DAY 169 Rickey Lewis, Jr. photographed exclusively for the 100 Men Hall People Project (100MHPP). 

My grandparents were born and raised here in Bay Saint Louis. Bernard and Dorothy Mae Labat. (Myron’s my uncle and his sister Darlene my aunt). As a kid I remember hearing the music and the sound and the atmosphere and the excitement about wanting to be older and come in here. I wasn’t able to come in but we played all around here at night. The church fairs were going on outside and this place was happening and there was the anticipation of one day being able to see what’s inside. I missed the happenings because it had closed. I teach and coach at high school at Pass Christian.
