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.

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).

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,

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.
