Most reunions happen every five to ten years. They are a great way to connect with friends from elementary, junior high, high school or college. Whether you’re carpooling with friends you knew from your school or bringing a date, it’s more enjoyable if the venue is a good one. Savory food and drink, an appealing atmosphere and crowd all contribute to a successful event.
Here are some great school reunion venues to remind you of happy, fun days with fellow classmates:
A Barn: Like the movie, Footloose, the fun, and dancing can occur in a barn. The smell of hay, music, and friendships inspire a rollicking good time.
The Beach: Want to feel young again? Go to the beach! The waves edging to the shoreline and relaxing ocean breezes are bound to make you and your school friends reminisce about the good old days, involving plenty of sitting by bonfires and toasting marshmallows. It’s a great place to connect again and celebrate living.
A Movie Theater: Want to relive your high school or college years? Show a slide show and celebrate all the fun times. Have popcorn, soda, and watch a movie together after. Rent out a theater and gather your guests for a star-studded evening.
A Cruise: The sun is just going down and the sky is full of golden hues. You can have your love with you on a magical, starry night, along with your friends from high school or college. The night is young and you’re ready for drinks and appetizers. It’s a great place, on the ocean or a bay to laugh and laugh some more.
A Scavenger Hunt: There’s nothing like going to the actual school you attended and remembering all the places you used to hang out…on the quad, in the cafeteria, or on the soccer field. Why not have teams where people can search for reminders of their homerooms or majors? The more creative the better. And a reward of pizza and beer after wouldn’t be so bad either.
A Service Activity-Joining together in the spirit of helping others is a great way to reconnect. Even if you didn’t volunteer together in high school, college or junior high, there’s nothing wrong with getting involved in helping nearby communities. Some ideas for service projects are beach cleanups, helping the homeless, volunteering to read to blind children, or helping out the elderly. There’s always a positive reward when serving and it doesn’t involve money…giving back is extremely fulfilling, especially with a group of friends and former classmates.
