Subject: Ideas for Reunion

I think a supper barbeque on the Friday afternoon is a super idea. It would be an ice breaker as well as a casual event that people could show up at as they arrive in Westboro for the weekend.

Regarding ideas for a souvenir to take home, I'm not crazy about the T-shirt idea. T-shirts are NOT that attractive on the mature female figure so I rarely wear one unless it is from travel or a group I'm involved with now. I would NOT wear a high school T-shirt because high school was too long ago. What about a coffee mug with the Ranger and WHS 63? We all have coffee mugs with grandchildren on them, etc. and it would be another to add to the collection. Another idea is something on the idea of Boston's little ceramic pot full of baked beans (really choc. covered nuts) or Vermont's little bottles of maple syrup. An inexpensive ceramic dish with something that denotes Westboro---what, I don't know. What denotes Westboro besides the cotton gin? Or is there an inexpensive booklet with the history of the area? That would appeal to me. Having said all that, the best souvenir would be a 8 x 10 photograph of the class today. These are just some ideas to get us thinking!

First, apologies for not participating in the planning event, but car engine and other systems went belly-up this summer - and spirits were as low as "infrastructure."
I'm with Martha - If it takes money - let's use it for present fun - food, music, and/or photo - I have so much "memorabilia" that just gets recycled. I, personally, have too many teeshirts, insulated coffee mugs, regular mugs, that takes up space. For one, I'm into less - but photos really recreate the event and don't take up much room. Blah blah blah. Meri

Looks like the ball is rolling and there are alot of great ideas out there. My wife's class just had their 45th and it too, was a 2 night event held at a local Marriott. The hotel provided for a great atmosphere to mingle during the day, take off on different events, golf, shopping, gambling etc. First night was a cocktail party and the second night was dinner and dancing. As an outsider, I had a great time and we would want our spouses, partners attending our reunion to feel as welcome.

I'm sure we can come up with some kind of souvenior for the reunion that would last awhile and keep our memories alive. I use letter openers, mouse pads, freezer mugs etc for our business and they are well received...and get used. I still(as does Vicky K) use the ruler the First National Bank of Westboro gave us back in '63.

It's great to see the interest that has been generated over the past several months and a special thanks to Ruth, John and the 1st reunion committee.
