YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Grab your family and friends and form a team to support local food pantries in the annual Turkey Bowl Flag Football fundraiser, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 28.

“You’ll have a fantastic time participating in a family-oriented or competitive event that benefits local food pantries,” said Yorkville Sports Association president, Al Morales.

The 2015 Turkey Bowl will benefit local food pantries, including Yorktown Community Help (YCH), a Yorktown-based nonprofit that was founded in the 1960s. Its purpose is to provide food to individuals and families in need. YCH is 100 percent volunteer run and will be accepting donations and non-perishable foods at the event. The tournament will be held at Navajo Fields at the Yorktown Sports Complex, which is generously donating its fields. You must be at least 18 years old to participate in the competitive divisions. All ages are welcome in the family division. Every player will receive a free commemorative t-shirt. The cost to participate is $35/player. The cost for students is $20/player with a valid student ID. Team check-in starts at 11 a.m. on Nov. 28, and the first game begins at noon.

Winners will walk away with fabulous prizes. The winning team will receive full color championship pinnies and gift certificates to local eateries. The MVP for the tournament will receive a football. In addition, prizes will be going to Team MVPs, Outstanding Athletic Recognition Award, Most Sportsmanship Award and the Muddiest Player Award. The event will also include a 50/50 Football Toss Accuracy Challenge! Activities will run from noon to 3 p.m. Please stop by and support this great cause!

The Best of the Best: Albert Capellini

In the spring of 1991, after answering an ad for a judicial race placed in the local Yorktown paper, I was talked into the unenviable position of running for Yorktown councilman as a Democrat in our then solidly Republican town.

Having been a practicing lawyer since 1974, I felt confident about my qualifications for the position of town judge, but being elected to the Town Board was quite ...

‘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 ...
