Mrs. Carrie Thibodeaux Voinche represented the class of 1941. Mr. and Mrs. Doucet were also celebrating their 63rd wedding anniversary on this date.

Mr. McBride as well as many of the former students of St. Michael took time to reminisce about their past experiences of their school days and the importance of having the nuns of the Most Holy Sacrament as their teachers. Mentioned were Sr. Bridget, Sr. Adelith, Sr. Angelina, Sr. Teresita and as well as many others.
