Holy Cross Episcopal School set for reunion

Former students invited to first-ever gathering April 9-10

Holy Cross Episcopal Day School was a parochial elementary school in West Memphis, Arkansas, which was in operation from 1959 through 1985. Under a progressive leadership established by Father and Mrs. Fred Kneipp, the students of Holy Cross were exposed to arts, languages, and a broad array of knowledge and learning experiences beginning in their first grade of school. Many of the students expressed thanks for this window to the wide world the school opened in the tiny town surrounded by cotton and soybean fields, in the shadow of the Bluff City across the Mississippi River. A few of the alumni of Holy Cross reconnected through a Facebook page for West Memphis memories, and have been searching for their former classmates for the first, and probably only, school reunion. Anyone associated with Holy Cross Episcopal Day School or Church is invited to come visit and share memories and news. The reunion will include a tour of Holy Cross Church and the former school grounds, located at 209 Park Drive, on Saturday, April 9, followed by dinner and dancing that night at the Meadowbrook Country Club, located at 1250 West Broadway in West Memphis. On Sunday, April 10, at 9 a.m., all are invited to celebrate the Holy Eucharist at Holy Cross Episcopal Church. The fee to attend the reunion is $50 per person which includes a donation to the Holy Cross Episcopal Church. You may pay to attend at paypal.me/holycrossreunion. The schedule for the reunion is: Saturday April 9: • 2 to 5 p.m. — Visit Holy Cross Episcopal Church and the school grounds, 209 Park Drive. • 6:30 to 11 p.m. — Cocktails, buffet dinner, and dancing at the Meadowbrook Country Club, 1250 West Broadway. Sunday April 10: • 9 a.m. Service at Holy Cross Episcopal Church.
