I organised a fiftieth of our Grade 8 class a couple of years ago. Any attempt to revive the spirit of that momentous occasion has fallen flat. Maybe my school mates are waiting for the 55th. How many of us will remain and be compos mentis by then?
My primary school had a reunion once, and I intended on going, but I forgot the date and missed it. My secondary school held a reunion for past students every five years, and I always planned to go to that. But then the headmaster retired before the five years, and the reunion never came.
I could not imagine anything worse than a group of people who do not know each other getting together because they all happened to, at one time live in the same location and were born in the same year. All trying to out do each other with better jobs, cars and bigger houses
Yes. First one was 40 years later and have been continuing every year since although numbers are decreasing all the time as ill health take some and location proves not to be as suitable as other venues had been.
Feeling rather flattered. Just turned 70 and met a woman at a conference yesterday who asked if I attended primary school A and secondary school B. She then gave my maiden name and told me I had not changed. Really looking forward to my children's choir reunion in March! That's me on the left. I definitely look a little different today.
To cap it off, I am organising a reunion of kids from my childhood streets at the end of April. We used to walk to school together and play in the street after school until our Mums called us in for dinner.
