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.
