Paul, I received mail from Neal Walsh that said Greg is coming to the reunion.  It will be great to see you guys again.  I'll be the short guy with a midsize bellie, short hair what's left of it.  Went to see my surgeon for my back and he's given me the green light to go back to playing golf and all the other things I've been doing since retireing in 88.  Yes 88.  I followed my wife around for 11 years until she retired from the Navy in 99.  Tuff life but some one has to do it.  I think I found Greg.  Now living in Carlisle, PA.  Phone 717-258-1484.  No "E" address though.  I haven't had a chance to call that number since I found it last night.  Ben on the road since 5:30 this morning going to the doctors and 3 hour difference makes it a little late to call him.  If you try my phone is 541-332-5063 or cell 541-290-4450 please give it to him and we all can play phone tag.  Take care.

Thanks for that info Bill, I'll try to give Greg a call and see if he's still breathing...;)


Update, I just called and got his answering machine, it was definitely Greg's voice on the other end.   I left him a message to call me.

Paul.  I left him a message too.  Maybe he's out playing golf and had a bad round.  Time will tell if he returns any of our calls.  Later.

Evelyn Ouellette (1959)

Hello Wilbyites,

I'm Class of '59 living in Palm Springs, CA and just checking out this message board and thought I'd reach out to all.  I missed my 50th reunion and regret it.   I've been retired from teaching for seven years now and love it.  Hope to hear from anyone who's from that time.

Hi Evelyn (Evey) Ouellette - It was grand to see your name on the board.  I check every once in awhile for 59 classmates but they don't seem to show up.  Did you retire from teaching to sunny Palm Springs, CA or were you teaching somewhere out  there on the West Coast?  I have a cousin in Palm Springs and Jack has a nephew who lives in San Francisco but owns property in Palm Springs.  We, however, have not been there al-though have been invited.  Have been to San Diego though and a little place called Squaw Valley in the foothills of the Giant Sequoias.  Sorry you missed the 50th, it was grand although the numbers are dwindling.  I have managed to go to all of them.  Don't know if there is going to be another one anytime soon, although all the committe members are still milling around.  Hope our messages will be seen by some others and they will add a line.  Hope to see you here again or if you want to get intouch by e-mail let me know -

Evelyn Ouellette (1959)

Hi Elaine,  I am thrilled to hear from you.  I really didn't think anyone would remember me, never mind my kid name of Evie. Well, I would love to continue chatting via email.

My last years of teaching were here and I loved it so much that I stayed.  I haved lived along the northern coast of CA since I left CT in '78.  This is different but I love it.  Lots of peace and serenity here. 

Well, lets stay in  touch and let me know who else is out there from '59.

We are hoping to begin planning for our 45th reunion sometime after Labor Day. If there is anyone from the class who has any suggestions as to time of year, venue, activities,  etc., please feel free to post. If you know the whereabouts of any classmates, please forward the information so that we can update our records. We are looking to make it as memorable of an occasion as our 40th was.

I hope you are all healthy and happy. Looking forward to hearing from you.

The Wilby High School 45th Reunion committee wishes to thank each and every one of you who attended Saturday's special event.  It was truly an amazing day on every, venue, food, and music...all made even better by   those classmates who wer able to be there. It truly exceeded all of our expectations and we appreciate that you were the reason for that being so. I believe that the consensus of opinion was that as we get "older", the friends who helped shape us into who we are today become even more important as touchstones in our lives today.

To those who were not able to be there, please know that you were truly missed. It is our sincerest hope that you will be able to join us to celebrate our 50th reunion, a milestone event. We have selected October 10, 2020 as the date for that and we hope to see as many people as can possibly make it. No plans have been made other than the date but be assured that we will do our best for it to be a very memorable celebration for all.

Please help us by emailing me (Lorraine) with any changes (ie address, phone, email) so that our files can remain up to date. Also, we ask that if you do not want to be included in any future reunions, kindly email me so that I can remove your name from the list and you will not receive further notices.

Again, thanks to those who came for giving us the opportunity to reconnect, celebrate, share old memories, make new ones, and allow us to look forward to the time when we meet again. Stay well and be happy, friends.

Maria Ricciardi (Ciarlo) (1965)

Hello all you Wilbyites from the class of 1965!

We just celebrated our 50th reunion Saturday Oct. 3rd, 2015. If you attended our event at the Country Club Of Waterbury, then you had a blast!  We can't say enough about our class. You are the best. You came from all corners of the country.

We never stopped dancing. For 4 hours we did the twist, mashed potatoes, the bristol stomp, locomotion and the list goes on! It was just like we were on Bandstand! Funny how it just all comes natural. We never missed a step!

Our D.J. Nunzio Cipriano did a great job keeping "our songs" going. 

I for one will never forget this special reunion. Seeing old friends and making new ones.

We said this was our last time, but, now I'm not so sure.

Maria Ricciardi Ciarlo- Reunion committee member


P.S. The class of 1985 is looking for classmates who might be interested in doing their 30th in Dec.

If you are interested please e-mail me I'll forward the info:

Sandra Young (1965)

Yes, the class of 1965 reunion was a blast.  For those of you in the Waterbury area or planning on being in the area, we meet up 3 times a year.  January is our holiday party, May is our spring fling and October is our fall festival.  We meet at the same place all the time, San Marino's restaurant in Waterbury.  Our next gathering is on Friday, January 15th at 6 pm. We meet in the bar area and there is no fee or RSVP.  Each person is responsible for their own food and drink.  It is always like "Christmas" as we never know who will attend. We have accumulated quite a list of classmates that attend these functiolns over the years.  Everyone is friendly and looks forward to meeting classmates that we did not have the opportunity to "hang" with during the school years.

We also have an email listing of classmates whereby we keep you informed of what is happening; whether it is a gathering or the passing of a friend, whether you are in the area or not, everyone is included in this email. Please provide me with your email address (  if you wish to be included.  

Happy and Healthy New Year

Sandra Young
