“06880” does not usually cover high school reunions.
Each one is special to the people in that class.
And no one else.
Today though, we make an exception today for the Staples Class of 1958.
For one thing, they celebrated a milestone this weekend: their 60th reunion.
Over 60 alums traveled from around the country to enjoy dinner at Rizzuto’s, a party on Owenoke and a breakfast at Compo Beach. The heat did not deter anyone.
For another, theirs was the last class at the old Staples High School on Riverside Avenue (now Saugatuck Elementary).
For a third, it was the last that included Wilton students. Wilton High School opened in 1959.
So yes, the Class of 1958 is special. Congratulations to all. See you at your 65th!
