How to Ease
Feeling anxious about your reunion? Tips for a stress-free
reunion experience from licensed professional clinical counselor Tina Grismer,
Miami Valley Hospital:
Before the reunion, try to connect with someone you know is attending and
possibly go together.
Consider helping with the reunion planning as a way to connect with former
classmates before the event.
See if a partner or spouse will go with you.
Focus on what there is to look forward to and the pros of attending — not the
Have realistic expectations for yourself and the event.
Remember that you can go for an hour and, if you are not having a good time,
"Reunions really are a lot of fun - really!" - JH
Excuses for Not Attending a Class Reunion:
- I don’t have
time (family and work obligations).
- It's too far away (travel expenses).
- Not happy with my appearance, excuse.
- Not interested (nothing in common
with class mates).
- I already keep in touch with everyone I would want to see.
- I'm too embarrassed (not successful enough; nothing
to brag about)

5 Reasons To Attend Your High School Reunion
By Elaine Ambrose
You wear your favorite yoga pants and the “This Wine is Making Me
Awesome” t-shirt, sit down with a bag of cookies, and proceed to
open the mail. Then you choke when you see the letter about the
pending high school reunion only six months away. There is no way
you’ll lose 50 pounds in time, so you tackle that second bag of
cookies before it gets stale. And you cringe because your title of
“Most Likely to Succeed” turned into “Most Likely to Wear a Bathrobe
to the Store.”
In my hometown of Wendell, Idaho, the
annual combined class reunion includes graduates from the past 60
years. All ages come together to reminisce, shake their heads at the
rambunctious youngsters, and moan about the loss of the playground
“Kids can’t even play anymore,” they mumble. “I remember how we fell
out of trees, crashed off the monkey bars, and rode our bikes
without a helmet. I hit my head so many times I forgot my name.
These children will never know how to have fun like we did.”

5 Reasons To Attend Your
High School Reunion
(continued from above)
The old-timers nod and pontificate about the pending doom of
society. Then the band begins playing a concoction of
Country, Blue Grass, and Tent Revival music and the mood
changes to positive reflection. Even the most caustic
attendees adjust their suspenders and tap their
manure-covered boots in sporadic rhythms.
“Look at ol’ Mr. Brown,” someone mentions about an
elderly man dancing alone in the grass. “He was my parent’s
teacher back in ‘63. Looks like he’s still breathing.”
“I noticed Harley still has his own teeth.” A
collective gasp of approval comes from the group. “Did you
see Wanda’s fake hairpiece? Looks like a muskrat crawled
onto her head and died.” We’re all suddenly back in high
Even if you hated school, you don’t want to miss the
excitement and renewed camaraderie that could result from
attending the reunion. Here are five reasons to go.
1. It’s nice to see the popular people living
ordinary lives. Now, the Student Body President runs a
small eldercare facility, the Homecoming Queen works
part-time in the Post Office, and the athletic star lives in
a rehab center somewhere in the Midwest. The worthless class
clown, however, flew to the reunion in a private jet.
2. The 10th reunion is High School Part II. The
same people still try to organize, direct, and cheer-lead
the group. But by then, the others can drink alcohol so the
orchestrated program is more tolerable.
3. The 20th Reunion encourages interesting liaisons.
For those still single, divorced, or looking, suddenly the
frumpy girl from History 301 looks cute or the nerd from
English Class learned how to dress without white socks.
Sparks fly and couples are holding hands and promising to
stay in touch. There’s only a 10 percent chance these flings
will last after the sun rises the next morning.
4. The 30th Reunion is why Spanx was invented.
Middle-age classmates have lost hair and gained bellies.
They pull out reading glasses and show photos of their
children. Some have grandchildren. The party is over by
5. The 40th Reunion brings the Memory Wall.
Photos of smiling faces beam from a poster showing those who
have died. It’s a stark reminder that we’re not invincible.
The crowd that cheered together and stomped to the beat of
“We are the Champions” is missing several members. We hug
each other with intention and share photos of grandkids.
If you receive the invitation to your class reunion,
don’t automatically throw it into the trash. Consider a
nostalgic visit back to a time and place that formed an
important part of your life. You can attend for a few hours,
if only to celebrate your current life without all the crap
and drama from high school. It’s okay to rent a luxury
sports car for the day.
