Marcy....When it comes to Class reunions, I'd be willing to wager that my class has had more reunions than most! I not only live in an area of WNY made up of small towns, Villages and small cities, but my sister and I attended private High School, which reduced the size of our class in number, even further. This in itself allowed everyone to really get to know one another and form bonds as a group as opposed to creating those horrendous "cliques." After 4 years our classmates were basically more like family.
My "50th" (OUCH) is next summer 2016......Since graduation, we have had traditional full-blown reunions every 5 years rather than every 10 as well as last minute-planned "get-togethers" when one or a few classmates come into town, so to speak, from where ever they had gone off to live and work. Many of us have remained good friends to this day and have kept in touch in some way with the rest.
My email is already abuzz with plans and organizing for the big 50th.....
I have attended several but not all. It always seemed to me that we had a great time at each & every one.
We were all serious academics but also very much the "wild childs" of the '60's ......within reason. I'm personally proud of all of us. We have quite an impressive list of productive, stellar & successful individuals. Doctors, lawyers, architects, law enforcement, Government employees, Firemen, Nurses, teachers, business owners & even a few who took the entrepreneur route & reached the top. We also have our Joe and Jane everyday hard-working people who remained in their hometowns.
Sadly we have lost a few, but it's less than 10. Statistically, that's fairly low. IMHO, experiences with class reunions has been idyllic......Peace, Paula
