By now, many of you have likely received a message from one of the committee members asking you to submit your contact information. We are attempting to get an e-mail address, phone number (home or cell) and physical address from each classmate.
One of the things we are wondering is how far classmates live from the Metro East area. From the data that we have so far, we have a form of contact information for approximately 200 of the nearly 400 classmates from the Class of ’92. About 150 of those classmates live in the St. Louis region and with the another 45 classmates living out of the area or state.
Roughly 60% of the class uses the social media site Facebook and some even use Twitter. By the way, if you are on Twitter you can follow us there @kahoks92.
We will publish a list of who we are looking for soon so please check back and look at our Lost and Found page. Please, if you know how to contact anyone on the list we would appreciate an e-mail with information so we can follow up with that person.
The Collinsville High School Class of ’92 reunion committee met again last night at Jennifer Osaben’s house to discuss the progress of the group since the September meeting.
Our main goal for the reunion is to make this fun and include as many people as possible. We want classmates to feel comfortable in reuniting with former classmates by renewing old friendships and making new ones.
The reunion committee is excited to announce that we have secured a location and date for the reunion. The reunion will take place at the Edwardsville Gun Club on Saturday, September 1, 2012. The committee is planning other activities for that weekend including a casual mixer on Friday night and other activities earlier in the day on Saturday. Stay tuned for more details.
Currently, we have researched and contacted several local DJs and a few photographers for the event, but have yet to make any confirmations. One area we are still working on is food. We hope to include a full meal in the evening, but this depends what prices we receive from local caterers. The plan at this point is to offer draft beer free and possibly other drinks, but mixed drinks will be a cash bar.
The goal of the committee is to keep costs of the reunion as low as possible while acting responsible about what we are spending as a group. Therefore, providing your e-mail address to help us get information to you in crucial. This allows us to keep correspondence free and quick. If you haven’t given your contact information to a member of the committee or submitted it yourself, please send it to us at our e-mail address.
The reunion committee will meet again in November to start finalizing some decisions on our to do list. In the next couple of months we will release more details including costs.
