OG Westchester Weekly Speaker Program

The Old Guard of Westchester is a not-for-profit organization, with roots that go back to 1954.  Old Guard members are residents of Westchester County and neighboring communities.  We are retired or semi-retired men who had careers such as businessmen, lawyers, doctors, managers, financiers, writers, teachers, and communication specialists.

We meet every Tuesday at the Ethical Culture Society building in White Plains to socialize and listen to guest speakers on topics including local, regional and national social issues, economic and political topics, medicine and other science related subjects.

During the New York State on PAUSE time period, the Old Guard of Westchester will be conducting our weekly speaker session via Zoom Virtual Meetings. For information regarding attendance at a specific event, contact:  Stephen Loewengart --- (914) 761-3384
