The Ridgefield Men’s Club (RMC), founded in 1984, is a group of retired or near-retired men from varied careers in business and the professions. It meets at 10:00 on the first and third Wednesday mornings of each month at Lund Hall in the First Congregational Church of Ridgefield, 103 Main Street, Ridgefield, CT. Its purpose is to provide and promote fellowship. The Club offers activities in a dozen or more groups such as biking, bridge, computer, golf, financial, fishing, gourmet luncheon/dinner groups, and hiking, none of which requires any degree of expertise other than interest.
There are four traditional Club events each year involving all members and applicants: two Ladies Luncheons (one in early June and another in December, to which wives are the invited guests) and two Annual Picnics, (one in the summer and the second in September/October) .
The Club has established itself as a prime forum for speakers on both local and national issues and hosts candidates for public office, space scientists, and internationally noted celebrities such as Pulitzer Prize authors and foreign diplomats.
There are no required qualifications for membership other than residence in Ridgefield, timely payment of the annual dues which are currently $35, and attendance at a minimum of 8 meetings per year. The Club has a constitution and an operating format, with officers selected in June of each year. Club membership is limited to 150 to permit one-on-one fellowship interaction, and has full seating for all in our meeting room.
Beginning in April 2012 all new candidates will include a payment of $25 as an enrollment fee. This is to confirm interest and intent in the RMC. All checks should be made out to RMC and be included with the application. Mail it to the address at the top of the form which is 54 Danbury Road, #216, Ridgefield, CT 06877.
Aside from the voluntary activity groups, the Club essentially functions as a place for members to maintain old friendships and make new ones, to enjoy a cup of coffee on meeting days, to hear a good speaker, and to plan activities together. We welcome your interest in our Club.
