I accepted Gloria Laks Schnyder's challenge to begin posting baby pictures and have posted a picture of me taken in front of my first Christmas tree at eight months. Okay, Gloria, your turn!

Attended Butler Business after graduating from Central and then worked at Sikorsky Aircraft as a secretary until I had my daughter; I had a son a year and a half later and was a stay-at-home mom for several years and then went back to Sikorsky and worked for a few years and left to have my third son; I was home again for about three years and then went back to Sikorsky again. I had several administrative positions, however, the last fourteen years, I supported three different presidents.

In January 2012, I decided to retire and my husband and I went to Florida in March of that year and I have been doing some projects around my home -- just taking time to enjoy retirement.
After joining our website in 2012, I began to work on the committee planning the 70th birthday party and had so much fun reconnecting with classmates that I have been working on our past three events. Working on the committee for the events gave me the opportunity to work with an incredible number of people. Our website has served as such a catalyst to renew friendships and make new friends. Kudos to Terry Ryan for introducing our class to it and maintaining it until Gloria Williamson Moreau volunteered to maintain it for us. Many thanks to both of them.

Since joining the website, it has given me the wonderful opportunity to reconnect with so many classmates that I had lost contact with over the years. The website has given us all the tool needed to communicate with classmates that were such an important part of our lives and gives us the opportunity to relive the wonderful memories we had at Central.

I had the pleasure of attending Central's graduating class of 2014 Annual Award's Ceremony where Gloria Cerreta Manning presented a leadership award from the Central Class of 1961 to the Micayla Hall, Class President. The "leadership award" presented to Micayla was the only award of its type presented that evening and she was very appreciative to receive it. She is planning to attend college in Palm Beach, FL and is a lovely young lady and very deserving of the award. I was very happy to attend the ceremony and witness this young lady receive this award from our class.

I have the pleasure of working on the committee to plan the 55th reunion of our class for August 12-13th of next year. It has been such a rewarding experience for me to again reconnect with so many friends that shared a very special part of my life. I do hope to see many of our classmates attend the reunion and share memories of this time of our lives -- we all shared a lot of laughter and tears together and I'm sure everyone would agree that we had a wonderful time at our 70th birthday party and I would love to see as many classmates attend the reunion to join the fun!

I am so very sad to hear of Riger's passing and send my sincere condolences to Kit, his girls and everyone who loved him.  Roger was a great guy and my memories of him go back to when we ride our bikes on Woodridge Circle in Trumbull back in the 50's, then attending Middlebrook and CHS.  We lost touch after high school until we reconnected on the website and I enjoyed our conversations on the website.  May he Rest in Peace.

Sandy, sending my very best wishes for your upcoming birthday. Wish we were closer and could celebrate together — maybe a little quieter than our adventures so many years ago. Who can forget our trip to Miami at age 19 — two amateurs for a week in Miami — don’t think the city was ever the same again!????????

I am so saddened to learn of Gabby's passing.  I knew Gabby from Middlebrook and CHS and reconnected with her at our reunion committee meetings and we enjoyed many lunches together over the years.  She was an intelligent, kind person who will be sorely missed.  My sincere condolences to her husband, Bob.  Rest in Peace, Gabby.

Charlie, Happy Birthday and you are now a member of the 80-year old club — can you believe it? Wish you could have made our birthday party — we had a very good turnout — so good that so many of our classmates still enjoy getting together. Congratulations on winning your golf tournament. Have a great day.
