As the years roll by …

Every reunion has a distinct personality, said Cyndi Clamp, president of the National Association of Reunion Managers, a trade group for professional reunion organizers. She describes how things change over the decades.

10th: This is the least well-attended and the most pretentious, with many people focused on how they look, what kind of car they drive and what their date looks like. Because most people are in the same general place in life, many are measuring themselves against their classmates.

20th: With more perspective and life experiences under their belts, classmates care much less about superficial success and are more earnestly curious about how people are doing in their families and careers. The 20-year is the most well-attended and a time when people's paths start to diversify.

30th: The 30th gets more interesting because people's lives are all over the board with divorces, career changes and kids of all ages. Classmates show greater confidence and fewer spouses and guests come along because people don't feel that they need someone by their side.

40th: As retirement nears, people's lives start to resemble each other's once again. There's less drinking and more talking, with conversations focusing on "remember when." People find value in being around others they knew when they were younger because it makes them feel younger.

50th: The golden reunion is the second-most well-attended. There's a sense that this could be the last time you see these people. Plus, people go because they are able to attend. Like the 40th, nostalgia is strong.

Beyond 50th: These are much smaller reunions, and those who do attend are just really glad to be able to be there.

Is Facebook killing the high school reunion?


Rachel Riebow suspects the social networking site is one reason it has been like pulling teeth to get her old classmates to attend their 10-year reunion at Armwood High School in Seffner, Fla. Why bother when you already know what everyone's up to, and can so easily connect with the people you wish to see?

But for older generations, Facebook has helped find missing classmates and drive interest in the reunion. Patti Salvage, who is organizing her 40th reunion at Banks High School in Birmingham, Ala. said reconnecting on Facebook has made her feel close to her old classmates again.

"I got a network of my school friends back together," Salvage said. "Because of that, I'm really looking forward to seeing!"

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Michael Wilkes


After high school I attended Lycoming College in Williamsport,PA. I graduated with honors majoring in Political Science and Philosophy. I next attended law school at Temple University in Philadelphia where I graduated in 1983. After graduation, I moved to Brevard County, Florida (where the space shuttle is launched) where I worked for the Public Defender's office for 3 years. Please note this move brought me close to my bud, Frank Wesighan, and we have practiced in neighboring counties ever since. I left the P.D. office in May, 1986 to take a position with a multi-county law firm which primarily practiced in the areas of personal injury and workers' compensation defense. I stayed with this firm for app. 6 years when I left to start my own firm which I have operated with two different partners.

I have been married twice. My first wife, Kimberly, and I were married for app. 6 years. We had no children (only a dog). My second and current wife is Darlene. We have been married for the last 20 years during which time she has also been a integral part of my practice as the bookkeeper,office manager and administrator. Our daughter, Jordan Kaitlynn, was born in May of 2001. Eventually, Darlene her full time work withthe practice to be a full time mother and to volunteer at Jordan's school.

Four years ago I merged my trial practice with a larger, state wide firm, Jones, Hurley & Hand, P.A., and my primary office is now in Orlando.

WAS IT ONLY YESTERDAY?

Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?
Was it only yesterday we "hung out" at the Shore Mall together?
Was it only yesterday we went to the Atlantic Drive-In with our friends to watch a movie?
Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?
Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?
Was it only yesterday we heard of one of our classmates passing?
And thought..."it seems like only yesterday"
