Darien TV79 has a new, improved look thanks to a generous donation from the Darien Foundation. — an announcement from Darien TV79

The Darien Foundation’s $25,000 grant was used this summer to install new high-definition TV cameras and switching equipment for TV79’s airing of meetings in Room 206 of Town Hall. The grant also covered the cost of new wiring, monitors and associated gear in a project that lasted several months, though meeting coverage continued without interruption. “We are so pleased to be able to support the continuing work of Darien TV79 in bringing Town government to Darien residents,” said Darien Foundation Executive Director Sarah Woodberry. “Darien has much to be proud of in the transparency of its government thanks to Darien TV79’s efforts and The Darien Foundation is happy to contribute to the operation”.
