3. Modified Program on May 17

The invocation by Rev. Bobby Tanner was followed by the Pledge of Allegiance led by Mike Tanner.  ER Committee introductions and recognitions of various attendees followed. The highlight of the afternoon was when Georgie asked attendees to reminisce about their days in Evergreen.  WOW! - How interesting!  Ed presented Dub with a 1990 ER cap (compliments of Ryan Rabalais) in recognition of his tape of the 1983 Male Beauty Contest and the 1983 ER. Recognitions were also extended to Dale Descant (ER Website), Ryan Rabalais(CDs and Slide Show), and Mike Tanner(Photographer).  Gov. Jindal's proclamation declaring May 17 "Wear Green Day in Louisiana" was announced and distributed. Father Dan Corkery provided the benediction and then "May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You" and "God Bless America" was sung by all with Jeanette Barron sErving as choral director.  There was a moment of silence for those who are no longer with us and the program ended with Mike presenting Kay Tanner with a birthday cake - a surprise which was shared with guests.
