Text Size

The Newtown High School Class of 1971 celebrated its milestone 50th reunion with a weekend full of events on October 15, 16, and 17.

Classmates Frank Pitrone, Paula Roman Todd, Jeanine “Nikki” Goodwin, and Traci Quintin were on the reunion committee.

“It’s hard to believe, but it’s been a half a century since the Greatest Class graduated from what was then a sparkling, brand-new Newtown High School,” Pitrone said.

The reunion festivities kicked off on Friday night with a casual get-together at the bar at the Heritage Hotel in Southbury.

The following day, the Class of 1971 had an evening gala event at the Heritage Hotel with a reception cocktail hour and dinner.

Then on Sunday, from 10:30 am to 1:30 pm, more than 40 people went to NewSylum Brewing Company at the Fairfield Hills Campus to enjoy an outdoor gathering with drinks, live music, and good company.
