Reunion Planning for Small Graduating Classes
Do you have a small graduating class? Do you want to manage your reunion yourself? Check out these helpful tips.
If your class is a small class, and you feel as if you and your committee can handle it yourselves, we have a few tips for you that might help. As you know with smaller classes, money is a major issue.
So, how can we help you at 1st Class Reunions?
One of the most difficult things in organizing a reunion after 10, 15, 20 years, etc. is locating former classmates. Even the best kept records have to be updated. This is also another upfront cost for the committee, however, without accurate current contact information, there may be little chance of a successful reunion.
This is where 1st Class Reunions can help. We specialize in locating alumni. In fact, our current success rate is finding between 90-95% of your former classmates if we have first name, middle name, last name and a last known address. Just send us a list of missing alumni, whole name preferably, approximate age and location of the high school. For the cost of $3.00 per name, we will make a concerted effort to locate an address and/or phone # of the missing alumni. We will also include additional research for those mailings returned due to "no forwarding address" or wrong individual, example; wrong John A. Smith. Once we have researched the name more than once, we add the name to the missing list if they cannot be located. These names are then provided to the reunion chairperson in the hope that other alumni may know how to contact them.
