    How can any school have a 100-year anniversary and then decide to bar EVERYONE who came from entering the Hollenbeck campus? This “celebration” took place ACROSS the street from Hollenbeck on 6th Street. Alumni came with the expectation that they would enter the campus, hopefully enter buildings to see their homerun, lockers, recess/lunch area, auditorium, etc. I talked to others also who expressed that feeling. Someone ACROSS the street told me Hollenbeck had Saturday classes. IF this was the case, why not have the event on Sunday? Very badly planned. We, the alumni, were mislead, to attend this event, not being told beforehand, that we would not be allowed to enter the campus. Whoever planned this, simply is simply out of touch with the alumni of Hollenbeck Junior High. We did not expect to instead, attend a gathering of, with due respect, vendors who needed people for their business.
