North2South baseball tournament a success
The annual North2South Baseball Tournament between North End and South End teams (2 games) home and away, was a successful and enjoyable contest.
Sponsored by Rep. Aaron Michlewitz, both teams received hats, shirts and awards were presented following the games and refreshments were served.
For many years, this neighborhood versus neighborhood contest has brought two communities together competing and making new friends.
Rep. Michlewitz has hit a grand slam with this yearly baseball event.
NEAD Scholarships awarded
Twenty-five students have received scholarships and gift certificates from North End Against Drugs (NEAD) to help with their all-important education.
NEAD is always in the forefront when it comes to community assistance, programs, events and social activities.
The neighborhood organization is a non-profit group that works hard to provide these scholarships on an annual basis.
This year seven $500 scholarships were presented to local students and 100 give certificates were awarded.
Another great All-Star Game
Another North End Athletic Association (NEAA) Majors (Little League) All Star Game played at Langone Field was nothing short of a well-played game.
Selected by the coaches and league officials the players did a great job on and off the field. They certainly enjoyed showing off their baseball talents.
The NEAA and several sponsors helped make the game the success and fun filled game it turned out to be.
Gannon and Reppucci honored
North End resident James Gannon and former North Ender Anthony Reppucci were recently recognized for their outstanding contributions to the North End Athletic Association (NEAA).
Both honorees were presented awards for their efforts and they threw out the first pitch for the All-Star game.
Recognizing Gannon and Reppucci was a nice gesture by the NEAA.
