DeCocq-Mutrux Reunion held
The annual DeCocq-Mutrux Reunion featured a collection of 40 photos of brothers and sisters. Among the collection was a photo of brothers JD, Bob, Laverne, Leland and Lynn with their cousin Ted, which was taken in 1934, and a photo of sisters Eunice (Cole), Tressia (Leonard) and Faye (Herrel) taken in 1929.
Pookie DeCocq hosted a contest that gave young reunion attendees the opportunity to guess the number of candies in a jar. Derek Meeks, great-grandson of Willis Brendlinger, won the contest.
