It seems ages ago that chil­dren and sup­porters of Kids’ Club of Tar­ry­town & Sleepy Hollow gath­ered at the Re­li­gious Order of the Sa­cred Heart of Mary (RSHM) LIFE Cen­ter to cel­e­brate the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s major milestone. Yet it was only March 12. A much grander event was sched­uled to take place at the Warner Li­brary that af­ter­noon, but grow­ing con­cern over the virus lim­ited the crowd to a hand­ful of of­fi­cials: Sleepy Hol­low Mayor Ken Wray and, on be­half of Mayor Drew Fix­ell, Vil­lage Trustee Becky Mc­Gov­ern, who pro­claimed March 12th to be “Kids’ Club Day.”

How­ever small the party, the big num­ber for the day re­mained the same: one mil­lion, rep­re­sent­ing the num­ber of dol­lars donated for the ben­e­fit of the un­der­served chil­dren of Tar­ry­town and Sleepy Hol­low across all organizations served by Kids’ Club over the decade. For the last ten years, Kids’ Club has been a lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tion that has pro­vided grants, vol­un­teers, and sup­port to a va­ri­ety of or­ga­ni­za­tions in Tar­ry­town and Sleepy Hol­low. They have fos­tered over 20 ed­u­ca­tional, de­vel­op­men­tal, and fi­nan­cial pro­grams for un­der­served fam­i­lies in the com­mu­nity, ex­tend­ing their as­sis­tance to over 1,500 chil­dren per year. The RSHM LIFE (Learn­ing is for Every­one) pro­gram is one of Kid’s Clubs ben­e­fi­cia­ries, and as part of their tenth an­niver­sary, Kids’ Club Pres­i­dent Jen­nifer Liddy Green and Di­rec­tor Shiloh Makey pre­sented the pro­gram’s Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Sr. Su­san Gardella with a symbolic check honoring the milestone.
