WESTPORT, Conn. – The Westport Weston Family Y has planned a 90th birthday party next month to celebrate its 90 years of service to the community.

The birthday party is scheduled for Sept. 18 and will shut down Church Lane for special activities throughout the day for Y members, supporters and the public.

Founded by Edward Bedford, a Westport businessman and philanthropist, the Family Y opened Sept. 5, 1923. The Family Y is at 59 Post Road E., Westport, but construction on a new location began earlier this year.

The event’s celebrations include the following itinerary for Sept. 18:

  • 4-6 p.m. – Church Lane will be closed for a range of family activities, like special performances by Y gymnasts, a bounce house and other games for young children, music, food vendors, a display of vintage cars and a pep rally for the Water Rat Swim Team.
  • 5:30 p.m. – Cake and a group sing-along of “Happy Birthday, Family Y” will be held on Church Lane. Local volunteer leaders will make a special announcement about the new Y.
