This evening at 6:00 we will be kicking off our 50th class reunion at The Ware House which is located in the middle of historic downtown Vicksburg (catty-cornered from The Valley at 1412 Washington Street). It comprises of five buildings built in the mid 1800's and each one has been meticulously refurbished. There are two bars on the premises...The Lounge and The Sports Bar & Grill.
Tomorrow our picnic will start at 11:00 at the Knight of Columbus Home. At 5:30 we will have Mass at St. Michael's Catholic Church and I have been chosen to be one of the gift bearers. After Mass we will all assemble in the Parish Hall for cocktails and the alumni banquet will start at 7:30. The class of 2009 and our class (1959) will be recognized. The guest speaker will be our own class member, Dr. Edward "Ed" Habert of Kirkwood, MO and of Destin, FL. We have approximately 27 classmates coming with their spouses and extended family members. There were 20 girls from Saint Francis Xavier Academy and 19 boys from St. Aloysius...three from each class are deceased. We are all looking forward to a great time and making more wonderful memories.
