Dear Classmates and Friends:                                                                 October 23, 2019

The party is over and it was a great time for all.  We missed those of you who couldn't make it.  Next time, hopefully.

Take a look at the 60th Reunion pictures in the Pictures Gallery.  These terrific shots were taken by Dan and Elaine Johnston Douglas, who have played a role in recording our past reunions as well.  If you are interested in downloading the pictures for local use, here is the URL address to do that.  I hope it works.

Our intention in the coming days is to provide you with a brief summary of our weekend experience.  We will do our best. Incidentally, a list of all attendees is included in the pictures gallery folder if you are interested.

For now, thanks to all who attended and made the weekend wonderful.  The reunion planning committee worked hard to provide a worthwhile celebration of our 60th year since graduation in 1959. The reunion experience was our sweet payback.

Onward New Canaan.......

The Reunion Planners: Meg McLean, Andrea Cousins, Elaine Johnston Douglas, Dave Elders, Dave Emmerich, Barbara Tiani Lapolla, Helshi Lockwood, Skip Raymond, Joe Rucci, and Honorary Classmate Karen Stewart

NCHS 60th Reunion



The planning committee for our 60th high school reunion met on June 23 at Dave Elders’ home in Rowayton, CT. Those present were Dave, Joe Rucci. Elaine Johnston Douglas, Steve Gravereaux, Helshi Lockwood and Meg McMurray McLean (via Zoom). Also on the committee are Andrea Cousins, Barbara Tiani Lapolla, and Skip Raymond.


We have some preliminary plans in place and need your feedback on whether or not you would plan to attend. The dates are: Friday, October 18 through Sunday, October 20, 2019 and will coincide with NCHS Homecoming.


Friday evening we will meet at the Elders’ home in Rowayton for a casual meal and talk fest.  Time to be finalized but likely 6PM.


Saturday will feature the NCHS football game at 1:00 pm. We are looking into other options for those who are not big football fans. Suggestions so far include the New Canaan Historical Society, a tour of Grace Farms renowned River Building architecture, a chat around a bonfire at a classmate’s back yard (would need a volunteer), a New Canaan Nature Center walk. Other input on ideas from you are welcome.


Saturday evening will likely be a casual dinner at Restaurant 123 in Vista New York (formerly The Hearth) and will include a program to catch up with class news.


We expect the cost for eating and tips for two nights to be about $100 per person.



We have checked group rates and availability for the Hilton Garden Inn in Norwalk (the same place used for our 55th) and the Doubletree Hotel also in Norwalk just over the Darien line on the Post Road.  The Doubletree’s Rates are $89.00 per night plus tax; the Hilton’s Rates are $169.00 per night plus tax.  So, we have blocked a number of rooms at the Doubletree for Friday and Saturday night.  These are on hold until September 18th.  So, if you are coming please make your reservations before then.  Here is how to do that:


If you register online, follow prompts to complete reservation--record your confirmation number.

Reservations can also be made by calling (800) 492-7148 and requesting the group: New Canaan Class of 59. Check-in: 18 Oct 2019; Check-out: 20 Oct 2019.
