Dozens of alumnae gathered at Buckatabon Tavern & Super Club in Wauwatosa for drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and Dasher spirit! The evening was full of reconnection, community, and fun.
Alumnae were transported back in time as they walked the halls of DSHA. Current student ambassadors led tours, sharing the latest and greatest DSHA happenings, as well as showing guests the newer additions to campus from the last few years, including the Mother of Our Savior Chapel, the new wing of classrooms, the Sarah M. Hegarty Fitness Center, as well as the expansion and redesign of the Chris and John McDermott Gymnasium.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2
Fall vibes were in the air during the all-new Dash-tober Fest! The outdoor event included food from Heaven’s Table Food Truck, beverages, Milwaukee’s favorite rock ‘n roll cover band, and of course, great Dasher company from all classes. Highlights of the night include:
5 Card Studs | Alumnae polished off their dancing shoes, grabbed their sisters, and boogied the night away like they were back in high school. The groovy 5 Card Studs brought rock ‘n roll, pop, soul, funk, and disco music to DSHA’s backyard.
Class Reunions | Classes ending in 0, 1, 5, and 6 had reserved tables at the event along with other special touches including a professional photo taken together as a class. Reunions ranged from the DSHA Class of 1975 celebrating their 45th reunion to the DSHA Class of 2016 celebrating their 5th reunion.
DSHA Celebrity Bartenders |
Beloved faculty members and coaches served as celebrity bartenders throughout the night and were able to mingle with former students.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3
After inducting the HA, DS, and DSHA classes of 1970 and 1971 into the Jubilarian community, all Jubilarians,
those women who graduated from HA, DS, or DSHA 50+ years ago, celebrated a ladies-only brunch. 2021 Jubilarian of the Year Maria Haas Tess, HA ’68, addressed the community gathered.
