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 two events. 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!

Marion, sending early birthday wishes to you. Last one before we all hit the Big 80! Hope you have a great day. Seems like yesterday when we lived in White Hills and you came to visit me — Jason was just a baby then. Where did the years go?

Judy, wishing you everything good for your upcoming birthday. So sorry you couldn’t make our reunion — it was a great time and it would have been so good to see you. Hope your family can be there again this year to celebrate your birthday. Hope all is well with you. A group of our classmates still get together for lunch and it’s so much fun reminiscing about our school days — where did all those years go? So glad we are keeping the website going for another two years as it allows so many of us living across the country the opportunity of keeping in touch. Enjoy your special day.

Pat, I hope your upcoming birthday is special. Can you believe we all hit the Big 80 next year? Missed seeing you and your husband at our 60th last September — it was a fun time and we were glad so many of our classmates attended. Again, Happy Birthday and stay safe and well.

Gloria, a little early but can’t miss the opportunity to wish you a very Happy Birthday and healthy, happy year ahead. Also, I know I speak for everyone to thank you for the dedication you have shown in keeping our website going. Our website has brought so many of our classmates connected and publishing news about our events — especially for those that were unable to attend. Thank you for offering to keep our site open for another two years. Your efforts are appreciated by all.

Gwen, wishing you a happy upcoming birthday. So sorry you couldn’t make the reunion. We had a very good turnout and it was a fun night. Hope you were able to view the pictures on our website. Speaking of the website, we are going to keep it going another two years — so many people enjoy it and we had a lot of requests to keep it going. Again, best wishes for a Happy Birthday.

Linda, sending an early birthday wish for your special day. It was so good to see you at our 75th and wish you were able to attend our 60th; we had a good turnout and was a great time — although a little sad as it was probably our last whole-class event. Enjoy your birthday.

Gabby, couldn’t miss the chance to wish you a Happy Birthday. I am so thankful we reconnected through our reunion meetings and friendship that evolved.

Bob, an early birthday wish to my brother. So fondly look back on our friendship in our school years. How can we forget the night you took your family car out without permission to pick me up and console me after an argument with my boyfriend and you damaged the car. You were a good friend and I treasure the friendship during those years. So good to see you and Sue at the reunion!
