    Decide upon the budget. The first and foremost thing to decide is the budget. Before getting started decide how much you want to put into the celebration. According to this budget, you can see how many members you want to invite. Location you will be selecting...etc. If you want, you can ask your guests to pool in some amount. Of course, only if you are comfortable doing that.

    Do or hire some successful coordinating people. How about Uncle Sam, who is everyone's 'favorite' and loves to manage things. Asking him to become a coordinator and spare some time for the management of the reunion celebration should not be a bad idea. It is better idea to designate 2 people, so that all the blame does not get on his shoulders. You can hope this blaming situation never arises. And what are these coordinators supposed to do. They will be coordinating with all the members and will be fixing the date and time. They will be also handing other small things, like deciding upon the menu...etc.

    Choose some games and activities. This is the success mantra. No one would like to attend a dull party where elders are just chit chatting because they have nothing else to do and kids are playing some game to pass their time. Some activities are a must. Signing family T-shirts is an all time favorite. For this, you will need some white T-shirts and markers. Mark each T-shirt with reunion year and then ask everyone to sign each other's T-shirts, Everyone will love it and take it home as a favor.
