WELCOME TO THE Y’S MEN OF WESTPORT/WESTON
Welcome to the largest and most dynamic semi-retired and retired men’s organization in Fairfield County, if not the State of Connecticut! There are over 450 members of the Y’s Men of Westport/Weston, all sharing the common desire of a continued life of fun fulfillment and contribution with friends.
The motto of the Y’s Men is “Enlightenment, Fellowship, Community Service.” Enlightenment is achieved through attending the Thursday meetings, hearing outstanding speakers, participating in such activities as the International Discussion Group, the Investment Club, The Macintosh Round Table, various tutorials, and taking any number of cultural day trips. Fellowship is enjoyed at monthly dinners at different restaurants, our annual holiday party, weekly summer evening picnics at Compo Beach, singing with The Hoot Owls, hiking, boating, golfing, bowling, skiing, playing bridge, tennis, ping pong plus participating in the many extra “trips and events.” Community service ranges from Meals on Wheels to delivering food to Westport community centers, assisting with community clean-up programs, driving the elderly to doctor appointments, volunteering at the annual Library Book Sale, student mentoring and many more by-request activities.
In order to maximize your experience with the Y’s Men, I recommend these initial actions:
As a fairly new member said to me during a hiking outing a couple of months ago, “ I had an enjoyable and successful career, but you know, I am having the time of my life now!”
I hope that you enjoy the same experience with the Y’s Men.
All the Best
