This is a fun idea for your high school reunion. As a reunion icebreaker, post this question to see how your classmates might answer: Before our next reunion, I want to…
How interesting to find out what your classmates want to accomplish in their lifetimes. Be sure to take pictures of the responses so you can share on Facebook or on your reunion website after the reunion. And you’ll want copies to include 5 or 10 years later at your next reunion event.
There are a few ways you can create a question and answer board:
- Hang poster board around the room with the question and appropriate lines for the answers. You may want to leave space for classmates to also write in their name.
- Those large post-it self-stick papers you see at conferences would also work well. Pre-write the question on multiple pages and place the post-it pad on an easel. As the paper fills up with answers, take off the top sheet and stick it to the wall. By the end of the evening, you’ve added to your reunion decorations with personal responses from your classmates.
- An old chalkboard or large dry erase board would also work well. Maybe the venue hosting your reunion has something in their office that you may use or rent for a small fee.
If you want to collect the answers before the reunion, ask the question on the reunion registration form. Use the responses as part of a slide show, or print out and place on cocktail tables around the room. This would be a great conversation starter during the evening.
