Class of 1966 sets a date for its 40th reunion

They haven't settled on a links location, or put a price tag on the event, but the reunion committee for the Madison Central High School Class of 1966 has set a date and decided where they're going to have dinner. Here's the scoop on that 40th class reunion, courtesy of Sue Benell Puccio:

When: Saturday, September 30, 2006
Where: Knights of Columbus
5256 Verona Road, Fitchburg
Time: Cocktails at 6:00 p.m.,
followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

In addition to the main event, the Class of 1966 is also planning a Saturday afternoon golfing get-together and a Friday night gathering at an undetermined location. Sue's email hints at the possibility that alumni from other classes may be invited to attend Friday's event.

The email also reports that, "The Class of 1966 reunion planning committee includes Kathy Russell (Wolff), Angie Loniello, Dan Gronli, Dave, Melum, Jim Meuer, Karen Meuer, Gerhard Ellerkamp, Monsine Di Salvo, Tommy Doyle and me, Sue Benell Puccio. As usual, the reunion meetings are as much fun as the actual event. We spend lots of time reminiscing about all the good times at Central High."

If you have questions about the Class of 1966 reunion and you don't know how to contact any of the committee members, send me an email and I'll forward it.

In the meantime, if you're no longer living in the Madison area, but plan to return for the reunion, given serious consideration to where you're going to sleep that weekend. The Badgers will be in Bloomington on September 30th, but cow fans will be arriving from all over the world to attend the World Dairy Expo, which opens October 3rd. So book that hotel room now -- or make plans to reserve space on someone's sofa.

Update (6/26/2006): Reunion invitations will be mailed to members of the Class of 1966 this week. The class is also sponsoring an informal All-Central get-together at The Pub on Friday, September 29, 2006. It begins at 6 p.m. and runs until closing time or whenever all good Central alumni are tucked in their beds, whichever comes sooner.

I went to Central the last year they were open and have always chosen to go to the Central reunions over the reunions at West where I graduated because of all the friends I had at Central. I know that Steve Masino lives in Florida and could get his address for you. Sue Piazza

Well, the class of '66 reunion is in the books, and it was a very well planned. Thank you to all the committee members for their hard work and commitment to keep the old memories alive. Thanks to Nadine for such a great website to stay in touch...
