How to Ease
Reunion Anxiety

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 cons.

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, leave.

"Reunions really are a lot of fun - really!" - JH

Common 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 equipment.

“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.”

Graduation in the Rose Bowl

One of the best memories of attending Muir was walking across
the world famous Rose Bowl field to accept your diploma.
Only Muir, Pasadena HS and Blair HS can make that amazing claim.
What a thrill, what an honor, what a memory!

Alumni Seeking Reunion Info...

Jeanne Krenz, class of 1947, wants to know if any of her fellow classmates are planning a reunion? If so please let us know.

Notice to Reunion Participants:  

When you have a question or concern about a reunion event posted here, you must direct your comment to the class representative listed for that event for resolution. We only have the information that you see posted.

Notice to Alumni Committees:

While we will gladly work with you on your reunion plans, we will not plan your reunion and we are not responsible for the outcome, the sale of tickets, photographs, memory books, accommodations, travel expenses or any other expense associated with your event.  

We have contact information for members of almost every class. We may share this information with your committee so that you can advise your classmates of your planned event. You must be able to verify that you are sanctioned to represent your class, however.

Make sure that those attending your event have contact information for you and your planning committee members.

We have a "Reunion Planning Guide" with a list of service providers that we recommend. We will, upon request, provide that information to you.

Notice to Professional Event Planners & Service Providers:

We are continuing to interview alumni committees as to which avenues they used to plan their reunions. Based on their responses and other data, we are compiling a list of venues, bands, DJ's, and other service providers in the greater San Gabriel Valley area that we will recommend to our alumni. If you would like to be considered for inclusion to this list please, contact us so that we may interview you. Inclusion to the list will be solely based on your past performance.



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 school.

     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 10:00 pm.

     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.

Just Go!
     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.
