Hard to Convince?

If this website hasn't stirred your enthusiasm for spending a weekend with your classmates- the friends who helped you become the person that you are today, we urge you to think again.

The following reasons have been tried and are unacceptable.


Excuse #1: I'm overweight.

Rebuttal: You're not alone. Gaining weight is Nature's way of assuring that we keep up with the times and won't be wearing the same clothes we wore in high school.


Excuse #2: I'm a different person than I was in high school

Rebuttal: Lucky for you, we ALL are. Let's face it: we could only have improved.


Excuse #3: I don't look as good as I'd like. I (choose one or more) am bald, have wrinkles, saddlebags, grey hair and no one will recognize me.

Rebuttal: Guess what! You won't recognize anyone else, either. Using the reunion committee as a representative sample, our whole class looks like a "before" photo in a plastic surgery ad.


Excuse #4: I'm not successful (i.e. rich or famous).

Rebuttal: You'll be pleasantly surprised to find how much everyone has matured. We may be plump and wrinkled (see Excuse #3, above) but we're not stupid. Money is not success.


Excuse #5 : I was not in a popular clique in school.

Rebuttal: Now that we're old and smart, those cliques have dissolved just like the superficialities they were based on. The only cliques you'll notice at the reunion will be the sound of your joints as you walk around.


Excuse #6: I don't think it's worth the price to attend.

Rebuttal: How much money did you spend to have lunch at Pup 'n Taco? I assure you that your dollars will go much further here. And when you figure in inflation and how hard money was to earn back then- it's almost the same price!


Excuse #7: Don't push me, I don't NEED to come!

Rebuttal: Wrong! If you remember the contract you signed as a condition of graduation:

"Attendance at all future high school reunions is mandatory. Lame excuses will not be tolerated. Any alumni seeking a waiver from this rule must submit a written request to the reunion committee no less than 120 days prior to the date of reunion. Requests must be signed by a parent or guardian. If no parent is available, a pardon signed by the sitting governor of the state in which you reside will suffice."
