Reunions are welcome sight in area

Welcome home!

Close to 1,000 Miss-Lou natives will once again eat, drink, sleep and celebrate on their old stomping grounds, and the community couldn’t be happier to see you all back.

The Sadie V. Thompson Era Reunion kicked off Thursday, with an estimated 500 people expected.

This group of graduates gathers every two years, welcoming all Thompson students from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

It is inspiring that these classmates have stayed as connected as they obviously are, and the attendance at each reunion is overwhelming. Credit certainly goes to the organizers but also to each person in attendance for their commitment to their classmates, faculty and the school they loved so dearly.

The crowd at the Natchez Convention Center, local restaurants and hotels shows just how much of an economic impact this reunion has.

In Vidalia, graduates of Vidalia High School prior to 1969 are gathering beginning today.

This crowd only adds to a crowded weekend of fun and friends across the Miss-Lou.

To all those returning home for the weekend, we hope you can be as proud of what you see in your hometown as we are of all of you.

And remember, y’all come back now, ya hear.
