Town & Country’s Board of Directors and Executive Staff Members

Monday, September 21st, 2015

Town & Country's Board of Directors and executive staff members enjoyed a beautiful luncheon at Duryea’s Dock in Montauk at the Annual Fighting Chance Lobster Bash. Duncan Darrow, Fighting Chance Founder and Chairman greeted everyone.

We all enjoyed our lobsters, chowders and much more, paring this great seafood with two great North Fork wines!

Chip Duryea was honored with a painting by Paul Davis. Chip’s generosity and love of Fighting Chance shone greater than the sunshine!

T&C has been taking our Board of Directors and executive staff members for the past few years… it’s a tradition we will miss since Duryea’s has been sold and will never quite be the same again without Chip.

A good time was had by all!
