Bloom High School class of 1973 50th reunion panoramic picture

The reunion of the Bloom High School class of 1973 was held Friday, November 17th and Saturday, November 18, 2023. The kick-off was a 4:00 P.M. tour of the high school, led by Bloom Alumni Executive Director Nancy Cavallo Bawolek and student volunteers. 60+ former students and their guests once again got the chance to see the Trojan Head, the choir and band rooms, the sports wing with the Field House and gyms, the library, and more.

After the tour, the Friday evening event was a casual dinner at Olympia Fields Country Club, where 80+ classmates and their guests sat together, catching up and reminiscing about their days at Bloom.

On Saturday evening, close to 100 classmates and their guests gathered once again at the Olympia Fields Country Club for a night of socializing, great food, and dancing to the DJ’s 1970s-themed music. We also discovered that there are some really good singers among the class of 1973, and they showed us their talents in singing to the DJ’s karaoke tracks!

There was a photographer who took a panoramic photo of the entire class as well as photos of classmates from the various elementary/middle schools that fed into Bloom High. If you weren’t able to attend, you can order a photo by going to
