WATERTOWN — The Watertown Foundation will host its 94th annual meeting and dinner on Wednesday, October 2 at the Watertown Golf Club, 246 Guernseytown Rd.

The foundation will honor former State Representative Brian Flaherty, R-68, for his commitment to the community. 

Mr. Flaherty served as a state representative from 1989 to 2003. During his time in Hartford he served for nine years as deputy house minority deader.

The Watertown Foundation was established in 1925 by local residents who wished to enhance the quality of life in their community through charity.

By combining their gifts and working together to invest their contributions and assess the community’s needs, the founding members began an extraordinary legacy that continues today.
