Many classes kick off their reunion activities with an informal Friday night get together that are referred to as ‘Mixers’, ‘Warm Ups’ or ‘Icebreakers’. As these names imply this event is intended to loosen classmates up in an informal, neutral and relaxed atmosphere prior to the grand event. Usually light Horsd’houevres are served and classmates pay for their own cocktails at these gatherings. Keep this event simple. Don’t put a lot of undo stress on yourselves as you need to direct most of your energies toward planning the event
Saturday night is reserved for the big event, but consider adding some fun daytime events. One of the most popular events you might want to consider arranging is a men’s, women’s or co-ed golf tournament. Our on-site 18 hole golf course is perfect for this fun event. Consider tying the event to a favorite charity like “Wounded Warriors” and use the opportunity to raise money as a group.
Or, tour of your old school. After 10, 20, 30… years this can be a wonderful experience to once again walk the hallowed halls of your youth. If your event happens to coincide with your school’s homecoming or a school football game, encourage classmates to participate and try to organize special seating arrangements so your class can all sit together.
What kinds of activities should we provide at the reunion?
If you are planning a more formal evening event, certainly the night will contain a sit down dinner and likely music entertainment. You can add some formality to the evening with an official opening welcome and a few brief speeches and awards before dinner. Perhaps a tribute to classmates who have passed away. One thing you need to remember is that people are coming to the reunion to catch up with old friends. You need to allocate the majority of the evening to free socializing. You might also want to consider setting up a continuously running slide show of old class photos in one corner of the room….this is always a great attraction. Consider setting up a nostalgia table for classmates to view memorabilia and artifacts from your class past….this is a great way to jog faded memories and spark discussions amongst classmates. Ask each of your classmates to bring one piece of personal memorabilia for the nostalgia display. If you want to encourage dancing make sure your music provider plays music from your era.
