First homecoming king turns 61

Wilton resident Doug Jones’s announcement gave the Wilton Kiwanis Club a good laugh during its Oct. 5 luncheon at WEPCO.

“I hate to say this, but I have a son who on Sunday turned 61 years old,” he said.

“You may remember him because he was Wilton’s first homecoming king.”

Jeff Jones, of Wilton High School’s 1973 class, was crowned homecoming king in the fall of 1972 alongside homecoming queen Maria Madsen.
