Greenwich Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that its Women Who Matter featured speaker this year is Joan Lunden.
Joan will present at a Luncheon being held at Greenwich Country Club on Friday, April 3 from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm.
An award-winning journalist, prolific best-selling author, motivational speaker and women’s health and wellness advocate, Lunden has been a trusted voice in American home for over 30 years.
“As it happened, in my 50s I was changing my twins’ diapers at the same time as I was managing the care of my aging mother.
My life was controlled bedlam at times (it still is sometimes!) and it’s not really where I expected to be, yet that was my life and I was loving every minute of it.
It baffled me to think that I was picking out strollers—make that double strollers, for Max, Kate, Kim and Jack—while I was also buying cars for my teenage girls James, Lindsay and Sarah, and a wheelchair for my mom, Grady.” – Joan Lunden
The above is a fascinating excerpt from Joan Lunden’s new book, “Why Did I Come Into This Room? A Candid Conversation About Aging.”
The April 3 event is designed to celebrate women who make a difference and have a real impact on the Greenwich community and beyond.
The Chamber’s Women Who Matter Luncheon celebrates women who make a difference and who have a real impact on our community and beyond. Be prepared to hear how Lunden is undertaking the challenge of aging with humor and resilience. Everyone who attends will receive a copy of her newly released book.
