AOB’s 50th Anniversary – November 23, 2013

Web Page copy

We are so excited about our 50th anniversary celebration coming up on Saturday, November 23 from 1pm until 4pm.  We are looking forward to celebrating our 5 decades of history with our students, alumni, staff, and former staff members.  Austin O’Brien High School opened its doors in November 1963 when students moved over from St. Brendan’s.

We will start our formal program, hosted by CBC radio’s Mark Connolly (’77) at 1:15pm in the gymnasium.  This is guaranteed to be an awesome tribute to our great school!  It will be cool to see Pat Hauck (’65) from our first graduating class give a speech alongside Katelyn Kuchta (’14), a member of our 50th graduating class.  Also, we will have speakers giving a historical perspective of the schoool and there will be a digital presentation which was created by Raj Patel from Orange Fountain .  After the presentation in the gym, we will invite everyone to walk through the school and visit our “decade rooms”.  We have a room set up for each decade of our school’s history in which we will display photographs and other memorabilia from that time.

We will be selling some commemorative items throughout the day.  All of the proceeds from these items will go toward our legacy project which is improvement to the newly named “Msgr. Fee Otterson Stage”.  We will also be accepting donations to this project.

A special thanks to the organizing commitee and the current staff of AOB for all of their hard work and dedication!
