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

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