Photographs are one of the main features of a high school reunion. Simply put, it is amusing to see yourself when young, maybe geeky or pretty, whatever it is, and it should be a fond memory. To recapture the photos of the past, put on display photos of classmates. Use large enough boards that can hold as many photos and that which can be placed around the reunion venue for all to look at and sigh”¦ “˜Remember those days?’
Apart from using boards, one can utilize the technology by making a slide show or a photo video of all the photos of previous classmates. Project these photos on a large screen projector for everyone’s viewing.
