STAMFORD — Rippowam High School is no longer in existence, but that’s not stopping the school’s class of 1979 from rejoining as a community.

On Saturday, Oct. 12, the class will gather for a 40th reunion at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel at 700 East Main Street. The event will run from 7 to 11 p.m.

Tickets are $79 and can be paid for online at the following website, where interested attendees can also find more information about discounted hotel rates:; 203-964-2265; @SophieCVaughan1
