Saturday is the last day to order your Denham Springs High School Class of 1976 Reunion tickets before the price goes up.

My plans are to mail my check this week, and I’m hoping most of my classmates follow suit.

The reunion is July 9 at Lafleur’s Seafood Restaurant, 6895 Magnolia Beach Road, Denham Springs.

A committee has been working for months to plan a fun reunion, and they need our money to pay for the venue, food, entertainment and other expenses.

It’s $50 per person if you pay before June 11, and the price goes up to $60 after the early deadline. The last day to purchase tickets is June 25.

Send your check or money order to Class of 76, c/o Jackie Hunstock Bentley, 8135 Violet St., Denham Springs, LA 70726 or c/o Karen Sullivan St. Cyr, 307 Garden Lane, Denham Springs, LA 70726.

Looking forward to seeing all my classmates. Hopefully, thanks to name badges with our yearbook photos, I’ll recognize everyone.
