Crowley High School Classes of ’58 and ’59 gather
CROWLEY - The Crowley High School Classes of 1958 and 1959 held a reunion at the Town Club in Crowley on July 27. It was the 55th reunion for the Class of 1958 and the 54th for the Class of 1959.
The reunion began with a display of antique cars brought by Michelle and Michael Libby. Class members then had time for visiting and taking photographs.
A short program was given by several members from both classes.
Carl Brazell was the master of ceremonies and thanked the 115 people who attended. He introduced the following people, who also shared a part in the program: Sara Short Bertrand, Betty Vallot Mitchell, Charlotte Hamic Spell, Bill Campbell and Rev. Charles Freeland. Other class members, including Russell Meche, Shelby Arnaud, Bonnie Arnaud Broussard, Joy Lindsey Chaddick, Betty Vallot Mitchell, Charlotte Hamic Spell, Carl Brazell and Suzanne Firmin Edwards, led the group in the singing of the Alma Mater.
A time of silence was held in remembrance of the 54 classmates who are now deceased.
Following a blessing, the classmates then enjoyed a delicious meal together.
Pete Trahan and Gail Broussard of the Remember When Singers entertained the class members with songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Some of the class members, all of whom are over 70, showed off their talent by dancing to the music.
The class of 1958 has a formal reunion every five years and invites the class of 1959. In the interim years, each class holds an individual reunion.
