I too was saddened to see the list of those who were no longer with us. It would be nice to have so details on when they passed etc. I am having lunch with Vinny today and i'll see if he has any information that i can add.

If you have looked at the missing classmates list and know where any of them might be now let me know and i will try to find them. Thanks for your support on this project!

I was looking at my class book and comparing the class members with the site list. Seems some members in the class book are not on the 50th site.

Loved seeing the survey. So far looks like only three interested in Golf. Glen mentioned we need more mixing time. Not sure which I had more fun at last time but I really enjoyed the cocktails on Friday night and really loved the brunch on Sunday for mixing. I found plenty of time for mixing at the dinner dance too last time (2000) I am so looking forward to going this next time especially at this age...while I can. Having been gone from home since 1984 there are so many things I have missed and find myself wanting to see so much.
I'm so happy Lonnie has set up this site. I've gotten to chat with quite a few and made new friendships and ignited old ones. Plus reading the profiles have learned what a lot of you have done and where you have disappeared to. It's been great. I love it when y'all have taken the time to post some photos too. All I can say is TG we get name tags.LOL.....This is going to be interesting.
hugs, Doreen

Ditto on the name tags. I have been trying to find missing classmates on Facebook and comparing our yearbook photos to the the ones showing on Facebook. It aint easy!! So far not much luck. Any other suggestions?

Gee I notice on our recent invitation nothing was mentioned about Sunday and having a brunch. I hope they are still considering having one as the one in 2000 was wonderful. I think I had more fun at it than at the reunion diner itself as we were all more relaxed and socialized a lot more. If none is planned I guess we could find a place and congregate with friends we meet up with the night before. I just thought it was the best touch of the weekend.

terrible memory as I can't remember the place we had it off of Dixwell behind where McDonalds was or is. Sigh! I can remember from 1960 but now Ha! Anyway it was nice and quaint something I miss down here in TN. We have "nothing" nice like that where I am. Sigh! I miss CT. and New England and all the quaint places.

I am so looking forward to this.
Hugs, Doreen

in response to Mr Appicella's comments. I was the person who had to go into the audience and bring people up on stage. The lamp shade hat was spectacular. You are all correct, we were BAD for our time. however, that was long before police and guns came to school. Those were the Good Times. We were lucky to grow up in such a nice town, we all Feared God, our teachers, and especially our parents. If we did something wrong, we knew it, and our parents knew it before we got home. No Cell phones, computer messages, or texting. Just plain old Ma Bell and the fact that when you got caught you paid the consequences, and if you talked back to your parents, you got slapped for it. They had no fear of us, or hurting our feelings. We knew where we stood. I believe that we were all Good Kids and we had a love amongst us that lasted all these years.

Rosemary was right "Those were the Good Days" even our "bad" things wern't usually "Bad" but funny and it seems like our generation had the last of those times. Very sad.

Looking so forward to seeing Y'all next Friday and Saturday.

My wife and I just want to thank all on the committee for a wonderfully planned event. Being in the food and catering business I was very impressed with all that went into it right down to the chocolate thimbles for the cordials. I know all the effort that had to go into making it so special. Thanks to all again.

Wow what an awesome time. Thanks to all the commitee members you did GREAT. I was so thrilled to see friends from the past that I thought I'd lost forever and friends from the reunion in 2000 too.

I loaded a bunch of photos on my Photobucket site and am adding the link.

Either click or cut and paste to your computer

Just to let you know I have no plans on taking my link to photobucket down.

If you click on a photo it will enlarge if you right click it will allow you to do a save as and you can make a file on your computer with the shots you want.  You can also just bookmark the site for your pleasure.

 

When I get time I'm going to see if I can find the shots from 2010 and add them to the album but not sure when as I have to do it in down because I have slow satelitte here.

 

I love you all and I'm thrilled to share these with you. If anyone has a problem you can e-mail me at

Hi Doreen,

  Your pictures of the reunion are great but since I was unable to make the 50th reunion I don't know the people in the pictures. Is it possible to add names? A very few people I might be able to make out who they are but most I can't. Hoping that you can add the names.

                     Sincerely, Georgene Keeley McShane

I think that having a 51st is a great idea.  For us in Arizona, unless I had multiple reasons to fly to CT, I likely would not attend.

Dear Classmates,

I just got word that my cousin and our classmate Grace Landino Ivan passed away today, very peacefully at home.  She had been sick for a number of years but always handled her illness with strength and dignity.  I had tried to get her to come to our 50th Class Reunion but she just wasn't up to it at the time.  May she rest in peace.
