GENERAL INFORMATION

 

The Y's Men of Westport/Weston, an organization of about 400 retired and semi-retired men, is the largest group of its kind in Fairfield County. Members are from diverse professional backgrounds including executives from major corporations; businessmen; advertising, public relations, marketing and media executives; physicians; computer experts; airline pilots; government officials; artists; and musicians.

Every week, on Thursday at 10 am from September through May, members can attend a meeting at the Saugatuck Congregational Church and hear prominent individuals share their experiences. The speakers include national and state legislators, historians, authors, financial experts, film makers and legal and medical professionals.

The Y's Men participate in a wide variety of activities (more than 27 in all) such as golf, bowling, photography, tennis, skiing, bridge, chess, singing, investments, sailing, hiking, and table tennis. Organized trips have taken groups throughout the United States and Europe. In the recent past, dozens of Y’s Men with their spouses or significant others have enjoyed cruises, concerts, plays, musicals and dinners.

The Y's Men also provide volunteers for numerous community programs such as providing transportation to medical services for the frail and elderly, delivering Meals on Wheels to the needy, assisting at Norwalk Hospital and providing manpower at parades, foot races, and other Westport and Weston events.

Any retired or semi-retired man in Westport or Weston is invited to join. For more information contact our Membership Chairman or the Y's Men's President whose contact information is found on the Organization page.
