Women’s Luncheons

DCA Women’s Luncheons are monthly social gatherings, for both women and men, offering various types of presenters, from authors, to those with poignant human interest stories, to specialists on travel, theater, gardening, entertaining, and home décor. Luncheons are held monthly from October to June, and are catered by Michael Joseph’s Catering.


 Upcoming Women’s Luncheons



“Our Stone Walls: The Great, The Good and The Truly Awful” featuring Sylvia Reiss

A local resident, stone wall enthusiast and historian, Sylvia Reiss will present a fascinating, educational and amusing look at these historical structures, which are the signature archaeological legacy of Darien and of New England itself. They can be seen along roadsides, far into the woods, across backyards and between houses. Who built these walls, and why? Sylvia will also offer a look at the contemporary structures that are being built around many new houses, and not just in Darien.

Sylvia Reiss is a former teacher, retired antiques dealer, past president of the Antiques Council, and tag-along historian with her husband Ken Reiss, who is the Darien Historical Society’s historian.

Men are welcome, too! Luncheon will be provided by Michael Joseph’s Catering.

Tuesday, March 6 
12:15pm – 2:00pm

DCA members $20 / public $25
Prepayment is required by noon on Monday, March 5.
