On July 12th The Louisiana Orphan Train Society Annual Gathering unites orphan train riders and their descendents annually. It will feature special guest Mrs. Alice Bernard, who is the only known surviving orphan train rider from New York. She is 98 years of age. Recognition of the annual President’s Award will be announced. The best part about the reunion is the open mike where members have the opportunity to share their New York orphan stories.
