Anticipation and excitement of Darien’s upcoming 200th anniversary celebration has jumped to a new level with an anonymous donation.
The 2020 Bicentennial Subcommittee of the Monuments & Ceremonies Commission has recently received an anonymous donation of $5,000.
This amount is in addition to the $5,000 that the town has already given the committee for the celebration.
“This generous donor realized that we’re going to be needing funds to really put on a great birthday celebration for the town,” said committee member Maggie McIntire, who is director of the Darien Historical Society. “This person was hoping this would be the first and encourage others to donate as well.”
