Beauty and the Beast, Star Trek VI, My SVHS Graduation (it happened in 1991)

I am curious... Who has attended a class reunion of some kind?  Seems like an odd question, right?  I have attended gatherings of like-minded people ( Disney), but these are people I have known in my adult life.  Well, In just a few days I will attend a 20 year reunion of the Saucon Valley High School class of 1991.  Now, before you think things like "twenty years, Steve?" "YOU? No way!" (HEY- why didn't you think that?).  I started to wonder how this little event will play out.  I didn't attend my 10 year reunion.  Mind you it wasn't some rebellious act, my work/personal schedule just didn't allow for it. And now I wonder: "What will it be like?"

Full disclosure, I keep in touch with (or read about on occasion) quite a few people I went to school with on Facebook.  I have a pretty good idea for what is going on in their published lives. By "published lives" I mean the facts that are part of knowing what's going on.  I think this has become the norm in this day and age of social media.  One interesting thing I have noticed, though- Many of the people (maybe you) in my Facebook circle are not necessarily the folks I ran around with back in the day.  I find this to be a unique dynamic.  It's exciting to think that those I was close to will be there, as well as those I knew, but maybe wasn't as close to.  We were a small school, relatively speaking (just over 100 in our class as I recall).  I remember that senior year I was one of two voted "Most Friendly" (You don't say, Steve). Not "most popular" or "most liked" (which is OK with me)... but most friendly.  Here's hoping that continues this weekend with everyone who will be there.

What are your class reunion thoughts?  Have you attended your own?  Did you bypass this part of your life?  AND for the curious... The pictures are a little walk down amnesia lane with me and those in the class of 1991.
