WBT Owners Bill & VonAnn Stutler celebrated their 50th Anniversary last month! They met while college students at Michigan State. Bill was a Drum Major in the marching band. VonAnn took to coming to watch the band rehearsals since it was just outside her dorm. One thing led to another... and Bill Proposed... just in time to stop Von Ann from marrying a very persistent policeman! They were married on a Friday Night in 1962... it was St. Patrick's Day, and the only night they could secure the church for the wedding! They lived in Chicago until their move to New York in 1966. Then they had homes, over the years, in Ossining, Thornwood, Croton-on-Hudson, and presently in their lovely home on Candlewood Lake in New Milford, CT. They raised five children and have seven grandchildren! On July 9, 1974, they opened the doors to "An Evening Dinner Theatre". They have worked closely together ever since to keep theatre alive and thriving in Westchester. One of their secrets to a long and happy marriage, is to have special time alone together. Since the 80's they plan a yearly getaway to the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. Congratulations!!!
