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 Mater's, 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 ~

2013 ~ St. Al/St. Francis Alumni Banquet


  Click on program to enlarge.

  
The B.B. Club is really a beautiful place for an event such as a wedding reception, etc.  It is a historic building that dates back to 1915 and was originally the B'nai B'rith literary club (a sort of Jewish country club). There is even still a swimming pool in the basement!

  
Notice this dog across the street on the back of a motorcycle guarding and waiting for his master's return.  Don't see this everyday!

Wanda and Louis "Sonny" Logue's grandson graduated also with several awards that's posted below.  My congrats to them and I know they are so proud of their grandson, Forrest Taylor Logue.  

Terri Matherne with her husband who had a son to graduate, Tyler Joseph Matherne.  I used to work with Terri at the Vicksburg Convention Center after I retired from my government job and we were also neighbors.  I remember their two sons when they were little tykes!  My how time flies!  A beautiful couple and family.

Mary Martha Hilbun with her cousin, John Louis Gargaro.

Sandra Jabour and Father Patrick Curley of St. Michael Catholic Church.

A beautiful building where a lot of weddings/functions are held.

 
A ceiling full of lights!

Listening to the guest speakers (Class of 1963) Anna Marie Franco and H. Fielding Hossley.

Lovely arrangements of roses on each table.

Hopefully, with the next Alumni Banquet our Class of 1959 will get together for our 55th class reunion.  It's hard to believe I started this blog about 6 years ago for our 50th Class Reunion...now it will soon be 55 years.  I hope we can all get together again.  It will be wonderful to see everyone.  It's sad to say that we have lost two of our classmates last year since we have met.  They were high school sweethearts, Roy and Katherine Turcotte.  May they both rest in peace!
