Planning Tips

Keep these tips in mind when planning your meeting or reunion to create a successful event!

  • Start early - people need to be given enough time to save money to travel to the reunion and plan vacations from work
  • Create tasks for everyone to ensure there is fair distribution of work and everyone feels involved
  • Use social networking sites to keep everyone up-to-date on the reunion
  • Put together a scavenger hunt using clues from your family's history
  • Set out disposable cameras so everyone can participate in the memory making
  • Be sure to have plenty of activities like coloring books and board games for younger family members
  • Send out Save the Date invitations well in advance of the reunion date to reduce scheduling conflicts
  • Plan for some flexible time to account for any unforeseen circumstances
