Class Rosters for the 1970s and 1980s are being collected.  Please email Ed if you attended EES during the 1970 – 1988 years or if you know the names of students who attended. 


Evergreen Board of Aldermen Meeting:


On Monday, Jan. 12, Ed attended the Evergreen Government Meeting to share information about www.EvergreenLa.org and to seek their support and promotion of the website.  He was joined by Civic League Members Annabelle Jeansonne Blanchard, Nettie Jans, and Doris Ortolano and Volunteer Firemen William Rodgers and Mike Tanner. More news will come later on the specific results of those actions, but the three groups voiced their support of www.EvergreenLa.org

Hopes are that the website can become instrumental in promoting the activities of the town government and those of its citizens.


A special appreciation is extended to those ladies who add a special touch of hospitality and Christian charity after funerals at the Little Flower Church Cemetery. Their efforts provide food and drink, along with the wonderful environment of the church hall. Their warm hospitality was felt and acknowledged by all who attended the funeral of Bill Albritton on Thursday, Jan. 15. 

Thank you.
