50th reunion

Where? The Downtown Marriott: 323 East Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee. The hotel is centrally located for all the happenings downtown and at the lakefront. The free streetcar rides make it even easier to get around, especially as a stop will be right across the street from the hotel.

When? September 21, 2019

Cost? $80.00 a person. This includes a buffet dinner and music and seven hours' worth of reconnecting with fellow 69ers.


The outdoor athletic facilities in Sherman Park’s Washington High School are deteriorating and have fallen into disrepair. Help the students at WHS live up to their potential by giving them a safe place to practice, play and build life skills. 

Common Ground, helping to revitalize the Sherman Park area, has a goal of raising $500,000 towards this improvement – and every dollar raised will be MATCHED by Milwaukee Public Schools*.

You can help restore these facilities and continue the legacy of positive change for Purgolders of today – and tomorrow!

The current facilities are unusable
– Girls soccer practice is frequently canceled because the field is flooded
– Track and field athletes can’t use their spikes on the current walkway
– The outdoor basketball equipment hasn’t been replaced in decades
– Every day, track and field athletes are losing an hour of practice time due to travel to other locations

Repairing the field will…
– Allow students to participate in athletics at their own school
– Foster a multi-generational outdoor recreation space for thousands of students and community members
– Increase public safety and send a message that the neighborhood matters
– Continue to foster the Sherman Park neighborhood revitalization Common Ground has created
