Hello Fellow Tara High School Trojans,

We are currently preparing a Tara High School Alumni gathering at this year’s homecoming game. The event is set to take place at the Olympia Stadium October 9th. The times will be disclosed at a later date. We are reaching out to ALL fellow TROJANS to help make this event a memorable one. We are asking for your assistance in donations, volunteered help, ideas, contributed items such as grills, tables, chairs, paper plates, etc.

We know this is a rather short time but we are still able to get the ball rolling. Just to make it clear, our overall goal is to maybe start this annually, to support our TROJAN football team, and this is a great opportunity for us to get everyone’s current contact information as a means of inviting everyone properly when the big 10, 20, and 30+ year reunion time rolls back around.

We know there are some that have been successful in assembling past reunion functions, and we would like your input. We have scheduled a meeting Sept. 23rd at the Raising Canes on Corporate Blvd. The actual address is 5211 Corporate Blvd. Baton Rouge , La. and everyone is invited to come and share all ideas. Please arrive between 6-6:30pm if you decide to participate. If you can not participate but would still like to donate money or items. We will send out another email very soon explaining how you would be able to do so. If you have any questions please email Brandon Cage at ***** or Henry Cavalier at ***** and we’ll get back to you at out earliest convenience.

Thanks Again,
