Mt. Carmel's Classmates of 1955 lunched at Carabbas in Lafayette,
on Saturday, October 9, celebrating the 55th year since our high school graduation.


Brenda Akinson led us in Grace before Meal, a prayer that she composed for the occasion, thanking God for our friendships and remembering our four classmates, Virginia, Avis, Betty and June, who are no longer with us. Enjoying the lunch were Brenda Atkinson, Suzanne Bernard, Henrietta Boriskie, Loretta Carriere, Mary Domingue, Patsy Franques, Fern Krieg, Minette Langlinais, Cile Martin, Maugie Pastor and Doris Provost.

Following lunch, most of the group headed for Henrietta's home nearby for dessert and coffee, reminiscing and catching up on all the latest. The "girls" read an email sent by Mary Elizabeth Simolke, a note and photo from Halina Koziell, and saw photos of the Cathedral-Carmel campus brick we'd all donated. Many hugs were shared as we parted, saying how much enjoyed visiting with everyone, and that we look forward to celebrating our 60th  with our Cathedral guys, hopefully with everyone in the best of health.
