To the editor:

On Friday, September 20, over 150 people enjoyed the hospitality of the YMCA at the 9th Annual Family Day Dinner, sponsored by the Darien YMCA, the Thriving Youth Task Force (a subcommittee of The Community Fund of Darien) and the Darien Youth Commission. Family Day is a national movement that reminds parents that the engagement fostered during frequent family dinners is an effective tool to help keep America’s kids substance free. Family meals are the perfect time to talk to your kids and to listen to what’s on their mind.  The more often kids eat dinner with their families; the less likely they are to engage in risky behaviors. Dinner Makes A Difference! Thanks to Heights Pizza, for providing a delicious dinner.  And thanks as well to the members of The Community Fund’s YAT (Youth Asset Team), SADD, the YMCA staff, students from the Depot and the Darien Youth Commission for offering their hands-on support at this event.
