What does the Darien Community Association Thrift Shop have to do with the London Olympics? Quite a bit, if you’re Brenda Crane, one of the thrift shop’s volunteers. Her son Rob Crane, who first learned to sail at the Noroton Yacht Club, is now competing in the men’s laser event of the 2012 London Olympics. Thrift shop volunteers have now decorated the shop window in Crane’s honor.
