A number of people have mentioned a point, about the organizing of reunions, that is well worth passing along for the organizers of future MCHS reunions – by which, I mean reunions of ’70s and ’80s grads.
When organizing a reunion, it would be great to have one person, from each graduation year, take on the responsibility of reaching out to as many people as possible, from their graduation year.
This approach was used for the Y2K Reunion, held in Montreal, and was very effective.
For this reunion (the MCHS ’60s Reunion), we’ve adopted an informal system, whereby members of the organizing team have made a point of reaching out to people in their graduation year.
Also, some alumni, outside of the organizing team, have taken the initiative to contact others in their graduation year. Their initiative has led to some good results – increased registration. We owe thanks to every person who has helped us ensure that we have a good turnout for the reunion.
As the song goes: This Could Be the Last Time
The current reunion will likely be the last time a group of MCHS ’60s grads will have the opportunity to meet at a gathering of this size.
We are delighted that this reunion we will have a good turnout. We will also make a point of sharing highlights from the reunion online later, so that people can participate through social media, even if they are not able to attend in person.
