            55th Class Reunion, Coming April, 2019

Here are the details for our 55th reunion.  Please help us by committing early; a solid headcount is so very important, both for the caterer and for us. Our costs to buy and prepare food and to provide beverages are dependent on how many we can expect.


The cost of the combined Friday night cocktail party and Saturday BBQ will be $45 per person if paid before March 15, 2019 and $50 per person thereafter.  We won’t be selling separate tickets to these events.  The Sunday brunch is a separate activity excluded from the cost of the cocktail party and BBQ.  The cost of the brunch will be $32; see details below. Make all checks payable to Chip DeLanzac, 1525 Cherokee Ave, Metairie, LA 70005

Saturday April 6, 2019.

Meet at the old John McDonogh High School on Esplanade at 10:00 am for a tour of the campus.  Pat Gebbia is coordinating. She will need a headcount, so let us know with your party/BBQ payment if you intend to participate in the tour (include spouse, if attending).


Saturday April 6, 2019, following the school tour.

A picnic, rain or shine, at Chip’s home, 1525 Cherokee Ave, Metairie, LA.  We will have roast beef sandwiches, BBQ beans, and salad. We will also provide soft drinks, wine, beer, and bottled water. We are asking locals to bring picnic chairs in case they are needed; we have sufficient chairs for out-of-towners.  The grounds are quite adequate for the anticipated large turnout and parking should not be an issue.
