Programs will be held virtually until it is safe to meet in a large group at Memorial Town Hall in Old Lyme.  Please return to this page for updates during the year as program topics are finalized. When we return to the Town Hall, our monthly DRGC meetings (unless noted), will begin with a social time from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m., with the program beginning at 7 PM.
