What a holiday - a meeting day of alumni
Once a year, at the end of January, in social. networks there is a surge in activity. "Classmates", "FaceBook", "Facebook" and "Twitter" are boiling with photo collages from the school album and statuses: "I'm going to the evening of the meeting. Who is with me? ", Or" Guys! It's 20 years gone by! We must meet and discuss! "We sometimes like to meet with the past and at least briefly return to childhood.
On the first Saturday of February the school yard is filled not with parents and children, but with former students - respectable men and beautiful ladies. This holiday is called the alumni meeting day. And again the school bell rings, and tights that have become small desks are torn, and the aged teacher meets on the threshold of the class, and grown-up boys and girls peer into each other's faces, looking for familiar features.
The meeting of graduates of the school is always under the same motto: "Do you remember?" This phrase sounds from all sides. And everyone remembers something that everyone else has forgotten. Old love and resentment, victories and defeats, pranks and exposures emerge. All bad things are forgiven, good savored. To the question: "Well, how are you? Where are you now? "- You should answer quickly and refrain again:" Do you remember? "
Like any self-respecting holiday, the alumni meeting day also has its own rules. And everything begins with a solemn meeting on the threshold of the school, continues with a concert and, after a tour of the school, ends behind closed doors of classes. The concert, which is prepared by the host party, that is, the school, takes place under the same popular motto - "Do you remember?" Given that those who prepare the concert can not objectively remember former graduates or know something about them, the stamps in endless school scenes. The information goes general - "buttons on a chair", "soap board", "again deuce". We have to admit that the originality and diversity of the prom is not spoiled. Therefore, less and less graduates come to these meetings in school. Most often they are gathered at a restaurant or a cafe. To remedy this situation, we should not wait for favors from the school, and plan your own meeting, take care of both entertainment and communication.
To see the school and take care of yourself, and not be bored, for example, a couple of weeks before the holiday, to collect all the photographs of school years in a bunch, what anyone has, and distribute the task to classmates - to collect a story from them with a photo collage. And on the day of the meeting of the graduates, the best story will be chosen, and with the help of a printer or simply on disks will multiply to all comers. Agree, there will already be something to do between the concert and the cafe. And participation in competitions is a good motivator.
The most important aspect of the meeting of alumni is, undoubtedly, communication. And that it does not stop for a minute, you need an "activist and handsome" who knows everything about everyone and knows how to direct the conversation. The class's toastmaster, or as previously said - the cultmass sector. If you think well, then in each class such a person was. He should be given the honor of not letting the rest get bored. This does not mean that he should prepare contests and games. He just has to be all night in communication, to unite his attention the whole class.
There is a note of sadness in this holiday. It's a bitter bitterness that you have to say goodbye again to your childhood and come back to adulthood. But this day gives such an unprecedented charge of energy and optimism that the day of meeting of graduates is worth a visit, at least for the sake of its therapeutic effect.
