Event description

Description

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you are a graduate of Norristown Area High School’s Class of 2009. And, if you are, first and foremost, congratulations on being a part of one of the most diverse and successful classes in NAHS’s history. Professional athletes, published authors, accomplished musicians and performers, political staff & activists, credited in television and film, educators and health care providers... mid-shift managers… parents! Then again, some of y’all were parents before graduations. Haha.

But we are staring down TEN years of growth, and loss, and change. And for everything we’ll celebrate that we’ve become -this is the one night when we can revel in what was, and finally laugh about it. Maybe it’s the night to tell that person you had feelings for, THEY missed out. What if for one night we were 18 again, and we had another shot at an enduring impression?

Well… too bad! Because we’re adults now. And if we were 18, we couldn’t drink. For anyone laughing at “18,” don’t get me started on who was underage drinking -I’m sure we all remember... I’m looking at the band and theater kids. And that’s what it might take to make it through a few hours with THAT person in your life again.

So it’s our reunion, and we should live it up, if for only ONE NIGHT. So let us make it one worth remembering.

I propose a simple plan -fairly priced, and still setting the NEW standard for reunions.

I run a business out of a hella dope venue just south of Temple University’s campus -accessible by public transportation, and near enough to Norristown to not be a cumbersome trip. This venue, Warehouse on Watts (wowphilly.com) will serve as party central. Two floors, and with a capacity exceeding 1000 people, there’s plenty of room. Philadelphia’s best DJs have been booking the place and hosting parties that go well into the morning, moving wall to wall. With TWO 30ft bars, gendered & gender-neutral bathrooms, and ample space accommodating LIVE performances, the options are many for entertainment. With hours to kill, we could easily tuck in a few tracks from some of y’alls mixtape (it may be the only time we ever listen to it) Haha.

But that would seem insufficient. We could do more, and better -and so we shall. Included in your ticket cost would be access to an EXCLUSIVE carnival, provided by a partnership between Philly Move/The Bad Activist & Houghton Enterprises. For anyone unfamiliar, Houghton Enterprises is the same company that hosts that BOMB St Paul’s carnival that we all flocked to every year. Houghton Enterprises has agreed to partner with Philly Move/The Bad Activist and will donate a portion of their earnings, investing in programs for the area youth. More information on Philly Move/The Bad Activists youth & community work available upon request. So not only does your reunion celebrate your life since high school -BUT it also benefits good work, a… party with a purpose, as it were.

We have karaoke, and photobooths available. Food trucks are a low cost option, and free (while supplies last) WITH YOUR TICKET PURCHASE. Door prizes, and mock awards, a Reunion King & Queen (or Them & Them, however voting works out).

All of this is feasible, within a reasonable budget, and guaranteed to be remembered.

The Carnival will be within walking distance.

Red Bull is offering some drink specials, and the venue will provide the rest (please tip your bartenders -even though the drinks are free).

I would be happy to sit down with anyone and talk more about this. Let’s enjoy being together, even if for one more night.
