So, last weekend was my 10 year high school reunion. Saturday we had a dinner for classmates & spouses. It was really nice, we got to see each other after a 10 year break. I was really excited about this event, but was a bit surprised that I was the only person who came that doesn't live in Washington. Perhaps it was just a bad weekend for people, but I wish a little more effort had been made by some. There were about 33 people in my class, and 13 were there. Overall it was a nice size group, but it sure would have been nice to see everyone.

On Sunday afternoon we had a picnic for the families. This was very poorly attended. I understand that some without kids didn't want to come b/c they aren't particularly smitten with children, but even those with kids didn't make a good showing. It was a bit disappointing, after all the hard work that some people made to organize the weekend. I'm really glad I went and got to see those who did deign to grace us with their presence. Hopefully we'll get a better turnout at the next one, whenever that may be............


  1. Well sorry to hear it was kind of a bust. Mine is next year and I wonder what the turn out is going to be like. There are people I really want to see.....and others I don't. But I guess you have to take the good with the bad.

    Glad you had a good time though.

  2. I wish there had been more people there with you. The only thing that I can think of is that people would be more interested in the later reunions. David's is sometime this year but he does not plan to attend until 20 or 25 years. Myself, I'd love to go to mine next year. That just depends on where we are at that point. We won't be in Chi-town forever...

  3. I am glad you made it! I was disappointed by the turn out too, especially since a lot of the people that didn't show live within an hour's drive. Oh well, it was fun to see the people that did show.

  4. Hey, I didn't make it b/c I was taking my youth group on a service project that week. It would have been nice to see some of the peeps. -PE
