DARIEN, Conn. -- This year, Darien EMS-Post 53 is having its third annual "Home for the Holidays, Holiday Tablescapes" party in The Conservatory at Nielsen’s Florist. Please join members of Post 53 at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 12 and help raise money for this vital organization.

This nationally recognized organization relies on high school students and adult volunteers/advisers to provide emergency medical services to Darien. Some may be nervous at the thought of a teenager responding to an emergency call, but these young adults are different than most. They are state-certified EMTs who are trained to a standard of excellence with medical direction provided by Stamford Hospital.

This holiday party will feature designer holiday table ideas from Ed Lent, Nielsen’s own designers and tablescape winners from the Garden Club of Darien. There will be wine, hors d’oeuvres and a chance to start some holiday shopping. Tickets are $20 at the door but advanced $15 tickets will be available through a post member.

Ticket proceeds and 10 percent of all sales that day will go to Post 53. Darien EMS-Post 53 will be in attendance of course, passing hors d’oeuvres and chatting with guests. Please come in, get to know them and help celebrate this wonderful time of year.

For more information about Post 53, please visit “Home for the Holidays." Neilsen's Florist is at 1405 Post Road.
