Join us in saving Margaret Martin

On behalf of the Natchez High School/Margaret Martin Junior High School reunion and fundraising committee, we would like to thank The Natchez Democrat for the excellent coverage of our Saturday, Aug. 25 event from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at the Margaret Martin Performing Arts Center.

We would like to also bring everyone up to date and try to clear up some confusion.

Our sole purpose is to have a reunion and raise money for the building.

We first looked at the possibility of redoing the cafeteria but immediately realized the project would cost too much money.

The roof and windows would need to be repaired first or we would be wasting time and money.

The plans now are to have everything for the barbecue and reunion be handicap friendly.

Please secure your tickets now, as the Allen Brown cooking team needs to have a head count to prepare the meal.

It is not often that you can have a man cooking for you that has two Super Bowl rings.

Tickets are $25 each and are now available at the Natchez Convention Center, Davidson’s Package Store or by calling 601-445-2210.

This is your chance for all Natchez High School classes (1927-1961) and Margaret Martin Junior High School classes (1962-1985) plus friends of the building to make a donation or purchase tickets to help save our building.
