Class of 1959

We, the Class of 1959, celebrated our 50th class reunion on April 24 and 25, 2009. This blog is about sharing memories of our class reunions and a long ago life at our Alma Maters, S.F.X.A. and S.A.H.S. Good memories of days gone by but not forgotten! A gift to my classmates. ~Marian Love Phillips ~

SFXA/SAHS 55th Class Reunion

Our SFXA/SAHS 55th Class Reunion was held at the B'nai B''rith Literary Association, (B.B. Club) on Friday, April 11, 2014, honoring the Class of 1964 and the Class of 2014.  It was disappointing that none of our SAHS (Class of 1959) classmates were able to attend the banquet.

Prayers Needed For Classmate

Please continue to keep our classmate Phillip Dorion in your prayers and his family as well. He will be starting chemo on April 10th.

Philippians 2:9-10 "Therefore God has exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above  every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the Glory of God the Father."

Reunion - Class of 1959

Hi Class of 1959:

At our 50-year reunion, we had discussed getting together every 5 years instead of waiting for 10.  Some of our classmates are planning to be in Vicksburg the weekend of the annual Alumni Banquet, which will be held on Friday night, April 11, this year.   The class of 1959 would like to invite all our classmates to a Brunch at the home of Myrtle and Bobby Alvarado on Saturday, April 12, 2014, at 12 noon.  While we are visiting on Saturday morning, we can discuss any further “get-togethers,” for our classmates and spouses and members of other classes from St. Aloysius and St. Francis who would like to join us.

The address for the Brunch is:  2125 Cherry Street, Vicksburg, MS

Please contact Sue Fowler at (601) 429-5489 (preferred) or (601) 529-0825 (cell); or you may e-mail if you plan to attend.

Hope to see you in April!
