We’ve Boarded!

We’ve boarded and we are ready to head toward the parade route behind “Class of 1963” float. All floats were lined up in front of our Delcambre High School on Main Street.  Murray Landry was our driver; thank you Murray!

But Wait!!!  Where’s Ann Derise???  She is missing.

A Video Clip of us Partying on the Float

Ann Derise finally found us down the parade route!  Better late than Never!

Check out Berle Pullin… Singing “Born to Be Wild“.

Coach Darcy Delcambre was with his Football players and he joined us later that night!

Dale Babineaux…  Did something happen to your glasses during the parade ride?

Ellen Falgout & Evelyn Richard

 You Guys Got It!!!  In most high school classes, there is usually SOME type of talent within their group, but surely not as much as DHS Class of 1973.  Berle Pullin is not the only one who can sing, so can Ellen & Evelyn.  And guess what..  Even the ones in our class who could NOT sing, even sang!  We believe in FAKING it until you MAKE IT!

Hear Ellen sing some of her specialties – just click on the links and watch her in action below.

Ellen Sings – We Will Rock You

Ellen Sings – You Aint Woman Enough To Take my Man – DARCY

Ellen’s Got the Mic Again at the BonFire   Two Bits, Four Bits, Six Bits, A Dollar!

Class of '73 - 40th Reunion 9-29-13 thru 10-4-13 024

Lena Dore

 Are those teeth for Real???  Who would dare kiss her???  Well somebody did!

I hear rumors that Mark Landry was a good sport and actually kissed Lena and her beautiful teeth!  Maybe there is evidence of this, well only time will tell.

Sandra Lopez giving Wayne Landry Singing Lessons!

Who says Wayne is a quiet person???  Add a little beer, good company and a singing teacher who INSISTS he must sing…  Wayne out does himself!  The new George Jones was created that night.  It was good seeing you let your hair down!

Wayne Landry and Dale Babineaux, I bet you didn’t know you could sing like that!!!  It’s amazing what you do when you are under pressure and someone shoves a mic under your chin and demands that you SING! ROFL  You did it GOOD!

Andrea Broussard & Sharon Comeaux

Our 1973  Class Queen Andrea Broussard and Sharon Kay Comeaux with their glamour Orange n Black Blinky Dread Lock Hair.    They Bleed Panther Spirit!

Most classes want to be like Class of 1973, but they can’t.  Do you know why???  Because they just don’t have the talent to have fun.  It’s just plain and simple.  Class of 1973 ROCKS!!!

Darcy Delcambre – Slapped Shut!

What happened to Coach Darcy?  One second he is decorating the float with the rest of the class and the next second he is SLAPPED SHUT!

There is more going on that  meets the eye!  Darcy’s hair not only grew longer, it turned orange and it blinks!
Watch this.

DHS Homecoming Bon Fire – 2013

Classes for 1933, 1943, 1953, 1963, 1973, 1983, 1993 and 2003 were honored this year at the Delcambre High School Homecoming festivities.

Ms. July Brousssard, the only member attending the home coming festivities represented her class of 1933.  This was her 80th class reunion!  Not only did she attend the bonfire, she also rode in the homecoming parade.  We can only hope to reach the age of 80 years old.

  Slippin and a Slidin……  Or is she surfing????

Whatever she’s doing, it looks like she’s having a good time and Rachael never lets anything SLIDE when fun is involved.  Check out our other Class Reunion Pictures…  Rachael’s  in there doing something hysterical.  Rachael you ROCK!

At Denette & Jims Beautiful Camp

At Denette Viator & Jim Wiggins camp on Bayou Carlin.  What a great time was had by all.  We rode our home-made Class of 1973 Alumni float through town till approximately 9pm.

Attention was pointed to our float throughout the town by someone constantly being on the microphone and our loud fast and furious music!  People flocked from their homes and from their patios, just to be part of our DHS Class of 73 Float Party.  We stopped every now and then to allow a few to participate; then off again!

“Look at US!  Class of 1973 was heard throughout the streets of Delcambre, La.

There was a lot of dancing, singing and laughing going on, but we sure did work up an appetite!

Our bad boy, Chris Mayard, thought ahead and came to our rescue!  Chicken and sausage gumbo was waiting for us at our next stop, THANK YOU CHRIS!  And there was lots of it too!!!  Ellen Falgout and Lena Dore each made their signature potato salad and Susan Picard brought the traditional french bread.  Thank you!!!!!
