Central High School
Class Of 1961

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

 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

The photos from both 55th Reunion events are now on the site with links on the left side of this page.  I have also added a link from the 50th Reunion to the side bar so that they are more easily accessed.  Captions are gradually being added to the  photos.  The recent email that you received directed you incorrectly to the wrong section of the site.  Please use the links on the side bar to go to the right page. HR following the name of the link indicates photos taken by Helena Rotzal and the PS designates photos by Pat Slonina.  New Home Room Home photos need names attached to faces and there are several new pictures from our high school days, too.

Thanks to a generous donation from one of our classmates, we will now have this site until 2022!    The 60th Reunion will be here before we know it and we want to keep the lines of communication open. New members are always welcome.  If you know a classmate who has not yet joined, let them know how much fun it is to chat with old friends, and don't forget to keep your information updated. 

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: 

  • What happened to a favorite teacher - that person could still be around, even though we thought they were ancient back then, many of them were not that much older than we were;
  • 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!
