Jenny Lewis Memorial College Fund

In August 2015, Jennifer Lewis Catalanello passed away at the young age of 46.  While her biography noted that she was the Chief Development Officer for Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in White Plains and a former trustee for the Mount Kisco Library, she was the mother of two young children.

Jenny and her husband, Doug, had set up 529 college savings accounts for their two beautiful children, Lexi and Andrew. A “Go Fund Me” drive has been set up for her children and all donations go directly to these accounts.

St. Francis of Assisi Says Goodbye to Fr. Bill Damroth

Father William Damroth, officially the Administrator of St. Francis of Assisi in Mount Kisco said goodbye to parishioners as he has now become the pastor of the similarly named church in Newburgh.

In a short period of time, Father Bill made an impact at St. Francis.  In his own words, he worked to build “partnerships for those spiritual connections we all need.”  He brought St. Francis closer to the Mount Kisco community by joining the Food Pantry at the United Methodist Church building the ties established by the church’s participation in the Emergency Shelter Partnership.

Father Bill also added masses to the church’s schedule, including a Sunday night mass at 5:30 for the youth of the parish.  Father Bill reached out to all groups in the diverse parish.  At his last mass, the youth mass last Sunday, Father Bill asked the parishioners, especially the young people, to show courage in their lives.

Fox Lane Youth Lacrosse Participates in Wounded Warrior Tourney

On Sunday, November 9, 2014, Fox Lane Youth Lacrosse teams participated in the No Man Down charity lacrosse tournament held at Byram Hills High School to raise money to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.  The tournament organizers presented a check for $50,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The participants in the tournament also heard a moving speech by Adam Silva, a representative of the Wounded Warrior Project to create awareness among middle and high school athletes to the unseen sacrifices being made by fellow Americans just a few years older than themselves.

Wanted: Mount Kisco Parking Enforcement Officer 35K to 40K Plus ?

On October 9, 2014, the Village of Mount Kisco posted a job opening for a Parking Enforcement Officer with a salary of $35,000 to $40,000 (see link below).  Of course, this position is available because of the second case of a PEO stealing thousands of dollars in quarters from Mount Kisco and under the nose of Mayor Cindrich.

In September, Jeff Daday admitted to taking $89,000 over five years emptying parking meters in Mount Kisco and depositing them at his account at People’s United Savings Bank on Moger Avenue in Mount Kisco.  Didn’t that look suspicious?

Of course, in 2005, another officer, Jason Berke, a parking enforcement officer pleaded guilty to stealing $30,000 worth of coins (it was probably much more but $30,000 was part of the plea) cashing them in at Coinstar machines at supermarkets.  Didn’t that look suspicious?

Luckily, we have many honest Parking Enforcement Officers in Mount Kisco.  It appears to be easy to take quarters under the administration of Mayor Cindrich where there are very few permanent supervisory employees, including an interim police chief.
