There’s a new page on the town website.
The go-to place for information about the 50th anniverary of Westport’s purchase of Longshore, it takes some drilling to get to — or just click here.
The site includes information on the 169-acre park, and the year-long celebration that begins soon. There is a donation form to help defray expenses.
Contact info is also available for anyone wishing to contribute memories, photos, movies or other memorabilia.
The calendar of events includes upcoming Westport Historical Society and Westport Public Library Longshore exhibitions; the Rotary Club’s golf and tennis outing honoring Herb Baldwin, the former first selectman and key mover in the 1960 purchase; and Longshore Sailing School’s own 50-year reunion.
If that doesn’t wet whet your appetite, the 50th anniversary committee meets tomorrow (Thursday, April 8, 7 p.m., Town Hall Room 201). The public is invited to attend.
