  1. Glynn Kohler has provided another news story from our past – click on Education, History of Education, scroll down and click on the title, “Evergreen Future Farmers of America Chapter Distinguishes Itself” dated Dec. 3, 1948
  2. The News Page contains the story, “The Original Boogie Kings Played for Cancer Benefit at L.J.’s Casino”. This story contains an active donation request for your consideration. The story includes two website addresses provided by Doug Ardoin with information on the Original Boogie Kings.

Yes, work is progressing on a report of the Evergreen Lunch held on Oct. 17. It will include a narrative section, video section, audio section and digital pictures…your patience on this one is appreciated.

Next Evergreen Reunion: Email your input PLEASE. Top suggestions thus far include the date Saturday, May 15, 2010 (if Little Flower Church Hall is available); Time: At least from 9am – 4pm to allow time for a variety of social settings and visiting. Provide lunch at the hall.(Point of reference:The 2008 Reunion was held on May 17th).

Email your reaction to this idea and/or provide other recommendations in the brain-storming period. Let us know what should be part of the reunion. Once more input for a date, time, location, is received, a local committee will be established.  Please email me if you would like to serve on the committee (no matter where you reside).  Many good ideas for the next reunion have been received and it would be good to see which of these are feasible.

Is there something you need to send for posting on the website?  Family Connections, Memories, Military, Names of Classmates (70s & 80s), News, Other.  Please email at your earliest convenience.

Thanks to each of you who continue to send information on a recurring basis. It is appreciated…you make the website what it is.

Peace, Ed Dugas
