Mr. Caterson's 8th Grade Homeroom
I was in 8th Grade at Main St School during the 1963/1964 school year. It was during our weekly homeroom spelling test on Friday , November 22, 1963, that Mr. Caterson told us that JFK had been shot (death had not yet been confirmed). A girl named Aura Showah, last on right in bottom row, was instrumental in telling me about the pending arrival of The Beatles in February 1964. Yours truly is pictured second from the right in the second row from the top. Main St School, which had originally been Danbury High School, later became the site of the Danbury Police headquarters, the target of a bomb threat used as a diversion for a downtown bank heist in 1970.

I have a picture just like this hanging on my fridge right now. Only it is from 1962. I amazed myself last week in remembering almost 90% of the kids names. Pretty shocking considering I am 63 this year.
