What was happening in Classics in Louisiana back in 1992?  Our newsletter tells us, among other things:

  • M. J. Schexnayder and his Latin Classes at Slidell High School were translating sentences to raise  money for the LCA scholarships
  • Episcopal hosted an annual Middle School Latin Fest
  • Ken Kitchell and Moffitt Aycock presented a workshop for the SERC network entitled “Culture in the Latin Classroom.”
  • Elizabeth Hall’s Latin II students at the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts received Gold Medals for their performance on the National Latin Exam.
  • Jean D’Amato was awarded Mildred Hart Bailey Research Award by Northwestern State University CURIA (Council of University Research Institute Administration)
    1 rabbit fryer
    1 pint honey
    2 eggs
    1 c. milk
    2 c. pl. bread crumbs
    salt/blk. pepper to taste
    Bake the salted and peppered rabbit, tossed in honey and olive oil, in a 450 degree oven; debone and chop fine. Add eggs, milk, bead crumbs and seasoning to taste.  Mix well and form into balls. Cook again in 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.  Take out and pour remaining honey over them while cooling.  Serve warm. Excellent appetizer.
    * (Great) Balls of Hare!
    [Editor’s note: “Portia” is Jane Poynter. LCA members attending the 1985 meeting enjoyed this dish, contributed to the Roman Foods Contest by an Istrouma High student.)

  1. Ann,
    Thanks for the archived memories. Was that REALLY 18 years ago? Seems like yesterday! Seeing the list of then-current members brought up many emotions — among which were gratefulness for the continued association of so many long-term friends, and sadness for the ones who have passed.
