The Mount Kisco Little League extended its spring season with several summer travel teams. While, for some of the teams, wins did not outnumber losses, the boys played hard and had a lot of fun. The team pictured below, was the 10-year olds’ team coached by Alex Kozersky.
Tonight, Wednesday, August 8, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., volunteers for the Mount Kisco Child Care Ceneter will be scooping ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s with 25% of the proceeds gpomg to the MKCCC. Enjoy an ice cream and support the MKCCC. The MKCCC is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian child care organization established to provide quality day care in Mount Kisco.
The Mount Kisco Fire Department parade will kick off at approximately 7:00 on Friday, July 13. Mount Kisco residents should go to the parade to applaud and show support for the fire department that does so much for Mount Kisco.
The Mount Kisco Elementary School, ending it 100th year, held a moving up ceremony for its 5th graders going to Fox Lane Middle School. The ceremony hosted by Principal Sue Ostrofsky allowed each of the students to speak.
Principal Ostrofsky asked the students to appreciate everything they have including their family, friends, health and opportunities. She also asked the students to appreciate their education, school and teachers that open the doors to their future. Most importantly, Principal Ostrofsky asked the students to appreciate themselves.
Congratulations to the students of MKES.
On Monday night, the team of Shapiro Gettinger & Waldinger (commonly known as “Banks”) defeated M&R Deli by a score of 2-0 to win the Mount Kisco Little League championship. It was another exciting year for the Mount Kisco Little League and its sponsors, the aforementioned Banks and M&R Deli as well as Bellizzi, Cassidy Flynn, Elks and Whalens, all local businesses.
While SG&W had a successful season, it could never match the successful multi-year stretch achieved by Ed Reilly who has served many years as the President of the MKLL. Thank you to Ed Reilly for his years of service.
The MKLL will wrap up its season this Thursday with MKLL end of year games (9 year olds vs. 10 year olds / 11 year olds vs 12 year olds) followed by awards and then a home run derby.
Pictures taken below are from the M&R Deli vs. Cassidy Flynn game which was the game before the championship game. Thank you to Art Nelson for providing pictures. My favorite one is the picture on the right which teaches the young men the value of sportsmanship.

Children at the Center will open and close the show with a special vocal performance of songs learned throughout the year.
