Cruising, the Beatles, pizza, football games, Carrols hamburgers and the senior prom. Memories from 1966 are never far away for Cindi Baranowski Morrison and her friends. Morrison and pals — Carol Comenzo Collura, Lois Caracciolo Ferro and her husband, Richard Ferro, among them — will recall their high school days Oct. 22, when Linton High School’s Class of 1966 meets to celebrate its 45th class reunion.
Lois Caracciolo and Richard Ferro make a formal statement during the 1966 Linton High School Senior Prom. The high school sweethearts married in 1970. The Ferros and friends from Linton's Class of 1966 will hold their 45th anniversary reunion next month.
