Darien seniors tour the holiday lights

In the holiday spirit, Aging in Place+Gallivant organized a special outing for seniors to view holiday lights and afterwards to enjoy coffee and dessert at a local diner.
The highlight of the evening was a visit to the waterfront home of billionaire hedge-fund manager Paul Tudor Jones in the Belle Haven section of Greenwich. His annual Christmas show featured thousands of synchronized lights and music.
The Gallivant handicapped accessible van and sedan allowed Darien seniors to join hundreds of other visitors who drove up in vehicles and tuned into a local radio station to watch the show play along with the music.
"The evening was very rewarding to the seniors who might not otherwise have had the opportunity to view holiday lights," said Gina Blum, executive director of Aging in Place+Gallivant. "It was a delightful event, and we plan to offer additional outings with transportation so that Darien seniors can connect with one another and continue to be independent and thriving members of our community."
