40th Reunion Schedule of Events
All of the events are set and here are the details. If you've been away from Tosa for a lot of years, you might want to refer to the map below.
Friday Night - Tosa Fest
September 9th (Friday) - 6:00PM - 11:00PM - This will be our informal gathering at Tosa Fest. Our main meeting location will be at the tents which will be near or under the Harmonee Bridge which is close to the Little Red Store. No RSVP is needed. If you can't recognize anyone, look for our Tosa East 1976 sign.
The map at the right is from Tosa Fest showing this years grounds. We have marked our approximate meeting location with a four-point star.
You may have heard that there is major construction on State Street. It's true, but it really won't interfere with Tosa Fest. Over the years as Tosa Fest grew in size, it spread into the parking areas under the Harmonee Bridge. (This bridge was not there when we attended East!) What the organizers did was simple: move all of the event into those parking areas.
Parking? Parking always tends to be an issue with Tosa Fest. It is tough to tell anyone where to park because there really is no one specific area. You simply find parking anywhere you can (there are a few parking lots here and there, but also consider the streets) and be prepared to walk.
Saturday Morning - Tosa East Tour
September 10th (Saturday) - 10:30AM - 12:00PM - Tour of Tosa East. Enter at the main entrance on Milwaukee Avenue. (It's the entrance you see in the photo above.) If the doors are open, you might not see anyone because everyone might have gone inside into the Learning Center area. No RSVP is needed. Parking is available in the Tosa East parking lots.
Saturday Evening - The Main Event
September 10th (Saturday) - 5:00PM - 10:00PM - Main reunion event at the Hart Park Pavilion. Prior registration is required for arrival before 7:30PM while we are serving food. We will have food stations (rather than a sit down dinner to maximize mingling), a cash bar, a photo booth, and a live band (The Differentials). For late arrivers (after 7:30PM) who are not eating, if you do not have a prior registration, we will accept walk-ins at a cost of $20/person. Dress attire: casual.
Sunday - No Events Planned
September 11th (Sunday) - There are no formal or informal events currently planned. However, it's football season and the Packers are playing the Jaguars starting at noon. We have received one suggestion that we meet at Mo's Irish Pub in Wauwatosa which is on Bluemound Road and Hwy 100. We are looking for a classmate to "host" this event which simply means you'll be there and be willing to give your cell phone number so classmates may contact you if they're having difficulty finding the group.

10842 W Bluemound Rd
