New Rochelle hockey mom Alysa Vasapolli submitted the following press release and these photos of the practice.

The New Rochelle Youth Hockey program were the lucky recipients of a visit by hockey Hall-of-Famer, Phil Esposito, Sunday, April 25th, 2010 at the Rye Playland Ice Casino's Studio Rink. This once-in-a-lifetime experience was donated to the program by one of the volunteer coaches, whose place of employment won the event in a charity auction.

From the moment Mr. Esposito entered the building, he was all smiles. It is no surprise why this man has had such a successful career on and off the ice. He has charisma; is passionate about the sport of hockey, the players, and most importantly, the next generation of players: our children.

The group sent out a press release, which reads as follows:

At 152 years of age, showing your age is to be expected. But even after a “face lift”?  The parishioners of St. John’s Episcopal Church, on Wilmot Road in New Rochelle, hope to remedy this with their “Bucks for Buckets” fundraising campaign.

“We need to raise enough ‘bucks’ to purchase at least 100 ‘buckets’ of paint to restore and preserve, for future generations, the original clapboard siding of the church,” said Joanne Bartoli, chairperson of the church’s fundraising committee.  “In 2009 we gave our church a virtual facelift by removing the aluminum siding which we were told by the judges for the New Rochelle Heritage Plaque Award ‘compromised the architectural significance and historical integrity’ of the church structure.  We had no argument with that!”
