A Message from
Jack Couch, President

WELCOME! It has been my distinct honor and privilege to serve as president of the Norwalk Old Timers since 2015. 

 

The Norwalk Old Timers Awards Dinner evening has become a great tradition for the City of Norwalk. It reunites friends and honors those who have made significant contributions to the Norwalk sports scene. Each year we honor athletes who have distinguished themselves in sports and beyond.

The support of each of you who attend the dinner, purchase ads for the program book, and offer support in any way has enriched the City of Norwalk with this event and sustained the scholarship fund, which has grown to three annual scholarships each for Norwalk and Brien McMahon High Schools. 

 

I must thank our dedicated Old Timers executive committee, the members of which put in many hours of work all year, but especially in the months before the Awards Dinner in order to make it a very special evening indeed. Finally, we are grateful also to our many sponsors, patrons, and donors for their vital support.

Jack Couch
President
