SUGGESTIONS FOR
HAVING A REUNION

Organize a great reunion easily (and inexpensively) by drawing on us for help. We can provide:

  • address lists of classmates from our database, plus mailing labels and return labels with the Mepham logo.
  • guidance in finding your missing classmates utilizing our database for siblings, our "Missing Classmates" lists on our web site, and guidance in using the Internet to find people
  • guide to organizing a reunion with sample letters. Pirate clipart too!
  • publicity on our web site and publications.
  • cash advance loan to help with printing and postage costs of your first mailing.

The value of multiple activities:
Recently one of our reunion organizers wrote to us and said, "Of the 222 located for our 40th reunion about 70 classmates attended the dinner dance with wives, etc. I noted, however, that 170 attended at least one [of the several functions: dinner dance, golf, cocktail party, pool party, and breakfast-tour at Mepham]. I had the photographs and counted the faces. All in all, it was a success and I intend to repeat the action."

Many Mepham classes have planned a reunion weekend to include some of the following in addition to the dinner/dance:

  • Friday night get together at local pub/hotel/classmate's house
  • Reunion booklet with addresses, photos, and bios
  • Displays of memorabilia
  • Coordination of reunion with Homecoming Weekend or Bellmore Street Festival
  • Breakfast or brunch at Mepham and tour of the school
  • Caravan down to Jones Beach and lunch at the Boardwalk Restaurant
  • Visit the Castles in the Sand Museum at Jones Beach
  • Alumni Choir appearance
  • Sunday picnic at a local park
  • Tour of Bellmore/Merrick
  • Mepham souvenir T-shirts, pirate pins, caps, mugs, sweat shirts sold by Mepham PTA, sports boosters, or classes. (see web site)
