45th Reunion





You've got a year to get in shape for our 45th Reunion!!!





1. You'll laugh, cry, and reminisce with some of your old friends.

2. It's ok to not remember someone. That's why nametags were invented!

3. Feel better realizing you are not the only one who has been married, divorced, married, divorced and still looking.

4. Rekindle or begin new relationships.

5. Show everyone how sexy bald it!

6. Even if you had some negative experiences in high school, don't fret about it, you'll most likely laugh about it now.

7. Enjoy an evening out without the kids.

8. Use the reunion as an opportunity to diet and shape up.

9. Humor the reunion committee; they usually are a bunch of deluded diehards who think everyone should show up to appreciate their efforts.

10. And finally, studies have shown that those who were initially hesitant about attending their reunions discover it was the event that they wouldn't have missed!



If you are NOT coming to the reunion, you need a good excuse and a note from your Mom. The following reasons have been tried and are UNacceptable.

    NO EXCUSES!!!  

 Excuse #1: I've gained a lot of weight!   
Rebuttal:  Look around!!  I doubt any of us could get back into our jeans from high school any more.   

Excuse #2:  I'm a different person than I was in high school

Rebuttal: Lucky for you, we ALL are. Let's face it: we could only have improved.

Excuse #3:   I don't look as good as I'd like. I (choose one or more) am bald, have wrinkles, saddlebags, grey hair and no one will recognize me.
Rebuttal: Guess what! You won't recognize anyone else, either. Using the reunion committee as a representative sample, our whole class looks like a "before" photo in a plastic surgery ad.

Excuse #4: I'm not successful. I'm not (choose one or more) a lawyer, a doctor or rich.

Rebuttal: You'll be pleasantly surprised to find how much everyone has matured. We may be plump and wrinkled (see Excuse #3, above) but we're not stupid. Money is not success.

Excuse #5: I was not in a popular clique in school
Rebuttal: Now that we're older and smarter, those cliques have dissolved just like the superficialities they were based on. The only cliques you'll notice at the reunion will be the sound of your joints as you walk around


You know you are getting older when.....
