The lights on the Christmas wreaths displayed in Darien on the Post Road and elsewhere are checked each year to make sure the bulbs are working properly by volunteers from the Darien Men’s Association.

“This year, 18 members showed up on November 9, 2017, at Town Hall and replaced 213 bulbs that were faulty on 92 wreaths,” reports Jack Fitzgibbons, DMA chairman of Community Services. “It’s something we do every year to help support the town.”

The wreaths are put up and paid for by the Darien Chamber of Commerce.

“They are hung on lampposts on the Post Road from Noroton Ave. to Sedgewick St.,” says DCC President Susan Cator.  “They also are displayed on Day St. and at Tilley Pond.”
