Pat C. Lamar isn’t going to let a simple thing like a broken hand, wrist and arm keep her from attending this weekend’s Homecoming Queen Reunion at the University of Mississippi on Saturday. Lamar was crowned Homecoming Queen in 1961.
She will be one of 36 former homecoming queens who have registered to attend the first-ever queen reunion.
The chairwoman of the reunion, Annabeth
The idea for a reunion came from former Homecoming Queen, Annabeth Freeman Wyatt, who was crowned queen in 2000.
Each former queen will be recognized individually at a welcome reception at 9 a.m. Saturday in Butler Auditorium inside the Triplett Alumni Center. (November 5, 2010, Page 1B)

Featured speaker this week will be Wayne Andrews, director of the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council. The YAC is responsible for bringing various events and programs to Oxford and Lafayette County.
