The GPGC 55th Anniversary Reunion Announcement:

Dear Fellow Giftie:

Crossing the Contraband

Can you believe it has been five years since our spectacular 50th Anniversary GPGC Reunion? A couple hundred of us got together back then and had a grand time catching up with each other and with the Program itself.

We laughed, we cried, we ate, drank and etc. And we miss it! So your decrepit (er, I mean intrepid) executive committee of the GPGC Alumni Association has shaken off the cobwebs and is cooking up plans for another grand gathering this summer.

Our 55th Anniversary Reunion will run from Thu evening to Sun morning. You can attend all or part of it. We don't have the agenda nailed down just yet, but since it's being planned by gifties -- it's BOUND to be awesome of course. ;-)

Josh Brown and the rest of the GPGC staff have penciled in the 2013 end of Program schedule. It looks like:

  • Musical Production: Wednesday to Friday, July 24, 25, 26 at 7:00 PM
  • Drama Production: Thursday and Friday, July 25 and 26 at 3:00 PM
  • Graduation Ceremonies: Saturday, July 27 at 9:00 AM
  • Final Chorus / Large Ensemble Concert: Saturday, July 27 at 3:00 PM
  • GPGC Alumni Dinner & Dance: Saturday, July 27 at 6:00 PM

The reunion will take place on the McNeese campus and at the Holiday Inn & Suites on Lake St. Please make your reservations for the hotel SOON because rooms in Lake Charles for that time have already started to fill up! More information about the hotel can be found by clicking on the following link:
