Central Wildcats 50th Class Reunion Weekend

September 25-27, 2015 in Pueblo



Friday Night Event: "Night of Nostalgia" Kick it off right at the Central Mixer with cash bar at 5pm at the Olde Towne Carriage House, 102 S. Victoria Avenue in Pueblo. Grinders by Ianne's at 7pm and other surprises will bring us a true "Blast from the Past." Overlooking Pueblo's beautiful Historic Arkansas Riverwalk, the Carriage House facility has a modern vibe, but is vintage Pueblo at its finest. A casual get-together to become reacquainted and renew old friendships from the Class of '65.

Saturday Night Event:  "A Taste of Pueblo Fiesta Dinner" at Pueblo's beautiful Sangre de Cristo Arts Center at First & Santa Fe. Arrive by 6pm to enjoy a cocktail at the cash bar. And then, because nobody does Mexican food like Pueblo, a Mexican buffet feast featuring all your favorites will follow. More time to mix and mingle and remember the old times in Pueblo at Central.

Sunday Morning Event: "Where it Began: Tour of our Alma Mater." Come to Central, 216 W. Orman Avenue by 10am for a casual Continental Breakfast in the renovated Central High Cafeteria followed by a personalized tour of the school. Think you can still "do" inclines? We learned at the 45th reunion that those inclines we breezed up and down in high school are just a bit more challenging all of these decades later!


The cost to attend the Central 50th Class Reunion Weekend - that's right - the  WHOLE WEEKEND is just $75 per person. 

Watch for your Central Reunion Invitation and Reservation Form coming to your mailbox soon! 

UPDATE: Invitations/Reservation Forms were mailed on Saturday, March 14. If you don't receive yours within a week's time (or thereabouts!) please contact Gale Hoover Hammond at Thank you!!
