bobandkathyThe 2018 Scarsdale Bowl Committee will begin its work in early December to select the 2018 recipient of the Scarsdale Bowl and is seeking recommendations from the community for a possible honoree. The Scarsdale Bowl, under the sponsorship of the Scarsdale Foundation, has been awarded annually since 1943 to an individual, or in rare instances a husband and wife, who has given "unselfishly of his/her time, energy and effort to the civic welfare of the community." The founding donors of the Bowl believed that "many who serve generously and voluntarily, without office, honor or publicity, are those deserving of having their names permanently inscribed on the Scarsdale Bowl."

Terri Simon is serving as chair of this year's Scarsdale Bowl Committee. The members of the committee serve staggered two-year terms. The newly appointed Class of 2019 includes Karen Brew, Leanne Freda, Jack Scott Miller, Deb Morel, Dan Moretti, Jill Serling and John Spiro. The continuing Class of 2018 includes Norman Alterman, Diane Baylor, Kate Conlan, Lee Fischman, Mona Longman and Margaret Smith. Seth Ross, Scarsdale Foundation trustee, will serve on the committee as the liaison, and Robert Jeremiah is serving as secretary/treasurer. Randy Guggenheimer, president of the Scarsdale Foundation, is an ex officio, non-voting member.

The Scarsdale Bowl will be awarded at a dinner on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, at The Fountainhead in New Rochelle. The ceremony will pay tribute to the 2018 honoree and to the spirit of volunteerism, central to the civic life of the Scarsdale community.

The Bowl Committee welcomes community input. It will hold its first meeting December 3, 2017, and requests that residents contact any member of the committee with suggestions of potential recipients. Recommendations are requested by November 10, 2017, although suggestions will be accepted at any time before the December 3 meeting. Suggestions should be emailed to the Committee chair at terrisimon103@gmail.com. Questions may directed to Terri Simon at 914-723-5004.

sherwoodThis letter was sent to Scarsdale10583 by Emily Sherwood, retiring President of the Scarsdale Foundation:
To the Editor: As I retire from the Scarsdale Foundation board after ten rewarding years of service, I wanted to express my gratitude to this amazing community for its abundance of support and compassion for those less fortunate. Thanks to the many generous donations that we have received this year, we have been able to send 11 needy Scarsdale elementary students to our local Rec Camp, while providing $124,000 in scholarship aid to college sophomores, juniors and seniors. The needs of our Scarsdale students who struggle financially to attend college are more pressing than many may realize, and our scholarship awards help to lessen the burden of excessive student loans and other forms of student and parental debt.

Special thanks go out to our corporate sponsors whose generosity during 2016-2017 is so gratefully acknowledged: Houlihan Lawrence; the Scarsdale Rotary Club; United Way of Westchester and Putnam; Christie-Spencer Corp., and Scarsdale Improvement Corp. In addition, we so appreciate our Salute Page sponsors - Advocate Brokerage Corp., Platinum Drive Realty; and Scarsdale Security Systems, Inc. – who help us to promote our annual Scarsdale Bowl Dinner, which this year honored Bob and Kathy Steves for their extraordinary voluntary public service in the community.

There is much work that the Scarsdale Foundation quietly undertakes that may not be widely recognized. We administer some 20 funds that have been established for myriad purposes: educational assistance; community service; SHS awards; as well as the Scarsdale School Personnel and Family Assistance Fund. We also provide grants upon request to community organizations in need. This year we provided a $50,000 grant to the Scarsdale Public Library for its renovation project, as well as smaller grants to the Teen Center and Scarsdale Woman's Club. And in May we presented the Foundation's scholarship award to 2017 recipient Zoe Ewing at the High School Awards Ceremony

I feel fortunate to have worked with so many outstanding civic leaders on the Foundation board for the betterment of our community, and I want to extend special thanks to the 2016-2017 board for their dedicated and thoughtful participation: Evelyn Stock, Vice-President; Susie Rush, Treasurer; Randy Guggenheimer, Assistant Treasurer; Jane Veron, Secretary; David Karp; Seth Ross; Tom Giordano; and B.K. Munguia. You are the A Team in my book!

Thank you all for making Scarsdale the kind of place of which we can be proud!

Emily Sherwood
President, Scarsdale Foundation 2016-2017

CheerleadersPacked crowds estimated to be over three thousand in number gathered Friday September 15 to celebrate Scarsdale High School Varsity Football team's homecoming game. After beating White Plains and North Rockland the Raiders increase their winning streak to a 3 and 0 record with their 21-14 victory against Clarkstown South.

Earlier in the day, the Scarsdale Girls Varsity A Field Hocky team scored a 4-1 win against Bronxville, putting them at 4-1-1 for the season.

The homecoming game was the culmination of Raider Pride week which celebrated athletes of all sports. Balloons, rally towels and pompoms could be seen at many of the home games where Scarsdale fans were seen and heard cheering for their Raider players.

There has been an increased sense of Raider spirit visible throughout the village from the lawns signs that were displayed to the car flags waving down Scarsdale's streets and filling its parking lots. According to a Maroon and White representative, merchandise purchases from students, alumni, parents and residents broke records due to its new ability to process credit card sales. Maroon and White raises money to provide funds for the purchase of equipment for SHS and SMS teams and physical education programs not covered by the school budgets.

There are no games this Thursday or Friday (September 21-22) due to the holiday.
Scarsdale's Varsity Girls soccer team will play against Mahopac at 10 am on the turf at SHS. Also on Saturday, the Raider Varsity football team will host Mt. Vernon at 7 pm for their Senior Game.

LemonadeWith just a few days left to relax and enjoy summer break, Quaker Ridge girls decided to set up a lemonade stand to raise funds for Hurricane Harvey recovery. They raised close to $200 thanks to Scaradale's generous neighbors.
