St. Michael Class of 1966 holds 50-year reunion
Members of the St. Michael High School Class of 1966 held their 50-year reunion last weekend at The Ballroom of Crowley.
Over 50 guests were in attendance at the event, with classmates traveling from California, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, New York, Texas and various points throughout Louisiana to be present for the milestone event.
The group gathered on Saturday, Nov. 5, and enjoyed a noon meal catered by Fezzo’s of Crowley.
The guest tables were topped with arrangements of gold flowers in blue vases that matched the school’s colors, and a large blue and gold banner welcomed guests to the reunion. There was also a variety of old high school photographs and memorabilia available for the guests to use to spur their recollections as they listened to music from the 1960s.
Seven members of the class who served in the military were recognized for their service: Cliff Adams, U.S. Marine Corps, 1966-1970; Mike Cart, U.S. Navy, 1967-1971; Carl Matte, La. National Guard, 1970-1976; the late Larry Signorelli, U.S. Army; John Sonnier, U.S. Army Reserve, 1971-1995; R.J. Thibodeaux, U.S. Navy; and Ricky Trahan, U.S. Marine Corps, 1968-1969.
