The City of West Haven Centennial Celebration Committee has launched a Facebook page to mark and promote the community’s 100th anniversary this year, Mayor Nancy R. Rossi announced.
The newly published page, called “City of West Haven Centennial Celebration – 1921-2021,” is the centennial’s official Facebook page. It is administered by the city and edited by Dan Shine, one of the foremost authorities on West Haven history.
The committee is planning a series of commemorative events, starting in late June, to observe the 1921 birth of Connecticut’s youngest town, said Rossi, the honorary chairwoman.
In the coming weeks and months, Shine and other notable authors will post a wide range of articles and photos on the page to celebrate historical events, people and places in West Haven from the past 100 years. Other posts will include announcements of centennial fundraisers and festivities.

As part of the community’s 100th anniversary festivities later this year, the City of West Haven Centennial Celebration Committee is honoring residents 100 and older and is looking for centenarians to recognize.
