Cheers, everyone! 

I am looking forward to hearing from all of you!

Please join us in celebrating our 50th class reunion.

 

 

Reunion Planning Guide

It takes only one person to get a reunion started. So I decided to give it a try. The purpose of this site is to remind, guide, and alert everyone about the various ideas, alternatives, and problems we might encounter along the way. Hopefully we can make this job a little easier by starting now and meeting or e-mailing each other.  We wanted to make plans and announce our 50th reunion well in advance.

These are some possible committees and specific areas that we may want to assign people to: Planning, Correspondence, Finance, Food, Program, Decorations, Entertainment/Music, Set-up/Clean-up, Special Events, Liturgy/Memorial, Booklets, Registration, and Picnic. We could have separate committees or combine some of them together.  We might like to have a committee "at large" instead of delegating responsibilities to various committees, the group as one committee does all the work together.  Someone needs to be elected, selected, or "drafted" from among this group to be the chairperson.  The "committee meetings" almost become "mini-reunions" in themselves.  Will we have an "informal social" on Friday evening or some special event during the day on Saturday (golf outing, family picnic, pool party, etc.)? The Saturday evening function is usually the "Formal/Informal" reunion with a combination of social hour, dinner, program, and dance.
 
Depending on what the reunion committees decides, here are some of the things we should consider budgeting for when planning your reunion:
  • Stationary/envelopes/postage
  • Printing cost (booklets/programs)
  • Advertisements
  • Telephone cost
  • Name tags
  • Food/Drinks
  • Rental of facilities
  • Entertainment (bands/music/DJ)
  • Decorations (flowers/centerpieces)
  • Door prizes
  • Souvenirs
  • Taxes
  • Tips
  • Gift to the school
  • Guest
  • Escrow balance

As to the final cost, it will obviously vary depending on what, where, and how many events we have.  I have talked to several classmates and everyone wants to help.  The girls wanted to get together for a fun lunch one day so I hope we can set up this meeting and start planning the 50th reunion.  Please let everyone know about this site where they can e-mail us with suggestions and ideas for the reunion.  We didn't have a large class so we should be able to locate everyone with your help and have a fun weekend.  I would love to hear from all of you.  Thanks for memories and everything. 

 

Have a great day!
Charlotte Bishop Jackson
