OG Westchester Weekly Speaker Program

Tuesday, June 22, 2021  11:00am  12:00pm


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.

Normally 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 current pandemic our meetings, including our programs, have been conducted on ZOOM Virtual Meetings.  For information regarding attendance at a specific event, contact:  Stephen Loewengart --- (914) 761-3384
