Welcome Home – Honoring Thornton’s Veterans


A program that will honor all former Thornton veterans will be presented by Tom Dreesen, ’57, and the Thornton Alumni Legacy Fund. The event is set for Saturday, Nov. 12, 2016 at the newly rebuilt auditorium at Thornton Township High School in Harvey, Illinois.

Dreesen is a comedian who served for many years as the opening act for Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.

All Thornton veterans who served in the military, as well as their families, are cordially invited to attend this free program. Relatives of deceased veterans are also welcome, as those service men and women will also be honored.  Invitations will be sent out at a later date when more details are available.  If you are interested in this program and would like to attend, please contact:
