Plan Your Reunion

If you are interested in helping to plan your reunion, we have lots of resources to help you get started!

Here are some steps to facilitate the planning process.

1. Contact Brigitte Foley at (513) 681-1800 x1134 or foleyb@mercymcauley.org at the very beginning of the process. Mercy McAuley wants to know of any reunion planning that is happening.

2. Gather a committee – classmates who may have run around in different circles.

3. Choose a date. Choose a location. We encourage you to have your reunion here at Mercy McAuley, in the cafeteria. We don’t have a rental fee. There are a limited number of Saturday nights available in the fall so please contact Brigitte to see which dates are available.

4. Decide whether or not to include spouses and guests, indicate this on the invitation. You might also consider having more than one event (i.e. girls’ night, picnic for family members, etc.).

5. When deciding on a price, make sure it covers all expenses: postage, invitations, fees, food, drinks, postage, DJ, memory books, and/or decorations. You are encouraged to donate extra money to the Annual Fund or alumnae legacy scholarships as a class gift.

6. Send invitations and/or promote the reunion through social media. Mercy McAuley provides the list of graduates in an excel document upon meeting with a member of the advancement team in-person. We can also provide mailing labels. Mercy McAuley will promote reunions through the alumnae Facebook page and/or e-newsletters.

Although Facebook is a great way to spread the word, recently some classes have not sent invitations and relied solely on social media. We want to make sure that no alumna feels left out of a reunion. Not everyone is on social media and reunion planners need to be sensitive to that.

7. Let Mercy McAuley know if you want to invite Sisters of Mercy and/or former teachers.

8. Allow enough time for a Mercy McAuley representative to proof the invitation (an extra set of eyes always helps).

9. Checks should be made payable to the person from your class who is handling the bulk of the expenses (venue rental, food, etc.). Money needs to be handled by a class representative, not mailed directly to Mercy McAuley so you can keep track of the rsvp’s.

10. Be sure to follow up invitations with phone calls and/or emails. Spread out the jobs among committee members.
