The 1955 class of Cathedral Carmel held a pretty impressive reunion of its own. Both the boys and girls classes got together for a weekend of golf, food and dancing. The group calls itself a relic of Catholic education, but these relics still know how to party. A golf match at Vieux Chenes kicked off the weekend, followed by a party at Donald and Essie Deshotels' home. The group attended Mass at St. John Cathedral Saturday morning, then the women caught up at a house party thrown by Henrietta Bertrand, while the men went for burgers at their old hangout, Judice Inn. The fun culminated with a dinner dance at the Petroleum Club, which recognized Doris Landry and Charles Prevost for celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and O.P. Ditch for helping keep the group connected through its Web site, CathedralCarmel55.org. Party Girl's so glad to see local classmates reuniting. Old friends are important, y'all!
Local builders and agents also reunited to talk shop and eat some fried fish at River Oaks. The Van Eaton & Romero Builders' Fish Fry brought together about 250 people and packed the reception hall. Of course the fried fish hit the spot. Judy Hagood, Nancy Castette and Lisa Shivers discussed upcoming projects, while Carole and Jack Horn visited with builders Jules and Kathy Lacour. Thanks for including Party Girl in your events, guys! And don't forget about me through the rest of the summer.
