A very special destination halfway between the White Mountains and the Maine Coast
Wellesley High Class of 1964
We were the class that witnessed the JFK assassination during the fall of our senior year. The Sunshine Dairy was alive and well and gave us sustenance, a place to hang out and Mrs. Wright's willing ear. Many graduated straight into Viet Nam -- or did everything possible to avoid it. We danced the Watusi and the Frug despite Mrs. Ferguson's attempts to civilize us. And we ate pizza at Roma's, snacks at Ma's Lunch, ice cream sundaes at Bailey's, drank Lime Rickey's at Brighams and Fribbles at Friendlies. We buried John Capron, Buster Weisenbach and Karl Ceisluk. Everyone has a story about Town Line Liquors and Dan Ward's Drugstore. The Beatles made headlines on the Ed Sullivan Show and Mr. Graves' voice began our days.
For 50 years I documented the progress our classmates made -- our own personal nostalgia. In 2014 we celebrated our 50th Reunion at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Waltham. President Leo Boyle and Paul Machlin were our keynote speakers. We celebrated with a Friday cocktail party at Vin and Charlotte Trubiani's home, an LGBT reception hosted by Buddy Mear, and a tour of the new Wellesley High, narrated by Gig Babson. 2GB flash drives were mailed to each classmate attending 2 weeks before the reunion and contained a scan of our original yearbook, an up-to-date Yearbook Supplement and lots of photographs.
After the 50th I retired. It has been an adventure keeping tabs on 375 classmates.
...but retiring has been a hard thing to do so you will continue to see posts on the Wellesley High Class of 1964 Facebook page.
