As the years roll by …

Every reunion has a distinct personality, said Cyndi Clamp, president of the National Association of Reunion Managers, a trade group for professional reunion organizers. She describes how things change over the decades.

10th: This is the least well-attended and the most pretentious, with many people focused on how they look, what kind of car they drive and what their date looks like. Because most people are in the same general place in life, many are measuring themselves against their classmates.

20th: With more perspective and life experiences under their belts, classmates care much less about superficial success and are more earnestly curious about how people are doing in their families and careers. The 20-year is the most well-attended and a time when people's paths start to diversify.

30th: The 30th gets more interesting because people's lives are all over the board with divorces, career changes and kids of all ages. Classmates show greater confidence and fewer spouses and guests come along because people don't feel that they need someone by their side.

40th: As retirement nears, people's lives start to resemble each other's once again. There's less drinking and more talking, with conversations focusing on "remember when." People find value in being around others they knew when they were younger because it makes them feel younger.

50th: The golden reunion is the second-most well-attended. There's a sense that this could be the last time you see these people. Plus, people go because they are able to attend. Like the 40th, nostalgia is strong.

Beyond 50th: These are much smaller reunions, and those who do attend are just really glad to be able to be there.

Is Facebook killing the high school reunion?


Rachel Riebow suspects the social networking site is one reason it has been like pulling teeth to get her old classmates to attend their 10-year reunion at Armwood High School in Seffner, Fla. Why bother when you already know what everyone's up to, and can so easily connect with the people you wish to see?

But for older generations, Facebook has helped find missing classmates and drive interest in the reunion. Patti Salvage, who is organizing her 40th reunion at Banks High School in Birmingham, Ala. said reconnecting on Facebook has made her feel close to her old classmates again.

"I got a network of my school friends back together," Salvage said. "Because of that, I'm really looking forward to seeing!"

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Gary Watts


Upon reaching 50 years old I became a Boeing 767 pilot. After 33 years in Aviation who knew flying jets not just as a Flight Engineer but as a Pilot was so much FUN!
The only problem is... It takes me away from my lil girl! I don't like that at all! At the ripe old age of 46 and upon deep consideration (and a long search for the right partner and potential mother of my children) I finally had a child (5 years ago). Well, my wife did. If I had known how much fun it was I would have done it years ago (with the right woman/mom)! Life in Oregon is incredible and although the NJ crowd is often missed, including family. We love the NorthWest. Come out and visit us sometime!
Thinking about the fact that it has been 34 count them 34 years since we celebrated our HS graduation together it brings things into perspective. Those of us still here have lived through so many trials and tribulations, heartache and heartbreak, laughs and giggles, history in the making and icons departing. The fact that we still wish to get together and share our precious time says volumes as to who we are and have become as friends and classmates.
Thank you to all who have worked so hard to produce this venue so we may find a reason and location to once again share our stories.

Gary
Ok, the saga continues...
My beautiful, sweet daughter is now turning 8 and she is the only love in my life and that fills my heart completely! Her mother and I have legally separated until we divorce in a year. Life has many twists and turn and as long as we keep leaning into the curves we can stay on this ride. My job has now taken me from western hemisphere flying to North, West, East, and Southern hemisphere travels. Now I am away from home WAY too much. Thank goodness for Facebook, Skype, and email!
It was wonderful seeing everyone at the Reunion last summer and I once again extend an open invitation for all who are planning travels through Oregon to stop by and share in a fine local vintage and the beauty of the Pacific Northwest! Love to all! G

A new chapter:
At the age of 56 the opportunity to retire from flying and spend more time with my now 10yo daughter Jackeline presented itself.
I am now 57 and have been retired for almost a year. What a year! I am now involved in an incredible music and wine venue in the Applegate Valley in Southern Oregon. Not only have I been wonderfully blessed by great friends and family but I now have an ever growing family of amazingly talented Musicians and Singer/Songwriters. Funny thing is.... I am often drawn to the memories of our "Break Time" Quartet in the hallway of Absegami singing Do Wop with the boys!
To be continued....

WAS IT ONLY YESTERDAY?

Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?
Was it only yesterday we "hung out" at the Shore Mall together?
Was it only yesterday we went to the Atlantic Drive-In with our friends to watch a movie?
Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?
Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?
Was it only yesterday we heard of one of our classmates passing?
And thought..."it seems like only yesterday"

Don't let time pass you by. Get involved and support our website and help capture memories for us all to enjoy before they are lost forever...
