ANNOUNCEMENTS

Hello again, WHS Class of ’70!

It’s us again, your friendly WHS Fifty-Plus-Two Year Reunion Committee just checking in and updating you on our progress toward our September celebration. We are thrilled with the response we are receiving! Thank you to those who have made our “Money People” aka Arlene and John, happy by sending in their registrations. I hope yours is among them – if not, and you’re hesitating, we get it. You aren’t sure. But, please, we want you to join us. 

Now if you need a good reason, we thought of 10.  So here goes – one of these should motivate you to register!

Reason #10 Because you won’t know unless you go!

Reason #9 Some classmates are traveling thousands of miles to be there. There are even planes involved. So far, we have classmates traveling from California, Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, South Carolina, and well, Wisconsin. We know that WI isn’t far but hey – they’re crossing a state line. And they want to see and talk with you. It’s true. We do. 

Reason #8 Do you want your yearbook picture to be the last thing we remember about you? Added plus: You won’t have to wear a tie to the reunion. Or that blouse with the Peter Pan collar you hated but you wore it because your mom loved it. You can wear whatever you want! 

Reason #7 Few events offer the opportunity to go back in time and laugh like a teenager. And listen to songs we loved so much. Color my World anyone? Stairway to Heaven? Please send your favorite song to add to our playlist. We’re going to play them all. Feel free to sing along. Mike will add your favorite to his list.

Reason #6 There is no dress code. No one will be checking to see if your hair touches your collar or whether your skirt touches the floor when you kneel. There will be no dress code sit in.

Reason #5 At a reunion, every one of us will show up fifty-two years older. Name badges will have huge type and feature our yearbook pics! The number 70 will still figure prominently at the reunion – it will just be, for most of us, our current age. See what we did there?

Reason #4 Because you can’t share a hug or a laugh on Facebook or through Zoom. A few FB messages or “likes” on your Christmas picture with your grandchildren are not a conversation. We’ve all been highly isolated for the last two years. It’s time to get together, share a laugh, reach out and be happy we are all together one more time. 

Reason #3 It’s not about who you were then or who you hung out with or dated once upon a time. It’s about who you are now. Tell us your stories. Bring pics of your grandchildren or your fur babies. We want to see them. We want to see you.

Reason #2 It’s more fun to relive memories with those who shared them with you. (Spoiler alert: Someone may be able to remember that teacher’s name that you can’t.) What was the name of that guy with the squeaky shoes who taught civics? Remember the burning bush in the Scarlet Letter? If you were in Señora Ohman’s Spanish class you will not be required to conjugate any verb into the future perfect tense. Or solve any math problem that involves Train A and Train B. Reunions are a lot more fun than science class. There is music. And food. And no math. We promise.

Reason #1 Someone there is hoping to see you. Yes, you. Reconnect with old friends, make new friends. Chat. Mingle. Laugh and reminisce. We had good times, we had hard times, we traveled through high school  ... together. Some of us have known one another since elementary school. And we’re still here. Let’s celebrate the journey that has brought us together, once again.

As John and Paul said, “There are places I'll remember … All my life, though some have changed.” Mike, can you put that one on the list, please? 

We have all changed. So, let’s gather once more and share our memories and make new ones.
