Reminder: “06880” Beach Party Is Next Thursday!

The 3rd annual “06880″ party is just a week away.

And if you’re reading this, you’re invited.

Thursday, July 16 (6 p.m.) is the day and time. The far end of Compo’s South Beach — away from the cannons, near the boat and kayak launch, the best place to watch the sunset — is the place. (Still confused? See the aerial view below.)

Every member of the “06880″ (as in, this website) community is invited. We welcome frequent commenters and lurkers. Folks who have lived here all their lives, and those who moved here yesterday. Even those who want beach parking to remain as is, and those who hope it doesn’t. (But let’s make this party a beach-comment-free zone.)

The tagline for “06880″ is “Where Westport meets the world.” Next Thursday, that world comes to Compo.

Bring your own food, beverages, beach chairs and blankets. Then mix, mingle and enjoy the evening with the “06880″ crowd.

There’s no charge. It’s a “fun-raiser,” not a fundraiser.

See you next Thursday!

    Dan, can a non-Westport resident park at Compo for this event?

    • Sorry, no (unless you pay for the day). However, next week I’ll put up a post where people can ask for or offer rides.

    Wish I could be there. Love your blog, David

  5. Great news! Just bought my airline ticket!
    KIDDING! (why would I arrange my own firing squad?!)

    Have a lovely evening on the unparalleled Compo Beach… I swear that I can smell that salty Atlantic air from here! Cheers.

    I’ll be doing a drive by and wave. (p.s. Mrs. Hunter you’re not that bad…everyone has a right to agree to disagree. Just everyone needs to play/type nice)

    Will try to come for a few minutes, but I’ve got to drive my daughter to JFK that evening. Thursday is looking pretty good, weather-wise, and I’m sure it will be a fun event.
