • Saturday, July 27 will start off at 10:30 a.m. with a nostalgic tour throughout Joliet East. Joliet East was open for 19 years from 1964-1983. The building now houses Joliet Job Corps but hasn’t changed much. Walk the halls once again with your fellow Kingsmen. Who remembers where their locker was??
