Kicking it Up a Notch
Reunions are not like they use to be, they are even better. Schools like Harrison High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado are taking reunions to an entirely different level. They are kicking it up a notch and have started hosting mega reunions. Reunions that combine classes throughout the years.
Creating a Mega Reunion
These aren't your ordinary reunions, these are mega events. They give alumni an opportunity to visit their old stomping grounds and to meet up with old as well as new friends. The attendees look forward to touring their old neighborhoods, checking out their (once) favorite hang outs and taking in all the new construction and designs that have occurred throughout the years in their old neighborhood.
It is an Exciting Time
The Harrison High School Reunion is open to both former and current staff members of District #2. The event takes place in three year increments. They hosted the first one during the summer of 2009 and the next one will be held the weekend of July 20-22, 2012.
The 2012, festivities will include a meet and greet on Friday, a tour of the Ft. Carson Museum on Saturday and an alumni get-together that evening which includes hors d'oeuvres and a dance. Then on Sunday the reunion committee is hosting a family BBQ which will be located on school grounds. The Athletic Director is providing tours of the school throughout the BBQ and entertainment will be provided by one of their own, guitarist Mo Orosco.
A Memory Making Generational Event
The Harrison High School All Year Reunion is open to alumni from the 1950’s up through to the present graduation class. There are some alumni from those early years that had children who also attended Harrison and some even have grandchildren and great grandchildren that attended. From cousins to brothers and sisters to neighborhood friends this reunion opens the doors for so many memories and conversations. It brings with it a small town atmosphere, to even the biggest of schools.
This reunion is truly one of a kind and an event that everyone looks forward to. It’s the latest craze in reunion planning.
It brings with it the best of all worlds. Individual graduating years can still congregate together, and yet it is fun to run into your best friend's sister or neighbor who lived across the street.
The experience is priceless, and you'd be surprise how much fun it is listen to the stories from those grads who graduated in the late 1950's. Once those stories start flowing, it is exciting seeing just how much everyone has in common.
Growing up on the same side of town, attending the same school decades apart is pretty cool. High School grads have an amazing bond.
