The Reunion Committee did a fantastic job in planning and organizing our 50 year reunion. They are experts at what they do-searching alumni, organizing the event itself that included the DJ, photographers, and the dinner buffet. Our alumni members were very pleased with the turnout and how well the evening event was so will planned. As part of our planning committee, we made the right decision to place the entire planning in their hands. Their personnel staff ensured that the alumni attendees were taken care of during the event. It was a great gathering, thanks to Reunion Committee!!. I would recommend to anyone having a class reunion, that they seriously consider turning over the entire event planning and coordination to Reunion Committee.
Student Representative, John F. Kennedy H.S.
The Reunion Committee once again did a fantastic job of organizing our 40th High School Reunion.
Everything they promise, they deliver. We have now been
working with them for over twenty years.
The Hotel and Ballroom we selected together was perfect, the food selection was delicious and the
DJ played all the music we requested and then some. The entire staff is extremely professional and
really care about making your event a memorable one.
Thank you again to everyone at The Reunion Committee!

We recently had a 40 year reunion for Grant High School class of 1977. The Reunion Committee, Inc. was so helpful in every way and committed themselves to locating and reaching out to as many classmates as possible. The staff at the reunion was incredible and helped with photos, food and just about everything imaginable. We had over a hundred and sixty classmates that night and you would be hard-pressed to find one that didn't have a great time!
High school reunions come but once every ten years…I highly recommend using The Reunion Committee, Inc. for yours!
Jimmy Friedman, Grant class of 1977 representative
We had an excellent experience with The Reunion Committee! After many decades of putting these gatherings together on our own, we decided to work with the Reunion Committee for our 50th, to relieve some of the stress, and we were so glad we did. They found the venue, set it all up (the room looked lovely!), hired the caterer who provided delicious food, and even took care of the music/d.j. and the photography! We had a green reunion, so it was all by email and saved a lot of time and money. Everyone had a lovely time – can’t wait to see the Memory Album.

I want to thank you on behalf of the Beverly Hills High School Class of 1976 for the outstanding job by The Reunion Committee team in guiding and coordinating with our class committee for over a year, from our first call, to the follow up post reunion. Your team was professional, responsive, and when you made a commitment, you stuck with it, for which we were appreciative. Your guidance with regard to venue choice, your communication with regard to class attendance and your assistance with matters such as the Angel Fund, all were handled in a way that ensured everyone was always comfortable and (as appropriate) informed. Also, the discretion with with the Angel Fund was handled generally was outstanding. The reviews on the reunion were stellar. Classmates were uniformly enthusiastic--about the venue, the format and the overall experience. Thank you again for everything!
Also, as a side note, I would be happy to serve as a reference for you in the future, if class chairpersons have questions.

When I volunteered to plan my classes 20th high school reunion l I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Originally, I thought that I would choose a venue, create a Facebook page and make the plans myself. All of that seemed great in theory. When it came time to execute it I quickly learned that it just wasn’t going to be possible. I contacted The Reunion Committee because they had done our 10 year high school reunion. I wasn’t involved with that but that didn’t matter as they had so much information readily available. Each person I spoke with helped me with various phases of the process. A list of venues was provided and we made a choice on that, then the menu, music, etc. followed. The Reunion Committee was very organized. I received updates on RSVP’s and we really worked together to reach as many classmates as we could. Our reunion was a complete success. I’m still receiving messages thanking me for putting this together and I truly need to thank The Reunion Committee for helping me out.

The Hart High Class of ’86 just celebrated a terrific 30th class reunion and once again we choose The Reunion Committee to put on the whole show. Shelli, Katie, Joyce, Rick and their team were great to work with for our first two reunions, and this time was no different. They made helpful suggestions about venues, and led us to the Paseo Club in Santa Clarita, which worked great for us. The Mexican food buffet was a real hit and a perfect match for the casual indoor/outdoor atmosphere we chose this time around.
TRC took care of all the logistical details which could have been a real hassle, not to mention expense. They were also open to our hiring our own DJ (Richard Blade) and band (Weird Science, fronted by one of our classmates).
This was our first “green reunion.” Thanks to numerous email mailings and postings in our Facebook group, the Reunion Committee was able to reach a large number of our classmates. The Facebook group turned out to be a very effective means of communicating lots of details, especially as the reunion date drew nearer. Surely it helped boost our numbers.
Many of our classmates said this was our best reunion yet. TRC deserves the lion’s share of the credit for the evening's success. We couldn’t have done it without you, and look forward to working together again for our 40th reunion!
Hart High Class of 1986
I was contacted by Rick about assisting in the organization of the 1966 Palisades High 50th reunion. The 10th and 20th were well attended, but the 30th was sparsely attended, I heard there was one, as email addresses were just emerging. The Reunion Committee team did a terrific job of doing the initial compilation of phone numbers, addresses, and emails from the 1966 yearbook and the commencement program. Throughout the process they provided support, information, guidance and encouragement. The event was held at the Marina City Club in a lovely room. Food turned out fine and the DJ music arranged by TRC really brought back memories. Several of us brought mementoes after going through old boxes, closets, and scrapbooks to put on display. TRC staff manned the check-in table which allowed all of the guests to circulate and catch-up. The evening went so well that I volunteered to do the event again for the 60th in ten years. Since then I have gotten several emails requesting that we not wait for the 60th and do an event again in five years.
I can’t rave enough about the support provided by TRC staff. I really appreciated the assistance provided by the office staff. They were on top of everything, even giving helpful reminders and proddings. No question was ever silly or disregarded. I received frequent updates of information and ticket sales. My fears about “chairing” the event quickly disappeared and it turned out to be a lot of fun, only to be topped by the event itself.
Thanks to everyone at TRC!! It was a huge success!!!
Susie Hirsch Curtis- Palisades High, Class of 1966
The class of Poly High School 1966 just celebrated a super 50th reunion, with more than 200 classmates in attendance, and we thank The Reunion Committee (TRC) for all their help! They were absolutely instrumental in every detail from the moment our committee was formed in May 2015 to the night of the reunion - October 8, 2016!
We took advantage of the “Green Reunion” option offered by TRC which meant that we could offer a lower ticket price to our classmates. It meant a lot of work for us, as our committee had to follow up on a list of nearly 1,000 classmates. (TRC sent out a “Save the Date” postcard initially, and then provided us with a data sheet listing all classmates with the most current addresses.) Fortunately, we had a committee of 12, so we divided the list, and went to work, calling and writing classmates for the next year. Although it was a lot of work, we think that the personal contact might have been instrumental in convincing more classmates to come!
The best part of working with TRC is that they had a game plan: they offered hotel options in our preferred geographical area, they set up a Facebook account for our class, handled the menu planning, the photographer, the DJ, and they registered all the classmates arriving for the big party. Best of all, they handled all the money!.
Initially, we worked with Liz, but Shelli handled the day-to-day questions during the many months before the reunion. She was almost always available, but if she was busy she returned calls in a timely fashion. Katie was also very helpful with our Facebook account, which incidentally was a huge success, and probably contributed greatly to our big turnout. Thank you!
Diane - Poly ’66 Class Representative
To the Reunion Committee:
My thanks to your entire organization for the excellent and professional way you handled our (Morningside ’61) reunion—your 10th time or so managing it for us. Everyone was pleased and happy which is all we could ask for!!
Mike Bell – Morningside 1961
Once again The Reunion Committee did a terrific job managing our reunions. The 40-year reunion in 2006 was excellent and our 50th this weekend was even better. Please extend our thanks to everyone involved in making the whole thing come together so seamlessly, from locating and inviting classmates to the evening itself. The Marina City Club is an excellent location and the food was genuinely good and plentiful. Our DJ, Johnnie Gee, was responsive to requests and did a great job of capturing the flavor of our era. We look forward to working with you again.

I was contacted by Rick last year, about chairing the Granada Hills H.S. Class of 66 committee. I was reluctant at first. I informed Rick I had many things on my plate and wouldn't have time to attend to the many challenges of setting up a 50 year class reunion. After several emails and discussions, Rick convinced me I was the right person for the job. He assured me the Reunion Committee has been doing this for many years and have all the resources necessary to handle my concerns. I learned they
have this very efficient search engine saving time and energy. They handled contacting people who have changed names, residences, cities, states and countries.
I attended the class reunion (Class of 65) the year prior and was very impressed with the venue, food, music, bar and service.
The Reunion Community arranged with the hotel, to have a block of rooms at discounted rates for out of town travelers/guests.
Since I was now the chairperson, I was responsible for making certain decisions that could effect the outcome. I felt I was on a positive footing, through the guidance of the Reunion Committee. I believe in K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid). I decided to duplicate the class of 65 reunion. It had great reviews, everyone enjoyed themselves. I had such a good time, I didn't want to change anything! Why fix it if it isn't broken.
It was easy to keep in touch via phone or email with the Reunion Committee and their talented staff. They took care of most everything, making my job a no-brainer.
I had a fellow classmates to work with, which made my job even easier. I didn't feel I needed to check on many things because I trusted the Reunion Committee's
experience, Having attended several previous reunions over the years, I had a good feeling on how this one would turn out.
All things came together the night of our reunion like pieces of a puzzle. The Reunion Committee took great care making sure everything was on schedule.
The Reunion Committee personnel took care of staffing the reception and sign-in desk, the photographer, D.J. and financial arrangements.
From our cocktail hour, music (DJ Frank) dancing, photographs to dinner (excellent food), made this night a night to remember.
During the evening I received many compliments from fellow classmates and guests. That appreciation, shall be directed to the experienced staff of the Reunion Committee and the talented personnel of the Sheraton Hotel, Agoura Hills. Thank you very much for a job well done. I hope that all future class reunions will be handled by The Reunion Committee. My advice to anyone planning a class reunion, please talk to them first. I know the Reunion Committee can handle your very first 10 year reunion, or senior's, having there 50th. They'll take good care of you.

work with your on the 50th Reunion for
We have planned reunions in the past and they have been
exhausting and fully consuming for many months prior to the event.
Hiring you was the smartest thing we could have done. All of your
advance planning was amazing and your on-site team met every one of our
needs with grace and ease.
If you have potential groups who may be undecided in their
decision to hire you, feel free to pass along my email address. I
would be happy to give you a sterling recommendation.
Thank you, again, for making it a memorable evening for all of us.

I think that we have used your company for 3? of our reunions? I don't remember because
they all went off without a hitch! The Reunion Committee staff is professional, friendly and helpful.
Your firm took care of all the gory details, so I could concentrate on outreach - and you even set up our facebook page for me!
I just had to round up a few doorprizes and show up! The centerpieces were simple, yet beautiful and I thought the DJ did a
great job with no input from me!
Your company makes it especially easy for a class that has only one or two reps to pull off a first-class party!
(on a different note, I would like to discuss a different type of event for the 45th. We have thrown around the idea of a three-class (77-76-75)
BBQ - daytime event in one of the parks or clubhouses. Maybe we can chat about that, as the class turnout gets smaller and there is less
drinking and dancing as we get older!)
Thank you for doing such a great job!!!
Hart High Class of 1976
On the night of the reunion, the people that worked were very nice. Yael always kept me informed with the timing of events and what I should do next. They took many photos. Also, the memory board was a nice touch and the flowers on the tables matched our school colors. The DJ was great too and played all of the music we had suggested. I would recommend this company for your next reunion!
Renee - Fairfax High 1976
Everyone loved it. They all loved the food and we all had a great time. You guys did an excellent job. If I did it again would definitely have you guys work on it again. Great job well done.

“Working with The Reunion Committee was an exceptional experience. Their focus, organization, communications, expertise and staff helped make our reunion a tremendous success”Bruce D. Benton - GRANT 1976
I want to take this opportunity on behalf of the PVHS class of 66 to express our deep appreciation for
putting on a very memorable 50th high school reunion. In particular, to Liz and Rick, for your
unwavering support to me on a constant basis for over a year by validating found classmates and
updates on such a frequent basis. This helped me immeasurably in narrowing the field of classmates
which I could attempt to contact and convince to come to our reunion. The reunion started on
time, the greeters and photographers were well organized and were very responsive to the needs
of our classmates. The tables with our red napkin motif symbolic of our class colors was nicely
arranged and the overall meeting location was very nicely located in such a way as to be able
to move between the tables with ease. The DJ (Frank) was very congenial, attentive to any of
my suggestions, and played so many classic songs of our era. The photography was excellent and
I look forward to seeing the results in our memory album. All and all, a superb effort on the
part of the staff of reunioncommittee from start to finish. I recommend this company highly and I trust you will come away with the same positive memories we all did at the conclusion of the evening.
Larry Lace – Palos Verdes - class of 1966
I just want to let you know that you did a fantastic job on the reunion.
The flowers on the table were perfect, the food was great, and the DJ was terrific. My reunion was as good as I hoped it would be. Your company did a terrific job.
Thank you so much!

October 1, 2016, we had our 50th San Gabriel High School Reunion. The co-chair and I were a bit concerned because we did not begin working on this until May of 2016 and most people said we should have begun a year ahead of time. I have to say that everyone who attended said that it was the best reunion we have had and a big part of that was TRC’s handling of the event. When we had a question, they were right on it with an answer for us. The food was wonderful, they walked us through everything we needed to know and do since this was our first time organizing an event like this.
The night of the reunion TRC people were there to handle any and every problem and made things run very smooth for us. I highly recommend TRC if you are looking towards having a reunion.

Thank you Shelli and all of the reunion committee.
Please use the following as a testimonial:
The Reunion Committee did a great job for our 45th reunion. We started late so they were not available to work the evening, however they were very helpful in sending out invitations, giving us suggestions on how to increase our turnout, and keeping us up to date on the signups. They were always available by phone for questions and we could not have done it without them. Thanks to Shelli and Liz especially.
Merrilee & Willie - Santa Monica 1971 - Hub reunion
We recently had our 50th high school reunion and it was a total success. In fact, many attendees said it was the best reunion they had
ever been to. I give a tremendous amount of credit for this success to the fantastic staff at The Reunion Committee.
I have been part of the group that organized this reunion as well as several of our prior reunions. I have dealt with other reunion companies and none have come even close to providing the level of service, assistance, and support that we received from TRC. These people are simply the best! On many occasions I would email TRC with questions or information. The responses I got back were always quick and never failed to address my issues. TRC was also highly effective in locating many of our “missing” alumni and making sure that as many of the 987 people as possible in our class were contacted and advised of the reunion. TRC staff was at our reunion from start to finish and handled the check in, photos, DJ, and all the other details necessary to ensure that everything came off without a hitch. From my personal experience, other reunion companies are not this attentive or detail oriented.
I also want complement TRC on the manner in which they handled the booking of our reunion venue and the great relationship they have with the staff at the venue. TRC is definitely a professional operation and a class act.
I highly recommend TRC for any reunion.
“A huge thank you to The Reunion Committee for making our 50th high school reunion so amazing. It was a perfect night and everyone had a wonderful time. It was decided that we should not wait 10 years for the next one. It felt more like we were one big family celebrating a very special occasion, and it was.”

The North Hollywood High Class of '66 50th. Reunion Committee all agree that TRC did a wonderful job in searching for classmates, mailing invitations, Facebook posts, and arranging for the hotel accommodations and were quickly responsive to our questions and needs. All of their work saved us a great deal of effort and worry. Sona and the staff at the reception were great--so easy to work with, organized and unobtrusively involved. Frank, our DJ was very likeable, easy going and great to work with. We highly recommend TRC as a reunion organizer.
Thanks for everything.
Cheryl - North Hollywood 1966
I cannot imagine trying to arrange a reunion without the help of the Reunion Committee. With their assistance, arranging our reunion was actually very easy since the RC took care of all of the logistics related to the site visits, hotel arrangements, DJ, photographer, centerpieces, etc. We coordinated with them on enhancing the decorations they provided and it worked out nicely. The RC regularly updated us on ticket sales, questions were answered promptly and issues addressed efficiently. Tracking down classmates is a difficult task, even when using multiple social media sites, so the research capabilities of the RC came in very handy. One of the biggest benefits of using the RC is that they take on the financial risk associated with the event. No one on our committee was looking forward to using their own money to reserve a site or handling ticket sales and revenue collection. Having arranged conferences for work, I know how much effort it takes and the accounting procedures that need to be in place. It was worth every penny to have the RC handle these steps. I was very satisfied with the Reunion Committee and would use them again.

Thank you all for your hard work and patience with the planning and implementation of the Hollywood High School, Class of 1966, 50th Reunion! You all did a fantastic job and thanks to all your hard work and professionalism, our evening was a complete success. I cannot wait to plan more events, perhaps "Decade Reunions" with your team and the HHSAA in the near future!
Susan Silvestri _ Hollywood High 1966
First let me say thank you to Shelli, Liz, Katie, Rick and the rest of the staff that made this a huge success. TRC, the official Reunion Committee did a fantastic job in guiding and preparing us for the best reunion ever. As committee chair there is no way we’d attempt doing this on our own. If you want to have a great event, with excellent turnout then do your class a favor and use TRC. The feedback from our class was overwhelmingly positive, from the terrace rooms with patio, to the buffet food(excellent feedback by the way) to the TRC staff, and Sheraton staff we thank you for helping put on a great weekend event.

Dear Shelli and entire staff,
We had our 50th Reunion this past April 2, 2016 and I must say it was an amazing event. Dealing with the staff was a pleasure. Your company is very professional and was a lot of fun to work with. I have received many letters from classmates raving about how much they enjoyed the whole event. The guys were on board with compliments and very vocal on how glad they were that they had come to the reunion. I’d expected the gals to send in notes on this and was pleasantly surprised when the letters came in from the men. A large number of people would like to repeat this again in five years!! They don’t want to wait another ten to have the next one. I agree with this too :) Our D.J. was great too!! We may be 68 but we love to dance!! Fun was had by all and I and my committee of six want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for coordinating an awesome evening for us.
I would highly recommend TRC to anyone who is interested in having a fantastic, memorable event.
Thank you so much for all that you did for us!

We wanted to thank each of you and your staff for your hard work and cooperation in the planning and fruition of our 50 Year Class Reunion. Everyone was pleasant and helpful and a pleasure to work with. Sona, we especially appreciate your accommodating us with the room set up for the Reunion and for overseeing the evening. We can't wait to see all the snapshots that you and your staff so diligently took. The evening went well and everyone had a good time. In fact, many of our friends requested that we do the next reunion in 5 years instead of 10. Given our ages (67-68), we think that is a good idea. Would you be able to do a 55 Year Reunion for us?
We look forward to working with all of you again in the future.

Your professional staff greeted us as we entered the banquet room. They were organized and ready to go. It was a class act from beginning to end. Your guidance throughout the evening helped to insure a successful reunion.
Several guests told me they had second thoughts about a 40th, but were very glad they came. They said they immediately felt at ease, ready to greet high school friends and acquaintances because the ambiance of the event was so welcoming.
The final room setup was just right for us.

From our first contact, through the entire planning time, and through the reunion party itself, the Reunion Committee, Inc was terrific. You were all very professional, informative, and helpful with everything at every step of the way.
At the reunion itself, you let things happen naturally and helped us so well by guiding us through the announcements, introductions, and recognition of class members and always stayed in the background. In short, it was a great experience and I'd recommend your group to anyone.
Thanks again and let's definitely do it next time!”
“The reunion on Saturday was wonderful! The people you had staffing the event were amazing. The D.J. was great. And all the details were perfect - centerpieces, name tags, memory board, photographer.

Rick was absolutely terrific and "rolled with us" as we envisioned the set up and the program. I think that your staff enjoyed working with our committee Saturday. Probably surprised that there were so many volunteers and people in charge of various segments. We are very well known for our organization skils, creativity, and hospitality.
