NEW TIME, OLD PLACE FOR COLLATING
You know you should have been there. At the Christmas Social, of course.
We had a wonderful time and thought of you every minute. OK, maybe not
every minute, but we did pray for those who couldn’t be there, for whatever
reason. The food was exquisite. I don’t like to single any one dish out,
but we had at least one prize-winning recipe. The desserts were especially
tempting. Maybe it was best you weren’t there. You might have hurt yourself.
But we missed you. Really we did. We had so much we had to take some of
it home. And the door prizes made it around twice, so that everyone received
two gifts, and some more than two. Not much business went on, however.
DEATH: Our sympathies go to charter member Ruth EXPOSITO, who lost her sister last month. Elsie LABIT LANDRY NEEL died 16 December 2003. A resident of Kokomo, Mississippi, she was the beloved wife of Bob NEEL, and former wife of the late Allen LANDRY, Jr. Mother of Nancy May, Timothy, Allen III, Gregory Sr., Paul and Kelly LANDRY and the late Leon LANDRY. Stepmother of Robert and Earl NEEL. Daughter of the late Leon LABIT and Loyola BLANCHARD. Sister of Ruth EXPOSITO, Perry, Larry, and Lindsey LABIT. Also survived by 7 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
CORMIER NOTICE: I hate being the bearer of bad news, but the
CORMIER CMA 2004 Reunion is cancelled. The best way to explain this is
as it was explained to me, therefore I quote:
This was sent on Sunday 4 January 2004 as an email with the subject:
“Cormier Reunion Cancellation.” Please pass this information on to anyone
who is planning to attend in August of this year.
MEMBERSHIP: We invite you to continue your membership through
the next membership year. That is, through the March meeting of 2005. Check
the address label at the top of this newsletter. If it has EX2005,
you are in good shape, and you won’t have to worry just yet. Those who
have to be concerned are those who have EX2004 because that means that
their membership is only going to last until February of 2004, and that
is just next month. We are happy to report that the cost of membership
is the same as last year: $25.00 for individuals, $30.00 for families,
$30.00 for a contributing membership and $22.00 for libraries. Send it
right away and that will be one less nagging worry in your crowded mind.
But please send your check to our new address.
CONFEDERATE HEROES: Come relive the stories and lives of the Confederate heroes from Brusly through the book titled Tirailleurs (pronounced TEE-ray-your). The author, Dr. Thomas H. RICHEY will discuss his book on Sunday, 1 February 2004, at Brusly Town Hall. For directions call 225-749-2909. By the way, the complete title is Tirailleurs: A History of The 4th Louisiana and the Acadians of Company H.
NATCHEZ: The Historic Natchez Conference explores the history of the Natchez region. The 2004 conference, “South by Southwest: Exploring the History of the Old Natchez District,” brings together recognized scholars, archivists, students and the general public to discuss subjects as diverse as the planter aristocracy, the slave trade, Irish immigration, the Civil Rights era, free African Americans and World War II. Participants will visit historic sites, view exhibits and attend parties in historic houses. It seems the lectures are free of charge, but the special events carry a nominal fee. For registration information, contact the Historic Natchez Foundation, P.O. Box 1761, Natchez, MS 39121, or phone 601-442-2500 or fax 601-442-2525. Prefer email? Try firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.natchez.org The historic Natchez Eola Hotel is offering a special conference rate. 601-445-6000.
