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.

Load Up The Wagon!

We didn’t have the luxury of minivans when the boys were small. What we did have was a 1966 Ford Country Squire station wagon: long, sleek, solid and hunter green with imitation “woodie” trim.

Our wagon was certainly big enough to accommodate three growing boys and a baby in a portable crib (anchored down on the back seat) with plenty of room to spare.  This set-up ...

Twelve-score and one year ago

Last week, on the 4th of July, America turned 241 years old. Did you bring a birthday present? What do you get for the country that has everything? It has amber waves of grain, it has purple mountain majesties, it has oceans white with foam. Most of these  assets are highly leveraged to the Chinese at the moment, so you’d better get out and see them now because they’re planning ...

Cell phones: A boon or a bust?

We’ve all had the experience of being “butt-dialed,” a euphemism for your pocket-held cell phone accidentally pressing someone else’s number. My granddaughter, Shanna, has unknowingly called me from parties at 2 a.m. I’ve enjoyed listening in on many of her celebrations and sometimes even joined in the fun when being discovered on her phone.

My most recent cell ...

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The fast-paced play, starring Richard Kline of TV comedy classic “Three’s ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...
