Then this past weekend, I got an email from the foreign exchange student who had found my address and she told me that she was going to be visiting the U.S. here this summer and thought it would be great to see everyone in a class reunion. Would it be possible if I tracked everyone down and arranged it?
At first I thought it would be a lot of work but due to my incredible cyber
I have reached four more of my classmates with two still outstanding. I've left phone message and sent a message via a social network site that one belongs too and I am in contact with a person who works with the younger brother of the third. I tried calling another of the latter's younger brothers and he didn't have a phone number, married name or address so I'm guessing I'm dealing with some sort of family estrangement.
This whole thing would have been much easier ten years ago before everyone had cell phones and started dropping land lines rendering most paper directories obsolete. I find myself calling siblings and parents still with land lines to obtain cell phone numbers of those who don't. Hopefully the rest of the work will be easier than the handful of hours I have spent so far and perhaps by this time next week I can wrap up the duty of class reunion organizer. Later this summer we will then hold our 19th year reunion which I'm guessing if things go as I predict, will be the last one we will probably have for awhile. Maybe the next one will be our 31rst or some other odd number. After all, our class of eight and one foreign exchange student was anything but typical.
