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. Our programs are available to the public in person and via ZOOM Virtual Meetings.  For information regarding attendance at a specific event, and for ZOOM meeting information, please contact us via the following link Program Information

Extra Info    Is there such a thing as American cuisine? You know before seeing the menu that an Italian restaurant will have pasta, or that an Indian restaurant will feature curry. But an “American” restaurant could offer anything, from farm-to-table to fajitas. We’ll try to identify how American food took shape over the past two hundred years.
