The story of how we met:
We met at the original snack bar at WCSU, which was then Danbury State Teacher’s College. Our first date was at McCarthy’s, a bar over the NY state line. They had great bands there. Many of the students from WestConn would go there because the drinking age in NY was still 18 at the time.
