Celebrate Summer Reading with bestselling author Fiona Davis as she transports you to another time and place during a discussion of her new blockbuster novel The Chelsea Girls. The event will take place on Thursday, August 8 at 7 p.m. in the Louise Parker Berry Community Room. Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Barrett Bookstore. Refreshments will be served.

Spanning from the 1940s to the 1960s, The Chelsea Girls deftly pulls back the curtain on the desperate political pressures of McCarthyism, the complicated bonds of female friendship, and the siren call of the uninhibited Chelsea Hotel.

About the Author

Fiona Davis began her career in New York City as an actress, where she worked on Broadway, off-Broadway, and in regional theater. After getting a master's degree at Columbia Journalism School, she fell in love with writing, leapfrogging from editor to freelance journalist before finally settling down as an author of historical fiction. Fiona's books have been translated into more than a dozen languages. She's a graduate of the College of William & Mary and is based in New York City.

Darien Launches New Website and Social Media for 2020 Bicentennial https://news.hamlethub.com/darien/life/47082-darien-launches-new-website-and-social-media-for-2020-bicentennial47082-darien-launches-new-website-and-social-media-for-2020-bicentennial https://news.hamlethub.com/darien/life/47082-darien-launches-new-website-and-social-media-for-2020-bicentennial47082-darien-launches-new-website-and-social-media-for-2020-bicentennial

Bicentennial Buzz: Happy Birthday Darien!

The buzz around Darien’s 200th birthday celebrations just got another boost with a new website and social media platforms to update the community about events and plans to celebrate the town’s birthday in 2020.

Information on Bicentennial events and projects is now available at www.darienct.gov/2020 and social media posts can be found by searching “@DarienCT200” on Instagram and Twitter, or “DarienCT200” on Facebook.

”We are eager to share the news about plans for 2020 and we encourage residents to visit these online community forums often for updates on the celebrations and to find out ways to get involved,” said First Selectman Jayme Stevenson.

The webpage contains the bicentennial logo (and guidelines for its use), the town’s 2020 mission statement, a list of the 2020 Bicentennial Committee members and the dates of the official Bicentennial events. Soon, the webpage will also include links to social media, a 2020 event calendar and information on sponsorship opportunities.

The town’s official 2020 Bicentennial Logo was designed by Darien High School students Charlie Callery, Will Henry Harmon and Kelly Niederreither, a project spearheaded by Sarah Lexow Keena, the 2020 Bicentennial Committee’s Youth Liaison. The logo will appear on all official town 2020 correspondence and its official merchandise. The logo will also be offered to any town non-profit organization that is holding a special celebration to mark the bicentennial, and to official sponsors of the town’s 2020 celebrations. More information on guidelines for the use of the Bicentennial Logo is available at www.darienct.gov/2020.

“We are hoping that residents share the bicentennial logo and posts with family and friends to encourage participation and raise awareness about what is sure to be a memorable commemorative year,” said Alan J. Miller, chairman of the town’s 2020 Bicentennial Subcommittee.

Dates and venues have been finalized for the 2020 events (see the full listing of the planned 2020 events below) and projects include a historical marker project and a town-wide mailing to inform residents about the events.

To participate, volunteer or donate visit www.darienct.gov/2020 or email info.darien2020@gmail.com.

The Community Fund of Darien hosted its annual Grants Award breakfast on July 11th for local nonprofit leaders and Community Fund grant review volunteers at the Darien Community Association. Thanks to the generous support of local donors, this year The Community Fund (TCF) is awarding $537,000 in large grants to 22 local nonprofit organizations. In addition, over $30,000 was previously allocated this year in small grants and grants awarded by the Youth Community Fund high school service group. 

To qualify for a grant, local non-profit organizations, who are invited to apply, must first submit detailed grant applications.  A TCF grant review panel comprised of more than 60 Darien volunteers then reviews the applications and performs a site visit at each organization before presenting funding recommendations, ensuring that donors’ contributions are responsibly invested for the greatest effectiveness and impact. 

Large grants were awarded to the following agencies:  Abilis, AmeriCares Free Clinics, Building One Community, Carver Center, Child Guidance Center of Mid-Fairfield County, Child Guidance Center of So. CT, Children’s Learning Centers,  Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Domus, ElderHouse, Family & Children’s Agency, Family Centers, Inspirica, Kids in Crisis, Laurel House, Liberation Programs, New Covenant Center, Open Doors, Pacific House, Person-to-Person, Rowan Center, STAR, Lighting the Way.  

In addition to large grants, $21,500 in small grants were given to seven local organizations (CT Food Bank, Filling in the Blanks, Future Five, Human Service Council, Stamford Public Education Fund, At Home Darien and Stamford Cradle to Career.)  $10,000 in Touch-a-Life funds is also reserved for Darien residents who have emergency needs. 

Through its Youth Community Fund, TCF empowers high school students to learn the value of philanthropy through volunteering with local nonprofit organizations and conduct their own youth grant review that allocated over $10,000 this year.  Recent grants have funded summer camp scholarships, after-school youth programs, food pantries and employment programs.. TCF’s Middle School student group, Youth Give Back, also visits local nonprofits to learn about human service needs.

For 68 years, The Community Fund of Darien’s intelligent philanthropy has addressed the needs of the most vulnerable in our community by investing in critical and effective programs in Darien, Stamford and Norwalk.  Funding goals focus on basic needs (food, housing, and emergency financial assistance), youth success, and self-sufficiency. In addition to grants, The Community Fund is the convener of local community initiatives such as the Thriving Youth Task Force which promotes positive youth development. Likewise, the Human Service Planning Council brings together nonprofit, governmental, and education leaders to discuss and develop plans to address social service needs in Darien. The Community Fund of Darien created the 06820/Our Darien campaign which addresses teen binge drinking. In addition, TCF organizes a group of high school students to address substance abuse and mental health by encouraging healthy choices

The Community Fund of Darien’s mission is made possible with the help of over 800 individual and local business donors and 100 volunteers who contribute to make a difference in our community.

Hunger Takes No Summer Break https://news.hamlethub.com/darien/charities/47073-hunger-takes-no-summer-break47073-hunger-takes-no-summer-break https://news.hamlethub.com/darien/charities/47073-hunger-takes-no-summer-break47073-hunger-takes-no-summer-break

Summer means a break from school, but for kids who rely on school meals, it can be difficult to get enough food to eat during the summer months. Our Lady of Grace Preschool and Kindergarten of Stamford joined forces with their community partners at Stamford EMS to collect perishable and non-perishable groceries for families in need.

Over a 3 week period, over one ton of food and drinks were collected by the school’s families and donated to the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County in three separate donations. The third delivery arrived by ambulance yesterday, courtesy of Stamford EMS.

“A donation at this time of year means a lot,” said the Food Bank’s Executive Director, Kate Lombardo. “Many children who can no longer access free breakfast and lunches at school are at home during the summer and unable to get to feeding sites. This donation means we can keep them food secure.”

The Food Bank of Fairfield County estimates that it distributes food to 1,500 food insecure families throughout our region, including those in Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, New Canaan, Norwalk and Wilton. More donations are needed at this time of year, as people often think to only donate around the year-end holidays.

“This was an important learning opportunity,” said Francine Manfredi, who volunteers at the school in addition to being a volunteer EMT for Stamford EMS. “Teaching kids the value of helping others is instrumental in instilling values such as kindness, compassion and empathy. It’s a win-win all around.”

The Food Bank of Fairfield County is one of lower Fairfield County’s primary hunger-relief organizations. To inquire about making a donation, call (203) 358-8898.

Darien Police report that on July 11th, 2019 at approximately 8:50 am, a 14 year old male was riding his bicycle on Old Kings Highway South near the intersection of Locust Hill Road. "As the juvenile traveled on Old Kings Highway South towards Locust Hill Road, he crossed from the West side of the street to the East side as he approached the intersection of Locust Hill Road. At the same time, a vehicle traveling West on Locust Hill Road turned right onto Old Kings Highway South. As it negotiated the turn onto Old Kings Highway South, the vehicle struck the rear tire of the juvenile’s bicycle, knocking him to the ground," police say.

According to Darien Police, the vehicle did not stop, continuing North on Old Kings Highway South. The juvenile was taken to Stamford hospital where it was determined he suffered a broken bone and numerous abrasions.

The vehicle was described as a dark colored sedan/hatchback, possibly a BMW. No further information was available.

Darien Police are asking anyone that may have been in the area at the above date and time to contact us if they witnessed anything regarding this incident. Please call 203.662.5300 and reference case #2019-009140.
