September 25, 2009 Update

Dear Pelicans,

Please continue to inform Pelicans about the lunch on Oct. 17th and  check your emails periodically between now and Oct. 17th so you do not miss any information regarding the lunch at Prejean’s Restaurant.

We are blessed with the response and are grateful to the wonderful variety of backgrounds, ages, geographical locations, etc.

The people below are planning to attend and look forward to more joining us. Even though over 60 people are on the list, a contingency plan is in place to accommodate more Pelicans.  Please email Ed  ASAP    at  to add you and guests to the list if you wish to attend.  The list below guarantees that a enjoyable afternoon will be had by all.  We look forward to seeing everyone.  Thanks. Peace, Ed

Unless things change, Everette “Hayes” Barman (Georgia) and Lydia Pearce Soroosch are in the running for traveling the greatest distance to attend.

Attendees will be lead by EHS graduates: Stebo Pearce (’44), Nettie Johnson Jans (’45), Bert St. Romain (’46), Ruth Dugas Albritton (’47), Nannie Lee Haydel & Jerry Spencer (’48).

Hopefully, everyone attending will be in the Cypress Room of the restaurant by noon, as plans are to begin taking drink orders shortly thereafter and continue until all meal orders are taken, consumed and paid for, etc. Interactions of a table and total group will follow. The speakers who will briefly address the entire group are on the above list. Photo opportunities and other documentation of the event will be incorporated as the afternoon progresses.

If things go as anticipated, the event should end shortly before 3:00, and we will vacate the Cypress Room – (so it can be prepared for another booking).

Note: Handicapped access to Prejean’s Restaurant is on the left side as you face the front of the building.
