BRAWLEY – A large number of Brawley Union and Central Union high school seniors were in town Saturday night, and it wasn’t for a Bell Game.

Actually, they weren’t even at the same locations, but they were all decked out in gowns and tuxedos, corsages and boutonnieres, and the other trappings of a formal occasion to celebrate their final year of high school.
