Everyone Had A Ball At Somers Soccerfest


SOMERS, N.Y. - The following information was provided by Vicki Durso.
Twenty nine teams with over 450 players from pre-K through 11th grade participated in this annual Soccerfest, which took place on Oct. 17 at Reis Park. 

Somers AYSO Region 95 also invited Mount Kisco and Yorktown to add some fun competition with other towns. Outside organizations purchased booths for a nominal fee so that they could provide fun activities during soccer breaks and raise money for their youth organizations. Groups included Somers Education Foundation, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Lets Play it Forward, FC Somers Galaxy team, AYSO National Games teams, and Primrose PTA. AYSO also welcomed their annual sponsors, Dr. Bridgham, Camp Kiwi, Just for Fun, Mount Kisco Sports, Arroway and Elite Dental Studios.

AYSO also honored John Vera and Dennis Mensi as their Lynn Adams recipients for 2015. Each year AYSO honors a new volunteer or two in memory of Lynn Adams, who was a Somers resident who volunteered in AYSO and with many other volunteer organizations in Somers.   

John Vera is AYSO Region 95 Health and Safety Chair and Dennis Mensi is the Coach Administrator.

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...
