Each milestone Reunion is a unique experience, where we see the alumnae/i community gather every five years as they journey through life. This year’s Reunion, however, was truly memorable as it was the very first gathering that, due to the coronavirus pandemic, was held exclusively online.
This “PREunion” was held on Saturday, June 6 and served as a “placeholder” for an in-person Reunion (reschedule date TBD). Over 300 alums joined members of the HCHSAA Board of Directors from their homes to mark the passage of time. Streamed through Facebook Live, and featuring a livecast via Zoom, alumnae/i from many milestone classes had the opportunity to share what HCHS meant to them through video presentations.
One of the highlights of the event was having a virtual performance by the high school’s Senior Strings ensemble, who performed a movement of Vivaldi’s Concerto for Strings in D Major, compiled by Adam C. ’21. PREunion was followed by the Annual Meeting of Members, also streamed live on Facebook for the first time.
Eniko Horvath, the HCHSAA’s Events, Grants, and Development Manager, played a major role in organizing the PREunion. In case you missed the event, PREunion proceedings are available for view on our YouTube channel. See the video.
