Since you are coming up quickly on a reunion, why don't you include that in the "evening fun" part, either written survey or show of hands,etc...it can be fun, especially since laughing is easier than crying...We awarded a giant eraser from the dollar store to the one with the most 'exes"...and you can also ask if all the "exes live in Texas,"etc...we also gave out magic cards to those who have managed to keep the "magic" the longest! Lots of laughs, never quite sure about the honesty factor!
We have a question on the profile, "still single, married, no longer married, never married or somewhere in between..."
There is also an option for grandchildren, "children with four legs/ grandpets,etc" as today's families are quite diverse and some of our classmates are just now getting to "first-time Dad" status! That also opens up a category for the one with the most "youthful" spouse/partner, but i decided that might cause a few problems...so it remained just an idea!
Once again, answers are sometimes very vague! But that's not what matters...i am just happy that we are still alive to answer them! The "What's left on your Bucket List" is one that really had folks thinking...a few responding, but it does get some conversations started,etc! Any high school "do-over moments" is another idea that triggers some reminiscing, but most realize that we might not do too much over, but it gives one pause to think about it anyway!
Congratulations on doing all the hard work yourself! You will be rewarded, often in intangible ways, but the joy of doing it is half the Fun! You will be the eternal rock star even though you might want to sleep for 6 months when it is all over! Ohwell! Have FUN anyway!
Have a most wonderful Reunion!
