Comment: Disappointed son did not receive reunion notice

James Roberts writes:
I received a phone call from my son who graduated ACHS in 2012, last night. He informed me that they were having a 5 year class reunion tonight (9-30-2017) somewhere. He found out by a 3rd party that it was posted on social meeting, which he doesn't have, nor has he ever ever had.

What ever happened to the old notion of picking up the phone or sending out a letter to the effect. I know that I'm old school, but this is not right. From a concerned parent regardless of the age of our children. Thanks, James Roberts

Thanks, James Roberts - First, if CM were sent a notice and didn't post, apologies. We hate when that happens. Secondly, we try to post the news portion of every reunion, and follow-ups, and we know that all other broadcast and print media do as well. Ours, and as far as we know, other traditional media provide the service free. We hope that on the 10 year reunion your son is made aware, by whatever means. - CM
