Camille luncheon, Aug. 17, 2009

Here are photographs from today’s luncheon to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Hurricane Camille. More than a hundred people attended the luncheon, which featured Bill Read, head of the National Hurricane Center; and special presentations to Danny Guice, who was mayor of Biloxi in 1969; and to Julia Guice, who served as the city’s Civil Defense director when Camille came ashore.
