Reasons to Attend Reunion 

Nostalgia "for old times' sake"

Meeting long-time--but not "old" friends

Laughing about good times

High school were formative years and classmates care.

Showing up "older" and then growing "younger"

The 60's are back!

To see yourself reflected  in the eyes that shared your youth.

To see yourself comfortably reflected in the eyes that shared your youth.

Classmates know the feeling to be 28, 38, 48, 58, or 68

Renew old friendships and make new ones

Show off pictures of your children and grandchildren

Because your reunion committee worked tirelessly planning this reunion

Because everyone will tell you that you still look the same

You wish you knew THEN what you know NOW.

We're ALL "old school"

Because you will go home with an awesome photo name tag

Sing along to "our" songs

Because its just not possible that 50 years has passed (omg!)

We survived Disco Fever

To reminisce and  remember "the good old days."

Because you really want to see your classmates!

Because your classmates want to see you!

 

Timeless:

 

 

THE CLASS REUNION



Every ten years, as summertime nears,
An announcement arrives in the mail,
A reunion is planned; it'll be really grand;
Make plans to attend without fail.



I'll never forget the first time we met;
We tried so hard to impress.
We drove fancy cars, smoked big cigars,
And wore our most elegant dress.



It was quite an affair; the whole class was there.
It was held at a fancy hotel.
We wined, and we dined, and we acted refined,
And everyone thought it was swell.



The men all conversed about who had been first
To achieve great fortune and fame.
Meanwhile, their spouses described their fine houses
And how beautiful their children became.



The homecoming queen, who once had been lean,
Now weighed in at one-ninety-six.
The jocks who were there had all lost their hair,
And the cheerleaders could no longer do kicks.



No one had heard about the class nerd
Who'd guided a spacecraft to the moon;
Or poor little Jane, who's always been plain;
She married a shipping tycoon.



The boy we'd decreed 'most apt to succeed'
Was serving ten years in the pen,
While the one voted 'least' now was a priest;
Just shows you can be wrong now and then.



They awarded a prize to one of the guys
Who seemed to have aged the least..
Another was given to the grad who had driven
The farthest to attend the feast.




They took a class picture, a curious mixture
Of beehives, crew cuts and wide ties.
Tall, short, or skinny, the style was the mini;
You never saw so many thighs.

At our next get-together, no one cared whether
They impressed their classmates or not.
The mood was informal, a whole lot more normal;
By this time we'd all gone to pot.


It was held out-of-doors, at the lake shores;
We ate hamburgers, coleslaw, and beans.
Then most of us lay around in the shade,
In our comfortable T-shirts and jeans.


By the fiftieth year, it was abundantly clear,
We were definitely over the hill.
Those who weren't dead had to crawl out of bed,
And be home in time for their pill.


And now I can't wait; they've set the date;Our sixtieth is coming, I'm told.
It should be a ball, they've rented a hall
At the Shady Rest Home for the old.


Repairs have been made on my hearing aid;
My pacemaker's been turned up on high.
My wheelchair is oiled, and my teeth have been boiled;



I'm feeling quite hearty, and I'm ready to party
I'm gonna dance 'til dawn's early light.
It'll be lots of fun; But I just hope that there's one
Other person who can make it that night.
