The Bridgeport Central High School class of 1961 will be gathering for its 70th Birthday Party (and 52nd graduation anniversary) on Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Mill River Country Club in Stratford.

The 70th Birthday Party organizers have spent the past year reaching out to the 525 members of the 1961 Central High graduating class.

The weekend will also include a pizza party, on Aug. 16, at Marisa’s Restaurant in Trumbull. There will be an informal breakfast on Aug. 18, at the Shelton Courtyard Marriott.

There’s still time for those that haven’t responded, or couldn’t be reached, to join classmates for the festivities, including high school memorabilia, a soloist and keyboard player, food and drink and sharing memories.

For more information, and the opportunity to sign up for the events, visit the Central High ’61 website, www.bridgeportcentral61.org. The registration deadline for all events is July 30.
