Brookline High School Class of 1994: Celebrating Our 20 Year Reunion!

1994 is...

  • The year Forest Gump was released
  • The year where the Beastie Boys' Sabatoge was all over MTV
  • The year when the first Sony Playstation came out
  • A year when none of us had a cell phone
  • When Netscape launched Mosaic Netscape 0.9, one of the first widely available web browsers
  • When the Cost of a gallon of Gas was$1.09, aMovie Ticket was$4.08, theaverage cost of a new car was$12,350, aLoaf of Bread was$1.59, and aDozen Eggs was86 cents.
  • When Pope John Paul II was Time Magazine's Man of the Year
  • The year of the OJ chase!
  • When Boys II Men, All 4 One, Ace of Base, and R.Kelly crushed the Billboard charts

Yep. We're Old. 20 years ago we all departed Brookline High School with the real world or college ahead of us, and with a New England Patriots hat on our head (Thank you graduation speaker/Patriots Owner, Bob Kraft). On Friday, November 28th, let's all celebrate still being BHS Alumni - 20 years later.

We have secured an excellent space at Empire Restaurant and Lounge, which is one of Boston's newest and most in demand event locations in the revamped Seaport Area. The vibe will be a mingling cocktail reception with lots of good food, great people, and our own bar (cash bar).

Our goal is to get 150-200 people there, so please come with your spouse, significant other, or any guest. REQUEST: Please forward this link widely to BHS '94 Alumni.

In order to have this great space with food, we have set a ~$48/pp fee for the event - all $ goes right into the event costs.

Here's to 20 years later . Let's get Schluntz'd.

Coming to us from Cusco, Peru, Willaru Huayta is a "Chasqui" or spiritual messenger -- a bridge bringing knowledge from the ancient Inca civilization to modern western society. He learned to receive truth during spiritual quests in the Amazon jungles from the masters of the inner cities and his interactions with local shamans. As a Messenger for the Great White Brotherhood, his messages pertain to the transitional times in which we live. Willaru is one of those special light beings, who has fully committed himself to working on behalf of the planet and humanity during this time of transition.

Purpose Workshop: Session 2

Session one: Saturday, September 20th: 9:30 - 1:30
Session two: Saturday, September 27th: 9:30 - 1:30

A two-session series, facilitated by Still Harbor's Director of Spiritual Formation, Colleen Sharka, that will deepen your sense of call and your alignment to it. Attend just the first workshop or attend both for a richer experience.

Throughout our lives, we evaluate and reevaluate how we want to live and act in the world. Despite living in an age of instant access to information and constant connectivity, feeling disconnected from a sense of purpose often makes us feel isolated, directionless, and unfulfilled.

This workshop will help you discern and/or reconnect with your sense of purpose, mission, and drive in your life and work. Through individual reflection, materials and videos, and group sharing, you will have the opportunity to ponder three key questions:
Who am I and why am I here?
What is my purpose?
How do I live out my purpose?


We offer this series free, but encourage you to make a donation:
Help cover our material and food costs with a donation of $50.
Help us cover all of our costs with a donation of $100.

Meal included.
