WESTPORT-What started out as a reunion to celebrate the classes of the 1970s has turned into an all-classes event in Westport.
The Westport Central School Class Reunion for graduates from any year will take place on Friday, July 22 through Saturday, July 23.
"It started out as a 70s class reunion because the class of 1976 was planning a reunion for its 35th anniversary," Cheley McNeeley, a Westport alumni, said. "We have tagged it as a Welcome Home to Westport and we have about 70 people who are committed to coming."
Events will include a beach mixer at Lee Park on Friday, July 22 starting at 6 p.m.
"We are hopeful that there will be some land to hold the mixer on," McNeeley said, referencing the recent flooding at the Park and in town.
The main reunion will be held on Saturday, July 23, with a buffet dinner with live music at the Westport Country Club, starting at 6 p.m. and running through midnight.
There will also be a golf outing on July 23, with tee times starting at 9 a.m. Cost is $35 perr player.
"We are also looking at some other events through the weekend and on Sunday," McNeeley said. "We really want to give anyone who comes a full weekend of activities."
