From the Bridgeport Public Library:
Do you remember Pleasure Beach? Dancing at the Ritz Ball room? Did your mother or father go to work every day at one of the local factories like Bullard’s, Warner’s, or the Bridgeport Brass? Do you remember the Christmas lights of Downtown Bridgeport? The busy shopping on Main Street? Sitting at the counter at Woolworth’s and having a grilled cheese? Where did you buy your records?
Good Bridgeport memories need to be shared! 1980? 1950s? 1920? It’s all good!
The first meeting (Saturday) of the Bridgeport “Back in the Day” Club will meet on the third floor of the Bridgeport Public Library’s Bridgeport History Center.
Our first guest speaker is Bill Menosky who will give a short talk about the Remington Arms Company on Boston Avenue.
Discussion will then be open for “Back in the Day” Bridgeport Memories and other stories about Bridgeport.
Come share your memories! Bring your memorabilia to show!
The first meeting of the Bridgeport “Back in the Day” Nostalgia Club is:
Saturday, October 20th, 2:00 p.m. to 3:30, Third floor Bridgeport History Center, Bridgeport Public Library, 925 Broad Street 203 576-7417 … Mary K. Witkowski
