Marching in the Danbury Memorial Day Parade 
Monday May 30th @ 8:30 am
During our Centennial Year!

Club and Ladies Auxiliary Members, 
and Extended Members of the Middle Eastern Community are welcome to participate
The 8th Annual Memorial Day Parade will take place on Monday, May 30 in downtown Danbury. Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day held on the last Monday in May, is a day of remembering the men and women that died while serving in the USA Armed Forces. We encourage all members, families and friends to come and proudly represent the club and our ethnic community and respectfully honor those that have given their life for our country.

We will assemble at the Club around 8:00 am to enjoy some light breakfast fare and then proceed over to the parade route that begins on Kennedy Avenue. The parade ends at Rogers Park. It is a great time and a fun way to get some exercise walking; or riding in one of cars.

May God Bless America and let’s have a great turn out for the parade!

Annual Scholarship Award Dinner - Thurs. June 9, 2022




 The Club is pleased to announce the 48th Annual Scholarship Award formal Dinner that will be held on Thursday June 9th at the Amber Room in Danbury.  Eligible candidates, will be recognized and be awarded scholarship Awards.   For Applications, Eligibility, Reservations, and for more details on how to contribute,  please visit the Scholarship page.


Next LAC Sponsored Blood Drive is at St. Anthony Maronite Catholic Church, Sat. July 16

To sign up, please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit RedCrossBlood.org and enter: LACD to schedule an appointment at St,. Anthony Church. Those who donated at St. Ann Church Drive on May 21, would be eligible to donate at Anthony's church on July 16. We had several first timers as well. I believe you would agree saving 3 lives on average per donation is worth going through the process to determine if you could donate. Thank you again for all those who last donated blood at St. Ann's, and  and hope that you would consider signing up for our next drive.
