We’re going to keep a list of people who have sent in their reservations by sending a check for the reunion.  Check here to see who’s coming, and encourage your friends to attend if you don’t see their names on the list.  We’ve also added a Contact Sheet (see top of this page for link).  Please, look for your friends, check out your own listing.  Make sure your address and email are correct and let me know if it is, or isn’t.  (If you’ve sent me a check, I have the correct information.)  A mark in the confirmed column means we have information, and it was right when we got it.  But people move, email and phone information changes.  Please check the list to see if you can supply any missing information for others!  Thanks!

We have had such a wonderful response with reservations for the reunion that we decided to extend the lower fees until May 1.  So, if you haven’t already made your reservation, you have a few more days to save money.  Until the 1st, it is $30 for Friday night, and $100 for Saturday night.  After that, it will be $40 for Friday night, and $125 for Saturday night.  There have been some people who sent in the increased amount, and we will refund the difference.

As of this moment, we have 142 reservations for Saturday night and 138 for Friday night!!  Fantastic response!  I heard today from 2 more who have “checks in the mail.”

As the time draws closer to the reunion weekend, we have more news.

Dress for the weekend:  Friday night at Zodie’s will be casual; it’s a golf course, but not a country club.  We want people to be comfortable and able to relax.  Saturday night’s attire took us a while to describe.  Back-country Casual?  No.  Elegant casual?  No.  Dressy Casual?  No.  We finally came upon the phrase — Festive Attire, no tie required.  L’Escale is a nice restaurant, one I would put in the class of a celebration restaurant — birthday, anniversary, special occasion.  But it’s not formal.

The other news is for daytime on Saturday.  Dale has arranged for Tod’s Point to be open to us for the weekend.  We have to utter the magic words — GHS Class of ’64 50th Reunion — at the gate, and we will be permitted entry.  This will hold for the whole weekend.  On Saturday, there will be a bus tour, leaving from the Sheraton in Stamford at about 10, that will go past the schools, and a lunch stop at Tod’s so we can revisit the concession.  You will need to sign up for the bus in advance so we know whether we will have enough people to hire the bus.  The fee would be somewhere in the $25 – 30 range, if we have a full bus.  Send Dale an email if you’re interested:

As of this moment (April 14th), we have received payment from 113 people for Friday and Saturday nights, not always the same people.  Some are coming for one night, some for both.  And I have emails from several people saying they have sent checks.

There have been some updates with plans for the reunion.  First — and maybe most important — is a change in the price for Saturday night.  We have received some donations from classmates to help defray the costs of the reunion.  We redid the budget, and the price for Saturday night at L’escale at the DeLaMar is now $100 per person if paid before April 15th; and $125 after April 15th.  This is a wonderful thing!  And many thanks from us to those who made the contributions.  Friday night will stay at $30 before April 15  and $40 after the 15th.

Now that the price is finalized, send in your reservations!!  Checks should be payable to:  GHS 50th Reunion and sent to:

GHS 64 Reunion, c/o Waggoner, PO Box 558, Bethel, CT  06801.

Greenwich Point will be open to the Class of ’64 for the weekend without charge.  More details about that will be coming.  It’ll be nice enough to actually be at the beach.  Come revisit the memories.  And we’re reserving a section at the Sunday brunch at the Sheraton so we can party in the morning as well.

Don’t forget to make your reservations at the Sheraton.  Greenwich High School Class of 1964 Reunion is the link to make them.  We believe the DeLaMar is booked for the weekend, but you can call them to make sure.  Cancellations do happen!

And don’t forget to check out the “where are they now?” page to see who is still missing.  If you have any ideas where they are, let me know!  Thanks.

The committee has worked hard on the plans, and we’re all excited to see it come together.  Now to see who is coming.  We will be posting a list of attendees as we receive checks.  Check back and see who’s coming, and talk your friends into coming.

We have made arrangements for hotel rooms in 2 different venues, the DeLaMar and the Sheraton in Stamford.

We have reserved 20 rooms at the Sheraton at 700 East Main Street in Stamford for $99 a night.  They have set up a website to make room reservations for that weekend.   You can click on the link to our personal website Greenwich High School Class of 1964 Reunion.  You can make, change or cancel reservations for the reunion weekend on this site.

The DeLaMar has also given us a discount on rooms.  Their rates for the weekend are:

  •            Deluxe Town View Room: $245.00, Reduced from their full published rate of $400.00
  •            Deluxe Harbor View Room: $295.00, Reduced from their full published rate of $500.00
  •            Deluxe Double Double Room: $295.00, Reduced from their full published rate of $500.00
  •            Harbor View Suite: $695.00, Reduced from their full published rate of $950.00

Guestroom rates are subject to a 15% occupancy and sales tax, and a $15.00 service charge per room, per night. The service charge covers all gratuities for housekeeping staff, bellman and valet attendants.

The room rate for the DeLaMar includes:

  • Complimentary glass of Champagne on arrival
    Morning Site-Seeing Cruise on the Harbor (Saturday & Sunday, weather permitting)
    Complimentary Valet Parking for all guests
    Complimentary continental breakfast served in our Lobby
    Complimentary Wine &Cheese Reception (Friday & Saturday evenings)
    Coffees, Cappuccino and Espresso served daily in our Library
    Daily newspaper delivery
    Access to our fitness facilities

You would need to call the DeLaMar directly to book rooms there.  Their number is:  203-661-9800.  Be sure to tell them you are booking a room for the GHS Class of 64 Reunion to be held there that weekend.

Plans for the Reunion weekend are finally shaping up.  We have decided on the locations for both Friday and Saturday nights.

Friday night, May 30, 2014, will be an informal evening at Zody’s 19th Hole at Brennan (formerly Hubbard Heights) Municipal Golf Course in Stamford.  The time is 6 to 10 pm.  There will be beer, wine and sodas included, as well as enough hors d’oeuvres to pass as dinner, and a cash bar for those who wish it.   We had lunch there this week, and the food was good, the room pleasant, and the price right.  It was, once we saw it, an easy choice.  It will be a good way to relax after a day of travel, or just start the weekend with an evening with old friends.  The price for beer, wine, hors d’oeuvres for the evening will be $30 per person.

Saturday night, May 31, will be a buffet dinner from 6:30 to 10:30.  We have chosen the DeLaMar, formerly the Showboat, the same site as our 30th reunion, but thoroughly renovated.  We will still have the view, the waterfront,  good food, and, most of all, good company.  The price is a good one compared to the other venues we looked at.  Dinner will be a buffet, with a cash bar.  The menu is still to be determined, but we wanted to lock in the venue now.  The price for the evening will be $130 per person if you send reservations in before April 15, 2014.  After that date, it will be $145 per person.

We will set up a way to sign up online, and then mail a check to our treasurer.  We really need to get an idea of how many people will attend!  For now, send me an email and let me know if you’re seriously interested, sort of interested, or would rather not come.  We would love to see as many classmates attend as possible.  We haven’t done this for 20 years — come check out the guy/girl you had a crush on — see how well we’ve all aged, just like fine wines and cheeses — not that any of us look more than a week older than we did in 1964!  Come listen to music of our youth, chat with old friends and catch up with our classmates.

We have a couple of ideas centered around the “Who are they now?” idea.  We’d like to pair a current headshot (or something that we can crop to a head and shoulders shot) of you now with the picture from the yearbook. It might be an informal contest or a gallery of pictures or maybe something else; but we need current photos of YOU!

You can email the photos or a link to an online photo to and we’ll take it from there. Be sure to include your name and current location so we can pair you up with the right yearbook photo.

Thanks for participating! It should be a lot of fun.
