#ForeverFalcons

FIND THE FALCONS!

We are kicking off our campaign to FIND THE FALCONS! We want to connect or reconnect with our West Catholic alumni as we get ready to celebrate our 60th graduating class. We encourage you to update your contact information so we can keep you informed about all the exciting things happening at West Catholic. Be sure to spread the word and help us FIND THE FALCONS!

Class Reunions

Reconnect and reminisce! Class reunions are more than just gatherings; they’re a celebration of shared memories and the journey our alumni have taken since graduation. Our upcoming reunions are listed here. Be sure to mark your calendars and join your class for an unforgettable celebration!

PLANNING A CLASS REUNION?

Need help planning a class reunion? You’ll find a list of suggestions below to help you get started. Alumni Relations at West Catholic can also offer assistance in many ways.

1. Choose someone to plan the reunion (it does not have to be an officer) and form your committee for planning the event(s). Some classes have picnics, golf outings, casual mixers or formal dinners. Choose a style that you think will work best for your class.

2. Contact Alumni Relations for a spreadsheet of your class list and mailing labels. (Note: The addresses provided are constantly changing).

3. Choose a date and location for the reunion.

4. Build a Facebook fan page or group. Keep your classmates informed of reunion plans by posting updates on your Facebook page. Engage them by asking questions such as “Who was your favorite teacher?” or “What is your best WC memory?” Also, follow the official WC page with your class page to create more traffic!

5. Let us help you get the word out! We will post all of the important information on our website and publish it in an issue of the Westword, our alumni magazine.

6. Make an email distribution list using the addresses from the spreadsheet, adding any from your own address book or those accumulated from classmates. You may want to start a class email address so that there is one consistent contact address for coordinating your planning.

7. You may want to send a Save the Date mailing to test addresses as well as find out new contact information.

8. Finalize the details. Decide on a price that will include the food, postage, decorations, entertainment and a cushion amount for startup of your next reunion. Send out an invitation with the price and response information.

9. A representative from WC will come to your reunion to give your class a brief update on the “State the School.”

After the reunion, please send your updated classmate contact information to Megan Eversman at m[email protected] so that the master alumni database can be updated. Please send email addresses and postal addresses if possible.

Many classes have money saved in a Catholic Secondary Schools Student Services account. Alumni Relations can tell you if your class has any money in an account. If your class does not have money available, we can loan you $100 to get started and would need to be paid back at the time of your reunion.

If you need addresses, email addresses or help with a Facebook page, give us a call – we can help! Contact Megan Eversman at [email protected] or (616) 233-5969
