Past Reunions - 2011

We received an especially generous donation from the CLASS of 1951 in recognition of its recent 60th anniversary reunion - thank you so VERY MUCH. They also sent along a copy of their booklet "A Brief History of OPRFHS" which reminded us that it was called Oak Park Township High School prior to 1950! At that time, Oak Park and River Forest consolidated their separate high school districts and the school was renamed Oak Park & River Forest High School!

And THANKS to the CLASS of 1986 and the CLASS of 1961 for your very generous donations - we are so grateful to have such terrific support from our alumni. Thank you to all the classes and groups listed HERE for their support of the Alumni Association
