A fellow classmate is putting together a simple class reunion. It’s at a recreational area outside of our hometown. The site has been paid for by the class and it’s a pot luck. It’s a large class, but there’s only 17 going and 20 interested so far (event is at the end of the month). Each person has to pay $10 for parking and the planner is bringing 1 yard game anyone can play. Other than that it’s enjoy other’s company/hiking or walking the beautiful recreational site.
A big hobby of mine is card making. I plan to make the planner a nice card (takes me2-2.5 hrs to make a special card for occasions like this.)
Bees, is it necessary for me to bring a gift for the planner on top of the card? Thanks in advance!

No, I don’t think you need to buy a gift for someone who chose to plan a class reunion.

I don’t think gifts are necessary for a class reunion…it’s not at her home or something. Even a card doesn’t seem necessary, but that’s a very nice gesture regardless 🙂
Since it’s a potluck, everyone is bringing a contribution, which is sort of a “gift” in my opinion…at least in this case.

greeneyedamber : Nope. Why would it be necessary?

It’s a potluck in a public area, it doesn’t really require a ‘host’ gift.

I know it was a silly question. It’s my 1st reunion I’ve been to and I’d assume ppl don’t typically gift to the planner-the situation is a bit different and without going into too much detail this planner has planned something last minute so the ppl who have plane tickets and accommodations, etc have an event to go to. Just wanted to show my gratitude with a nice card, but also wanted to ask about a “hostess” gift. Figured bringing a dish and helping towards the site was good enough. Thanks for answering my silly question, bees ☺

Neither the card nor a gift are necessary.
