Start a Reunion Committee

Traditionally class officers initiate the planning process of WLHS reunions, although any eager classmate may make the first move. Download the reunion planning kit here. For additional questions, contact Erin Krug at 414-453-4567 ext. 2012 or erin.krug@wlhs.org.

Most reunion committees allow one year for planning. Informal gatherings require less preparation. Talk to former classmates and ask for their help. In addition, a short notice may be printed in the Contact magazine to generate reunion committee members.

Once the committee members have been determined, a planning meeting should be held to brainstorm ideas and develop an initial plan. Continue meeting with the group on a regular basis until the date of your event.
A reunion coordinator should be chosen to serve as the contact person for the class.  As plans are confirmed, please contact Erin Krug at WLHS (414-453-4567 ext. 2012 or erin.krug@wlhs.org) so we may update your reunion information on the website and in the Contact magazine.

The reunion committee is responsible for printing and mailing reunion invitations and reminder notices. Consider sending an initial “save the date” postcard or email approximately nine months prior to the date. Also, consider setting up a class reunion website. To get a class list contact Erin Krug (414-453-4567 ext. 2012 or erin.krug@wlhs.org) at WLHS for a listing of your classmates and their current contact information. Mailing labels are also available upon request.

Most reunion committees include food, invitation, mailing, and miscellaneous expenses (i.e., entertainment, decorations, etc.) in the “ticket” price for the event.  A checking account should be established for reunion income to be deposited and expenses paid. As part of your reunion, you can include a tour of WLHS.

After the reunion, share a reunion summary (a short paragraph) and up to three photos from your event. This information may be E-mailed to Erin Krug (erin.krug@wlhs.org) or mailed to WLHS. Please send promptly (within six weeks of the event) so we may create a Reunion Recap newsletter for your classmates and mail shortly after your event.

Don’t see your reunion here? Chances are your class needs a few people to form a reunion committee to get one started.
