The Reunion Project – One Week (6/21)

By Scott Ryan

With one week to go, things are finally falling into place. We’ve got more than a dozen sponsors and donors, and although attendance figures will likely be a little short of initial expectations, we’ve got a real shot at actually breaking even.

We held a fundraiser this week at the same venue where our Friday social will be–not sure yet how much it netted us, but it all counts. We should have 50 or so people there.

We’re expecting over 120 people for Saturday’s event–about one-third of the total number of classmates that we’ve found. Unfortunately, even as we find people, we find a few more that we overlooked.

I’ve also learned about a group of military people that’s meeting the following day. I hope to talk with them too, as they might be able to help locate some of the last few classmates, several of whom likely went into the service after high school.

I’ve decided that I should keep looking for those last remaining people even after the reunion, since we’ll have to do the same thing all over again five years from now.
