20 Years: Re-Cap and Guest List

146 guests registered for the reunion, held on Saturday, August 13th in Haynes’ Hall at McMenamin’s Anderson School in Bothell. 139 attended. 23 attendees purchased VIP tickets or donated funds to enable participation for everyone. 10 attendees’ tickets were sponsored.

On Friday night, 65 people went to the Shanghai Room in Greenwood for drinks and karaoke.

Nine classmates and a handful of kiddos attended Sunday’s picnic at Bothell Landing.

Classmates came from far and wide — Nairobi, London (two classmates and one partner!), Atlanta, Massachusetts, Washington D.C., St. Louis, San Antonio, Scottsdale, Phoenix, Long Beach, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland,  Montana, Spokane, Corvalis, Portland, and Yakima.

We missed our friend, Scott Ellis, who is no longer with us.

All4Doras, a boy band tribute group, surprised guests with a performance of The Right Stuff by New Kids on the Block and Motown Philly by Boys II Men. Other surprises included a selfie photo booth, Cap-Sac visors for our VIPs, and commemorative koozies for everyone, with a choice of cheap warm beer (sorry, Anderson School!) or sparkling water. Unplanned surprises included weather in the high 80s, a lively/terrifying round of musical chairs,  and lots and lots of added security staff (sorry, Anderson School!).

Four classmates received awards: Katie Toop, who traveled the farthest, from Nairobi, Kenya; our “Rolling Stone,” Clara (Jackman Riggle), who has lived in 15-20 different cities since graduation; Kyla (Gardner) Hopkins, who has the most children (Five!); and Lara (Hollingworth) Dean, who was most recently married, on July 30, just two weeks before the reunion.

The reunion was chaired by Jessica Aceti, Clacy Albert, Nate Bochsler, Melissa (Bloss) Hunter, Simone Jackson, Kirsi Longly Nuchims, Ritee (Parikh) Sponsler, Melinda (Ellsworth) Smith.

The event cost around $10,300 to produce, which was funded by ticket sales. Tickets ranged in price from $30-$125, and most tickets sold for $75-90. The actual cost per attendee was around $74. $65 early bird tickets were available for the first five months of sales.
