Ronald Reagan in Waterbury, 1984
Were you in the crowd for President Ronald Reagan’s visit to Waterbury in 1984? I may have a photo of you!
September 19th, 1984. I played Alto Saxophone in the Holy Cross High School band. We were chosen to play “Hail To The Chief” for President Ronald Reagan’s visit to Waterbury! 30,000 people showed up to see him speak, and we were right next to the stage. I can still remember how to play it on my sax. Here are a few crowd shots and a couple of the side-stage views of President Reagan.
But my favorite pic from that day is this one. Going through the security checkpoint that morning, two agents took the earliest selfie known to man!
