Senior Summit

Our church (The First Congregational Church of Darien) is starting a "buddy list" for seniors, so that we can help each other in times of need and just sort of keep tabs on each other.


The Community Fund of Darien is going to hold a Senior Summit on September 28. The idea is to get all the agencies and for-profits who serve seniors in our area together. We'll discuss what we all do and discover where we have gaps in service. We'll explore needs, too.

Contact the Community Fund of Darien, if you want to come.
