The City of West Haven Centennial Celebration Committee is launching a new series called #FunFactFriday to promote the community’s 100th anniversary this year.
Every Friday starting April 9, the committee will post tidbits celebrating historical events, people and places in West Haven from the past 100 years on its official Facebook page, City of West Haven Centennial Celebration – 1921-2021.
The page is administered by the city and edited by Dan Shine, one of the foremost authorities on West Haven history. Like the page on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/CityofWestHavenCentennial-CelebrationCommittee.
The historical facts are compiled from various West Haven Library references by staff members Taylor Cordova and Kiana Arevalo under the supervision of Executive Director Colleen Bailie.
The committee is planning a number of commemorative events, starting in late June, to observe the 1921 birth of Connecticut’s youngest town.
