Annual Alumni Event
The Louisiana Alumni and Friends Association planning committee set the schedule for this year’s events at its March meeting after confirming the Chamber of Commerce is planning to hold Colorfest the third weekend of October. On Saturday, October 21, during Colorfest weekend, an all-school and all-class reunion social / mixer will kick-off the evening’s events at the American Legion Hall located at 420 Kelly Lane. It will run from 5 p.m. till 6:30 p.m. and is open to anyone who attended school in Louisiana, their spouse/significant other and/or friends, and any friends of the local schools. The social / mixer is free with a cash bar available from the American Legion. This provides a great opportunity for alumni from one class to mingle and reminisce with those from other classes.
After the social / mixer, a dinner for only those with reservations will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the American Legion. The bountiful meal will be catered by Vicky Mitts Keely (‘78) and tickets are $25 per person. This dinner ticket will include admission to the dance which starts at 9 p.m. (see at right).
The dinner will again include recognition of this year’s special reunion classes (those with their graduation year ending in 3 or 8) in attendance. We are anticipating a big turnout. Since seating is limited, make your reservations today! Also, a very brief annual business meeting required by our by-laws will be held before dinner.
A bit later that evening at the American Legion Hall, there will be a dance with live music featuring the band Country Soul. This will run from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. with doors opening at 8:30 p.m. A $5/person cover charge will be required to enter for the dance (unless you attend the dinner earlier). During all events at the American Legion a cash bar will be available benefitting the Legion.
