Event Details

The Must Attend Event of 2014...our Class of 1979 35th High School Reunion!


This will be a fun weekend! Please share with your classmates that you are coming and encourage them to attend! Our class reunions have become legendary for great attendance, lots of reminiscing, reconnecting with old friends, seeing and thanking our teachers, celebrating the lives of our late classmates and donating funds to our school (oh, and trying to convince our families how normal we all were in high school).




Saturday, June 21, 11 am to 1 pm

Old School Walk-Through and Class Photo

Location: 719 S Carrollton Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70118

This is likely the last time to see our old school as we've learned it's slated for decommissioning soon. Bring your entire family! Bring your own lunch!  Class photo on the front steps at 12:30pm. Park in a legal space on the street nearby. Dress casual.


Saturday, June 21, 7 pm to 10 pm

Class Party at Daniel Brockhoeft’s home, co-hosted by Kelley (Lozes) Hunter-Ellis

Location: 1456 Camp Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

This is Daniel’s new home on Coliseum Square. The location and party will be spectacular! Heavy hors d'oeuvres and white wine, beer and sodas. Park in a legal space on the street nearby or take a cab.  It's not safe to walk from downtown or the French Quarter. We will have security at the entrance to Daniel's house. Adult (over age 21) event only. Dress up for this party!


Sunday, June 22, Noon to 3 pm

Shrimp Boil at Matt Emerson’s home

Location: 2446 Royal Street, New Orleans, LA 70117

Lots of shrimp, jambalaya, wine, beer and sodas will be served. Park in a legal space on the street nearby. Children and grandchildren are welcome with a purchased ticket (children under age 10 are free)! Dress casual.



Calling all classmates! Here's a link to our Class Survey. It takes about 3 minutes to complete and should provide us with interesting and fun insight about who we've become. Whether or not you'll be attending the reunion, please take a moment to complete.


We encourage you to reach out and plan meetups with classmates throughout the weekend.



We raised $2,700 for the school at our 30th reunion. Please do consider making a donation this year by going to www.benfranklinhighschool.org. We will track our total class giving and report the total to you at the end of reunion. OG SNOCLAF!

Children and grandchildren are invited to the school walkthrough on Saturday and the Sunday party at Matt's house. Each adult and child attendee must purchase a ticket. Children under age 10 are free!

Is there a recommended hotel?

There are so many great hotels in New Orleans at a range of prices. For the past couple reunions we arranged hotel blocks but they weren't utilized. So, use the resources you know -- orbitz.com, expedia.com, hotels.com -- and find the hotel that fits your budget and location preference.
