Every year for the reunion, we decide what foods we are going to have, and then it is easy to let everyone know what to bring. We have a list with all the e-mail addresses. It makes it so much easier liaising with everyone. We also opened a Facebook Reunion page, where we can post pictures of the events.

Editor's Note: According to Wikipedia "A lapa is a structure that is popular in South Africa. It usually consists of a thatched roof supported by wooden poles. Lapas are commonly used as semi-open entertainment areas."

I like your idea, Erika. Here in the USA, most parks rent shelter houses (like lapas). That's what my family did when we had our first reunion in 10 years. My sister-in-law arranged everything with some help from one of my sisters. I liked being able to let them know via Facebook that we were coming. I don't know how to do it, but I know from this experience that it's possible to create a private group and event. Then people without invitations can't join.
