Letter to the Editor: Bronxville Athletic Council and PTA Thank Bronxville Community for Support during Homecoming Week Print


To the Editor: 

Nov. 1, 2017:  As a follow-up to the Bronxville School Homecoming 2017, the Bronxville Athletic Council and PTA would like to thank the incredibly generous support of the Bronxville community, whose members tirelessly donated their time, energy, products, and services, and without which we could not have organized and enjoyed such a well-attended and fun homecoming week celebration.

We want to thank our local business donors for the fabulous and most generous food donations to the Bronco Barn & Grill: Park Place Bagels, Scarborough Fair, Mini's Prime Meats & Specialties, Lange's Delicatessen, and the Eastchester Odyssey Diner. Their delicious meals were enjoyed by all the Bronco fans in the stands and helped raise money to support the Athletic Council programs throughout the year.  

Also, we would like to thank Pete's Park Place Tavern and Gino's Pizzeria & Restaurant for offering team dinners for the winners of two spirit competitions among the high school teams during homecoming.  From the bottom of our hearts (and stomachs), thank you all for your generosity!

The Athletic Council is also very grateful for and appreciates all the loyal support and sponsorship of over 75 Journal News advertisers cheering on our Bronco teams:

In addition to the business advertisers, we extend our gratitude to over 40 Bronxville families and all 13 varsity & JV fall teams for placing a spirit ad in the Journal News. Simply amazing; our endless gratitude for your continued support--thank you!

To all the volunteers who made homecoming an incredible success manning the Bronco Barn & Grill, shifts for the PTA semi-annual apparel sale, and all of the behind-the-scenes planners of the homecoming week celebration, we are very grateful and appreciate all the work and time you put in to support the Athletic Council and Bronxville School community of fans and athletes! We could not do this without you, a million thanks!

And finally, the Athletic Council would like to thank Karen Peterson, Dawn Hartson, and Anthony Vaglica and the amazing grounds team of the Bronxville Athletic Department for their selfless dedication to the Bronxville School athletes, the Athletic Council, and the PTA during all of the homecoming festivities. We are overwhelmed by your support--you never let us down and we are so grateful!

The generosity of so many in the Bronxville community enables the Athletic Council to raise funds to support all of the programs that will continue to complement the Bronxville Athletic Program throughout the year, such as game day flags, Bonfire Night, homecoming game lights, Food Truck Night, spirit t-shirts, banners, the parade of athletes, pep rallies, Spirit Week, and more.

The Bronxville Athletic Council and PTA are all so proud of this year's accomplishments and success of homecoming week. Thank you!

Rose Crawford, Parent Co-Chair, Bronxville Athletic Council, and Linda Pagano, Parent Member, Bronxville Athletic Council
