Darien's Hamlethub By DCA
Thirty-three Darien residents were honored for their contributions in and around the town at The Community Fund of Darien’s 43rd Annual Volunteer celebration, held on April 21st at the DCA.
Janet King, TCF’s Executive Director, welcomed the more than 140 guests and Darien’s First Selectman Monica McNally recognized the honorees with a proclamation to signal the importance of volunteering. Ned Saunders of Brown, Stevens, Harris, and Kristina Gregory of Cross Private Insurance then presented each of the “unsung heroes” and their accomplishments to the audience. Friends and family enjoyed the post-ceremony reception with light fare provided by Carolyn’s Absolutely Fabulous Events.
“TCF’s volunteer celebration is my favorite night of the year!” enthused King. “We were so excited to invite the entire town to come out and publicly acknowledge these amazing Darien residents who donate their considerable skills to benefit our local community.”
Since 1979, The Community Fund of Darien has recognized more than 600 Darien residents who selflessly give of their time and talent.
