It all really started – A little more than a year ago
Jim Shaw and Charlie Dauphin – Were discussing the reunion show
Then I got involved – And it was time for things to be done
So we put our heads together – And decided to make it fun!!
This event is very special – After all, it’s been 40 years
So everyone must get notified – By reliable volunteers
We turned and took a look – Deciding none of us fit the bill
Individually we gave it some thought – And came up with the name, Jill!!
She seemed the perfect choice – And was more than happy to assist
So we divided up the duties – Each of us with a list
Who knew who and where – Were they living ten years ago
Each of us contributed – As our list began to grow!!
Now we all went home – And the emails began to fly
Jill, you’re doing a great job – “Thank you” came her reply
By the way, we voted you Chairman – Good luck dear friend
If there’s anything we can do – On us you can truly depend!!
At another level Jill knew the score – And just kept plugging away
Working alone in solitude – Throughout the long winter day
Lining up the restaurant – Emailing new information out
Screaming in frustration – Sometimes even cursing with a shout!!
The date of “The All Class Reunion” – Is normally the same each year
But some moron changed it – The communication channel wasn’t clear
No one bothered to tell anyone – Or spread the word around
Jill expressed her frustration – Her emails were quite profound!!
I won’t even quote her – But she knew she had my support
I told her it would all work out – It gave her much comfort
And low and behold it did – We’ve made it to the end
And Jill, the boys were correct – On you, we could depend!!
So each and every one of us – Guilt laden that we are
And to show our appreciation – For Jill, our reunion Star
We’ve brought you some gifts – To honor the work you’ve done
And to thank you for the reunion – Don’t worry, we’ll take care of the 50th one!!
