Minutes 13 July 2009 "We Need More People Showing Up!"
In and of itself, that is not an indicator of how successful our reunion will be but I must admit, I am concerned. Although I was not a part of the 10 year (I was living in New York) and did not attend; I did go to the 20 and I will share with you that I thought it was fantastic. So much so that I have often felt a little curious as to who and how many people it took to pull off such a well planned event that served our classmates from all over the country so well.
Brad Campbell (our senior class president and head of the current reunion committee) shared with me a little after this last meeting that he was hesitant about being too involved this year. He felt that he and the others from previous committee's were relatively unsupported. The time, energy and responsibility that the former committees put in paid off well for those that attended but cut into their family lives, resources and busy schedules. Brad was not complaining; in fact he sharing that this endeavor felt unlike the previous years. I was excited that he thought this project seemed more inclusive than ever before with people willing to help us reach out and folks reaching back.
We do have busy lives but we also have nearly a year to pull off a spectacular and memorable event. The committee intends to have an event that we will both enjoy and that takes into consideration where we all might be at this stage of our lives. For instance, we expect that Family Day (Sunday) we might see more folks bringing their grandkids in addition to or perhaps instead of their adult kids.
Please get on board with your classmates and become a part of your reunion planning team. We want you and we need you.
