RIP To A Mr. New Rochelle - Glasglow Lee

Glasglow was the steward of the Remington Branch Boys & Girls Club.
He heard the practice and perfection of the Drum and Bugle Corps
and the internationally renowned Charles W. Dickerson Marching Band.
What remains interesting about Glasglow
is
that he not only greeted us at the club but applauded us
when parents were not there.

Respect to the Hon. Frank J. Garito Sr.

Life is an intelligence and
ethnic tree that
sometimes shades the growth of a civilization
in local and global terms.
People are shaped by people-intentions.
Though I am not a finished product I was
so shaped
in my imagination by this man
and so many of his introductions.
He was a people person and he was
handsome, charismatic, wise and kind.
Many people know Sinatra and
hear of

Many paths define a man’s life:
construction-worker on the entire original New York State Highway system, retiree from the
Operational Engineers’ Union, Husband, Father, Ball-er Extraordinaire,
Gambler, Club Owner, competent chief and his moonshine… was mighty-Fine too!
Homie, was a people-person, he loved being well dressed and he never met a stranger.
Homie enjoyed his toys too his new, Black Lincoln Continentals, he
owned Harley Davidsons Only if they were Full-dressed; Owned
Boats well outfitted and, Courted woman in his day
that could Make you say my. My, my.
Friendship… was essential to him and so was respect… and boundaries… concerning “his” family. Homie, you see was old school, A gentleman, But you didn‘t cross his lines
Cause he offered no excuses for his beliefs or his actions.
Homie had a long retirement life and enjoyed club ownerships,
gambling, many, many friends, world famous Birthday Parties, fishing, and baseball.
Homie took out time for people and was a father to many young people well into their adulthood. You could call him anytime -- night or day
and get advice or just to laugh.

Alice and Clarence Stewart’s 1970’s New Rochelle Out-of-Pocket/Out-of-Heart Youth Group

March 07, 2012 - 02:19

I guess when I look back at my youth I understand like Charles Dickens said, “It was the best of times; it was the worst of times”. I am a baby boomer and I grew up in New Rochelle, NY. We had a more than an adequate City-run Youth Bureau and Department of Recreation with neighborhood-based and city-wide activities and plenty of Boys & Girls Clubs. We had a lot but we still needed an intimate element because the world even then was complicated.

What keeps coming to mind for me today is an experience offered by a private family for a few years between middle school and high school. Today, I call it the out-of-pocket “youth group”. And that’s what it was. It was created by Alice and Clarence Stewart in New Rochelle, NY.

Arlene “Beanie” Rice

January 31, 2012 - 08:09

Arlene… was always a help to her family, a
competent person; an “old and sweet soul”if you will.
She, along with Durwood Hall in my reflection
were the first and real youth leaders
on Lawton Street in New Rochelle back-in-the-day
representing [our side] of city hall.

Beanie… was the “big sister” for her siblings and anyone else that
came near. She had a heart of gold
and a voice in music that could make
you fall in love at any age, especially if she
caught you in her smile.

There was no acclaim for Beanie alone in music,
as she was a force in a group of singing sisters:
Rosalyn Major,Deborah Henderson and Lance Rogers.

Today we celebrate
your loving and your life and friendships.

We celebrate your core competencies,
care-taking, courtesies, and give
Voice to our love for you
as a natural leader,
big sister,
friend and
example in our youth
to the benefit of
“good old”
and priceless native,
New Rochelle.

Remembering : Muriel Gracye Hollar “Mommie Hollar”

Mommie never forgot
the child inside
and
her own sophistication.
She was like classical music
from an intense single note
to a
cascading Chopin concerto with
a smile.
