Message from the President

Welcome to Summer!

As we take a break from our League activities I’d like to recap our 2013-14 calendar. Our public forums included a documentary screening of “Shored Up” on Global Warming and coastal development, a well attended (more than 100 participants) book talk featuring author Jeff Greenfield “If Kennedy Lived” and a very informative session on the MORE (Municipal Opportunity and Regional Efficiencies) Commission. Combined with our on-going Voter Services activities including Candidates Night, a special candidates’ forum for the contested Board of Education race, publication of our Voters Guide, Government Guide contact list and an updated “You and Your Town Government”, it has indeed been a very busy year.

None of this would have been possible without the combined efforts of our entire Board and the support of our general membership and Finance Drive contributors.

Please take a minute and scroll down to review the many activities and opportunities our members have to get involved with the League. “Food For Thought” is our very popular and lively monthly discussion group and the holiday party is not to be missed! New in 2013-14, at each monthly meeting we feature a town official or active volunteer discussing their area of interest, priorities and activities, providing a great chance to learn more about what’s happening in town.

We sponsor many public forums but also offer member and guest only events, which usually provide the opportunity to interact with our local, state and national elected officials in a small informal group setting.

In short – there’s hopefully a little bit of something for everyone.
So please, JOIN US. Our membership link is at the top of this webpage.

Our next monthly meeting is Wed Sept 3rd, 9:10 AM Coffee and Conversation followed by 9:30 AM general meeting open to all members. We meet at the Darien Historical Society, 45 Old Kings Highway North in the lower level conference room. Hope to see you there.

President – LWV of Darien
