Also, we will soon be offering ball caps with the Boilermaker logo. Keep your eyes on the website for this as well!

All profits from shirt and cap sales will go toward the Alumni Association's scholarship program for deserving graduating Bowen seniors!

Please visit the Alumni Association website to place your orders. Shirts will be delivered at the reunion on August 11th.

YOUR ORDER MUST BE RECEIVED ON LINE BY JULY 25TH TO ASSURE DELIVERY AT THE REUNION!!!

Thanks so much for your support of the Alumni Association, and have a great time at the reunion!!!




The East Bank Club is handicapped accessible; however, there is no elevator from the parking garage to the main floor so people will have to be dropped off at the front entrance (where there are benches for people to wait) or pay extra to turn their car over at the front door to be parked by a valet. There is reserved handicapped parking in the garage.  There are no steps in the dining area.  From the dining area it is possible to go outside to the river walk.  There are two entrances to the riverwalk from the dining area and one has a ramp.  The one with stairs only will be marked.  People have requested a detailed list of other activities.  The Reunion Committee is working on one and you will be receiving it shortly.

The Reunion Committee had a very productive meeting yesterday and we are all getting very excited about our upcoming event. Registration is going very well. In fact, it is better than we anticipated. So, because of space considerations, the registration deadline is August 1 or 200 people...whichever comes first! Go to www.bowen1968.com to register.

No attrition or cancellation policy.  If the special Bowen rate is no longer available request a discounted Triple A or Senior Rate.  The hotel is across the street from the EBC and there will be plenty of Bowenites staying there. 

TENTATIVE OUTSIDE ACTIVITIES:

The following are being planned:

A Saturday late morning tour of Bowen.  This will be an Open House at 11 AM.  Transportation is on your own but we will try to organize some groups to go together.  Let us know if you will need transportation.

Choice of one or all of the following:   concert in Millenium Park, jazz at the East Bank Club, meet up at Holiday Inn bar on the 15th floor.  The bar has a stunning view of the city and there is plenty of room to walk around and mingle.  If you decide to do something on your own Friday night, this is a great spot to meet up before turning in for the night.

On Sunday Bowenites will be meeting at Manny's from 10:30 to 12:30.  Manny's is an iconic deli at 1141 S. Jefferson which is a short taxi or uber ride from the hotel and has plenty of parking in the area.  They serve cafeteria style so order and pay for what you want.  They are blocking off a section of seats for us.

We have arranged a photographer to do group photos of our entire group and of the different grade school groups.  He will print them on site.  They will cost $20 and he will accept cash, checks, or credit cards so bring a wallet!
