Open House at MPHS from noon - 4 p.m.  Walk the hallowed halls of your Alma Mater.  Bring your lunch money for a "Taste of the Old Neighborhood" and greet your favorite purveyors. Join in an 'all classes' Assembly in Blackwelder Hall for tributes, In-Memoriam, music, and class pictures. Division room meeting for your individual class year.  Note the spectacular silent auction items up for bid.  

CANTEEN formal dinner at 115 Bourbon Street and dance to the hits of the 60's and 70's.  A photo booth.  Our purveyors on hand for that last "Taste of the Old Neighborhood' Silent Auction continues with winners announced.  

                            TO DO:

Start gathering all your pics, slides, home movies, from back in the day.  IF you can digitize them, all the better.  We have an online DROPBOX you'll be able to  submit your pics to be included in the audio/visual reels to be shown on large screen over the two day event.  Pull all your props and mementos, time to dig into your memory boxes and attic trunks.  

We have gotten special room rates from area hotels and those will fill up fast, so, if you are coming from out of town, you'll need to book your room as these are going fast and first come / first served.


When we share our skill sets and talents, the load is lifted. We are drawing from a large talent pool and in the age of technology we are living in, many volunteers are living out of state, we invite you to join us.  

    Send your inquiries and contact information to:


Any persons who have served on PAST reunion committees from ALL CLASSES, please share your contact information with us.  The success of any reunion is, in large part, a measure of the number of people we can get the word out to who will come.
