Every year, about 150,000 class reunions are held in the United States, according to Reunion Research, a California reunion company, and about 27 million people attend those events.
With careful planning and the assistance from local food trucks, it’s no problem to put together a great reunion for former classmates. Here how to make it happen:
Establish a class reunion committee. Select dependable individuals who will stick with the project until the reunion is over and all bills are paid. Divide the work load among committee members, but give the reunion’s financial management to the most mathematically savvy and trustworthy individual.
Start planning at least 12 months before the reunion. Choose a convenient location, and send out a save-the-day email/postcard as soon as you know the date and location. Former classmates who have moved away probably require extra time to make travel arrangements.
Establish a reasonable budget. Determine all activities and meals that will be offered and the price you’ll charge in order to cover your expenses. Try to make the event affordable for the majority of classmates.
Hold committee meetings monthly to discuss status and remaining chores. Face-to-face meetings are best, but occasional conference calls may be convenient for most committee members. Make sure someone take notes to email to committee members afterwards.
Pick party music that was popular when you were in school. Everyone will feel nostalgic.
Serve delicious food that everyone will love. Buffet dining is often easier to manage – and less pricey – than having waiters serve meals to seated diners. Select familiar foods, such as chicken, sandwiches or tacos, and be sure to offer a vegetarian option. Show that you are on top of what’s current by hiring gourmet food trucks that offer a range of delicious foods. Every major city has many trucks and cuisines to choose from. By hiring several for the event, you’ll offer reunion guests a selection of cuisines.
