MAHOPAC, N.Y. – Nearly 90 golfers teed it up at Putnam National Golf Course in Mahopac on Friday, April 14, for the Good Friday Golf Outing, comprised of Yorktown alumni and their peers. The annual event raised several thousand dollars for the Yorktown-based Harrison Apar Field of Dreams Foundation, a 14-year-old, not-for-profit that works closely with fundraising partner, Yorktown Athletic Club, and other local organizations to enhance recreation and education in the community and reward extraordinary individual effort, regardless of natural ability.

The outing was started seven years ago by Yorktown High Class of 2006 alumnus Ryan Froats with the help of others, many of whom are varsity lacrosse alumni at the school and classmates of Harrison. This year’s turnout was the largest to date.

In addition to contest pictured winners for closest to the hole and lowest score, the longest drive was by Tom Interlicchio.

Among community sponsors and donors contributing to the Good Friday Golf Outing were Yorktown Police Benevolent Association, Yorktown Tire Auto Care, AJ’s Bar and Grill, DAS Auto Parts, Yorktown Feast of San Gennaro, Douglas Ofner, Press Family, Settembrino Family, Spadaccia Family, Cushner Family, Franzoso Contracting, Alliance for Safe Kids, Mohegan Lake VW & Audi, Fanning Electric, Suburban Wines & Liquors, Murphy’s Restaurant, Oscar’s Restaurant, Furci’s Restaurant, Mohansic Golf Course Assistant Pro Skip Marini, Putnam National Golf Course, and CST Kitchens & Bath.

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
