News Briefs: Screening of “Haze” at the library, Speaker to discuss diving with Jacques Cousteau
‘Haze’ at library
DARIEN — The Darien Library will host a screening of “Haze” on Monday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Community Room.
In September 2004, fraternity pledge Gordie Bailey died from alcohol poisoning after passing out on a couch in his fraternity house following a hazing initiation at the University of Colorado.
In 2008, the Gordie Foundation produced “Haze,” a documentary telling his story and discussing the issues surrounding college drinking and hazing. The program is for parents and mature high school-age students.
A panel discussion will follow. Panelists include Officer Bryan Wallman, Darien High School student resource officer; Dr. Frank Bartolomeo, of the Southfield Center for Development, and a guest in long-term recovery.
