WHAT KIND OF EVENTS
DOES THE SVAG HAVE?

We currently try to have two or three Events each year. Once during the Spring (April or May), where we will try for a more family oriented Event such as a Picnic, and once during the fall (October) where it will be more of a night time party Event for all of our Alumni and Guest. We also like to try and have a Get-Together in Las Vegas each year in the month of February. The weather is great at that time and prices are at their lowest. We are however, always open to new idea and suggestions from our members when
it comes to different types of Venues. We are all getting older each day, and there is no reason why we shouldn't be together to sing, dance and enjoy the company of old friends once again.

DOES THE SVAG SUPPORT
ALL SCHOOL & CLASS REUNIONS?


YES! The Simi Valley Alumni Group
(SVAG) is made up of all graduating classes from Royal, Apollo and Simi High Schools. We will help promote your Class Reunion and even help you organize one as well in conjunction with one of our Events. There is NO CHARGE for this service. Basically, we have taken the Paid Reunion Companies out of the equation and are now re-defining your standard high school reunion. That's because we are all fellow Alumni from Simi Valley, CA and strive to bring all of our classes together again. All we ask is that you help us by contributing your time and effort when it comes to putting your Class Reunion together.
   
HOW CAN I HELP
SUPPORT THE SVAG?


Membership! We need all Alumni to help spread the word about The SVAG. The more members we have, the bigger and better our Events will be. Each member is asked to contact other Alumni and have them sign up and become a member as well.

We also ask that members help us by contributing their skills and talents to our group such as musical, business, advertising, artistic and organizational. We are a Non-Profit Group, and all we ask is that Members help by donating their free time and energy if possible.
                                                      
HOW DID THE SVAG BEGIN?
In early 2007, a few of us, four to be exact, made contact again after not seeing each other for 35 years. We all agreed that we wanted to bring all of our classmates and friends together again.  But our friends were not just Royal High School Alumni, but Apollo and Simi High as well. So we decided to try and contact as many old friends as possible and meet for an Unofficial Class Reunion in September 2007.
Our first Get-Together consisted of just seven (7) friends and classmates.  Today (2012), we have grown to just over 2000 members. To verify our numbers please check out our Photo Page and Members List here and on Facebook.

OUR CANCELLATION POLICY
(AND WHY WE HAVE ONE)
I guess we should start off by saying WHY we have a Cancellation Policy.

As many of you already know there is No Profit in putting these Get-Togethers, Events and Reunions on. We do these solely to bring old Friends and Class Mates from Simi Valley California together again. Honestly, that's the only reason!!!

To arrange these Gathering we try to get the best deals we can from Hotels, Restaurants, Banquet Rooms, Night Clubs, and any other business that will  benefit our fellow Alumni during one of our Events.

We are asked point blank in the beginning by these businesses what
kind of crowd (numbers) will be coming
to their establishment.  Of course, Larger numbers mean better discounts for all of us. For example, the more hotel rooms we book, the cheaper the room price is for all of us.


When we give these Businesses a head count of  our fellow Alumni who will be attending their establishment, they in return give us a much lower rate than the general public would receive.  At that point, we begin to add names to our Guest List, Make Name Tags, and sometimes hire people to help us. This all takes time, effort and money to accomplish. Sometimes we will charge our Alumni and Guest a $5.00 cover charge to help us out with the expenses.  That's not bad for an evening out.

Now we totally understand when someone needs to contact us and Cancel, we have no problems with that. We just remove your name from the list and let the Establishment know that our Guest List will be lower than expected. This is extremely important when a Restaurant needs to provide adequate  staffing to serve us.

The problem occurs when You Don't call and cancel with us and just not show up. Now our numbers are off, we've wasted time and expensive name tags and most establishments won't give us a break the next time we want to visit.  ALL WE ASK is for you to contact us and Cancel if you can not keep your reservation. We don't feel that is too much to ask.

As far as our Policy goes, If an Alumni or Guest makes a reservation with us and is a NO SHOW  three times in a row (without contacting us to cancel), then we will not add them to our Guest List on all Future Events.  Please, just be courteous and let us know if you can't make it.
