“What ever happened with so-and-so?” and “Do you remember what’s-his-name? He was a junior when we were freshmen, right?” We all hear questions like that at reunions! Along with those is the common parting comment, “We should get together more often.”
Alums have told us that, when they come back to La Salle for reunions, they are really hopeful to see lots of their old friends and former teachers. Alums have also told us that they wished they could see people in classes before and after their own. After all, you played together on sports teams, performed together in plays, worked together on rallies. A reunion is not just about being a class, important as that is. A reunion is also about being Lancers together.
Alumni suggested that we respond by changing the way we hold reunions at La Salle. So, that is exactly what the Alumni Association has done. The Alumni Association now hosts Decades Reunions which have been a huge success. The Decades Reunions follow a 5 year cycle and each class is given the option of having their ow significant anniversary reunion (like the 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 year milestones) on their own. The 2000s will have their own decade reunion once everyone through 2009 has celebrated a 10 Year Reunion.
