Class of 1997 Celebrates 20-Year Reunion with Weekend Festivities
The Class of 1997 celebrated their 20th year reunion on the weekend of April 7-8. And what a celebration it was! The ’97 guys started the celebration early on Friday morning by assisting with setup at the annual Jesuit Golf Classic at English Turn. Then the clubs came out and the fun began as the class fielded eight foursomes in the morning round.
After an afternoon of rest, the Blue Jays and their wives or guests continued the celebration at Manning’s as they renewed relationships while the Honey Island Swamp Band played in the background. With more than 130 people enjoying the event, it was one of the largest reunion turnouts in years.

Opting for a Saturday mid-day stag reception at Pier 424 Seafood Market in the heart of the French Quarter on Bourbon Street, the guys were able to take in the sights and sounds of the French Quarter Festival, especially from the vantage point of the venue’s large balcony. The efforts of class leader Warren Surcouf and his reunion committee paid off big-time as the ’97 Blue Jays are already talking about their Silver Anniversary celebration only five years away. Vegas, anyone?
