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!

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne Looks Back on 2018 Legislative Session

July 17, 2018

There’s an old saying, “Our liberty is never safe when the New York State Legislature is in session.” There’s definitely some truth to that. This past legislative session I successfully fought back against several initiatives that would have added to our state’s crushing tax burden, added excessive regulations on businesses that hurt job creation and chipped away at ...

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 ...

If You See Something, Say Something

I am writing this letter because I see something different with the new Yorktown Town Board. I see an open government instead of a dictatorship with rubber stamps. I see the new Town Board working together for the best interests of the residents in Yorktown.
