The Chesterton High School Mini committee has announced the annual 2019 all-class reunion, known as the Mini, on Monday, July 8.

This year’s events will kick off with a golf outing at 9 a.m. at the Brassie Club in Chesterton. The evening’s gathering will be at Gelsosomo’s Pizza and Pub on Indian Boundary Road where people will start to gather at 5 p.m. The gathering usually starts to thin out about 10 p.m.

This is the seventh annual Mini and is expected to be the most well attended yet. The first ever Mini was held in 2012 in Porter and drew a crowd of 20 mostly from the classes of 1961 and 1962. Over the years the attendance has grown to where the crowd in 2018 exceeded 100 classmates. Classes represented in 2018 were from 1955 through 1967.

“This year we hope to have many more classes represented as we have had interest from classes planning 50th and 55th reunions”, said Joe Drozda ’61 who is on the organization committee for the Mini.

The Mini was set-up to have no requirements, no fees and no real formal programs like a standard class reunion. Each person comes when they want, and each only pays for what he or she want to eat or drink. All food and drinks are ordered by individuals, off the menu. “It’s just a good chance to see all those people from your class and some before or after you that you remember from the halls of CHS. Younger classes are encouraged to attend as well, as all people seem to like the chance to catch up with their friends and class-mates”, said Drozda.

Awards are Trojan Medals (pictured) and given to the oldest class participant, the person that traveled the farthest, the Alumni VIP, the winners of golf, and a few others.

Interested CHS grads and fans can go to chsmini.org for details and to sign up for golf and or let the committee know that they are coming. While on the mini site people can watch short videos of last year’s mini and a video of the history of CHS from the perspective of the class of 1961.
