Welcome to the Central High Class Of 1961 web site. Go Hilltoppers!



A new look for the site should make it easier for those of us using a tablet or smart phone to see the whole site on these smaller screens.  Please note the change in accessing pages which are now at the top of the screen as well as on the left.  I am still working on the Home Page, and will keep everyone updated as we go.  Let me know if you run into any problems.

If you have lost the password to  the site or have any questions regarding the use of the site, I am once again posting my contact information here on the Home Page.  Email:  gvmoreau6543@gmail, Phone:  845-453-3350, and, from Dec 1 to May 15, there is a second phone number:  912-574-7024.  You can always contact me here on the site, too, either by posting on my profile page or by using the link on the left side of the page:  Contact US. Even without a password, you should be able to click on the Contact Us link.

I have been thinking of ways to keep you all interested in the site during this relative downtime between the milestone dates and have come up with the following ideas: 

  • who were our favorite (or not so favorite) teachers and what happened to them.  They may have seemed ancient at the time, but some of them were not that much older than we were. Send me names!
  • What you wanted to be career wise and how that worked out;
  • Countries visited over the years and who has traveled the most;
  • Old newspaper articles from the Bridgeport Post and Telegram detailing what was newsworthy about our class;
  • Photos and articles about our sports teams;
  • Ideas for follow up that you suggest!

If you want to upload something to the site, you can use the very friendly directions on the site.  If you need my assistance, contact me and we will work out how to accomplish your goal.

Please keep sharing your life events, we love good news, but we will be there for you if you need us no matter what. And we all love photos:  children, grandchildren, pets, homes, vacations, whatever!  

Carl DeVellis shared a hint for enabling our mature eyes to see the faces in all the photos, and read the small print as well.  Hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the wheel on your mouse.  Works on a laptop or desktop computer.

This hint is from me:  you can also go the right top  of the page and click on the gear icon (looks like a circle with bumps.) Click on the word Zoom and choose a percentage to enlarge the page.  Use the mouse to scroll around the page if you don't have a touch screen.

Hi Classmates!

Rick Marchionni shared this link and it is a lot of fun.  I tried my birthday first and then moved on to the most popular songs at various points in my life.  Obviously, we won't remember the song from our own birth, but it made me think about my parents and the music they loved when I was a child.  ( For those of you concerned about computer bugs, viruses, and other intruders, I have three computers with a variety of protections and nothing bad showed up.  I trust that anyone who does detect a problem will let us know ASAP!)

Click on the link and follow the directions and enjoy!
