Class Reunion Activities
It is as important as ever to recognize and support our active military forces and veterans for their service to our county. Those of us who haven’t served in the military can only appreciate the efforts our service men and women constantly make, especially those in dangerous combat situations.
We may not think about the perils and risks our military service men and women go through in locations around the world. Hence, we can help them feel appreciated when they return home especially when many vets have difficulty trying to assimilate back into society. As you look for class reunion ideas and activities, consider adding a short ceremony at your next reunion to honor and thank your alumni military veterans.Read more...
Movie Reprises We Love to See
In following our topic of entertainment reunions, we decided to explore movie series or sequels that have been successful. The obvious reason filmmakers want to make sequels is to mimic the success of the original. In helping insure its success, the original actors might be cast in the sequel. As audiences, we identify the actors with their characters and enjoy seeing the actor age in the roles they reprise. Here are some profitable movie series we considered for this article.
Rocky (1976 - 2006). There have been 6 movies in the Rocky Balboa series and number seven may be in the works. Sylvester Stallone wrote and starred in all 6. Talia Shire, Burgess Meredith, Burt Young, Carl Weathers all appeared in the original and its sequels. The films are about a down and out boxer who has his triumphs and falls in the boxing arenas, at one point becoming the Heavy Weight Champion of the World. In an interview with a German TV station Stallone was quoted saying that, “The next movie would likely be about getting older rather than boxing.”
