At our regular monthly luncheon meeting everyone agreed our 60th reunion was a blast.  Great vibes from everyone present and those who were not there that we missed, both living and deceased.

At a food conference I attended last month at Ole Miss, the subject was BBQ.  We live in an area of the country with a rich food history related to BBQ.  Memphis style BBQ is one of four unique styles of BBQ recognized in the U.S.  What we grew up eating in Corinth is largely Memphis style BBQ.  Fraley's Drive-In and Byrd's Dairy Queen are two with memorable BBQ I remember in Corinth from our childhood.  The oldest operating BBQ restaurant in Memphis is Leonard's BBQ dating back 100 years to 1922.  Originally located in South Memphis with multiple locations, the restaurant today is still operational at a sole location in East Memphis.  

What this conference impressed upon me was the way the BBQ restaurant business is changing.   As the population changes, foodways change.   Every BBQ style is being influenced by other styles spreading across the country.  The most trendy right now is Texas style.   I think it is important that we support existing businesses that we would like to succeed a little longer into the future.  The BBQ at Leonard's will remind you the way it used to be when you were growing up.

So as a means of experiencing some food history, having another Class of 1962 shared memory, and hopefully seeing all our classmates living in the Memphis area, I propose this ROAMING REUNION LUNCHEON in Memphis, Monday, December 5th, 11:30 A.M.  Hope to see you there!

Hostesses Vonceil Brewster Smith and Patricia Jobe Ardoin would like to invite everyone to our next monthly get-together at Vacari's on Cruise Street in downtown Corinth on Wednesday, January 11, 2023 at 11 A.M.    Regular  luncheon will not be held in December.

Please note time has been changed to Eleven A.M. (11 A.M) instead of noon.

Same place, new time except due to a scheduling conflict with the DAR we had to shift to the second Wednesday of each month.  The conversations and memories never seem to stop flowing.

We hope any out of town classmates able to make the trip will join us.

Please notify Vonceil (662) 872-9208 or Patricia (662) 415-5816 by Monday, 1/9/2023, if you can attend our next monthly luncheon so we can give a head count to the restaurant.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

I've had my share of pleasure

      And even more of pain

And both I've come to treasure,

   The sunshine AND the rain;

    With little left to boast of

   The scars I bear a host of

Now help me make the most of

  The moments that remain.
