A very large number of freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors at Ridgefield High School began serving after-school detention to make up for the seven periods of school they missed during an organized truancy wave, the April 5, 1962 Press reported.
On March 30 both boys and girls staged a protest and refused to attend classes because about 150 other students had been allowed to leave school early that day to go to New York City to attend a performance of “La Traviata” at the Metropolitan Opera House.
Charles D. Crouchley, assistant principal, said that most of the truants had gone to the bowling alleys in Danbury and Brewster, N.Y. [At the time the Brewster bowling alleys were well known by Ridgefield High School students as a place where teens could buy pitchers of beer with the poorest-contrived IDs stating they were 18 years of age — the drinking age back then in New York.]
The Ridgefield members of the hod-carriers and laborers union stopped work in protest against the new three-year contract proposed by the Ridgefield dirt contractors. the union voted unanimously to strike at its meeting in the Italian American Mutual Aid Society Hall. it was holding out for a “20-20-20 package,” which meant that 20 cents an hour would be added to their pay rate immediately and again in 1963 and 1964.
The Ridgefield laborers then received $2.90 per hour. the contractors had offered a 20-10-10 package, which meant rates of $3.10, $3.20 and $3.30 per hour for the next three years. the contractors reportedly also offered a pension plan by which money would be withheld from the laborers’ weekly paychecks; however, the union spokesman said, “The boys don’t want a pension plan for a few years, till they’re a little older. they want money in the envelope.”
The Ridgefield Contractors Association met at the Elms Inn and elected Joseph Bacchiochi as its new president. Edward Munkoff was elected vice president; Fred Cogswell, secretary; and Ferdinand Bedini was chosen as treasurer.
Southern New England Telephone distributed new phone directories deleting the old two-letter and five-number format and substituted the new seven-digit telephone numbers. in Ridgefield the old IDlewood 8-1234 became 438-1234. Keeping up to date, the school system dropped its switchboard system where a live person answered and asked to whom you wished to speak. instead the directories gave out direct dialing numbers.
James Belote and Steve Johnson headed the Teenage Canteen’s annual fund-raising drive. the canteen planned to conduct a house-to-house canvass, dividing the town into 12 districts to raise the 1962-63 goal of $2,500.
The Ridgefield Playhouse on Prospect Street featured Rock Hudson, Doris Day, Tony Randall and Edie Adams in Lover come Back.
Eleven of the remaining 20 members of the Last Man’s Club (World War I veterans) of the Ridgefield American Legion Hall attended the annual meeting at the Hayloft Restaurant. the members had taken an oath to meet annually on March 16 “until the last man dies.” Toasts were drunk to the six deceased members of the club: Ernest Brunetti, Sereno Jacob, Joseph Mazzi, William Johnson, George Bloomer and Robert R. Keeler.
Boy Scout Troop 47, sponsored by the Lions Club, held its Father and Son Banquet. Service stars were given to David Livingston (four years); Randy Rowe and Glenn Moore (three years); Rob Kinnaird and Dennis Pontanella (two years).
Mr. and mrs. John Tulipani of Ivy Hill Road announced the birth of their eighth child and sixth daughter, Diane.
Robert E. McDonald, a fourth grade teacher at Veterans Park School, was featured in the Press as the “Teacher of the Week.” the McDonalds and their three children then lived on Aspen Ledges Road. mr. McDonald’s interests were gardening and athletics. one of mr. McDonald’s sons, Tom, now a member of the FBI, was honored by the Ridgefield Old Timers at last year annual dinner with its Sports Award.
