JACOBS LIVE REPORTS
WORKING FOR YOU
Jacobs Live always on the move reporting to the people. Giving you updated information and keeping you informed. I had the privilege to have as my guest last week on my show Mr. Anthony Watson, Recruitment Specialist for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ulster County. Mr. Watson was a superior guest and a wealth of knowledge. He is making a difference each and every day in the lives of our youth. I strongly recommend that you become involved and research the possibility of becoming a Big Brother or Big sister. The commitment is well worth the time and the rewards will be life changing.
JACOBS LIVE is proud to announce that this week I had Mr. Justin Ihne, Associate Executive Director of the YMCA on my show. Justin has been working for the YMCA for many years and his dedication and commitment to building strong kids, strong families and strong communities is well recognized. Justin welcomes you to to come down to the YMCA and take a tour. They have state of the art equipment and trained specialists there to answer any questions you may have.
Remember the KIDS CLASSIC is coming up on April 17, 2010. This event is a FAMILY AFFAIR. The KIDS CLASSIC started in 1996 and today far exceeds the original expectations. Justin reports that they have over 250 kids pre-registered and more coming in every day. Also check out the Healthy Kids Expo that day. Numerous booths will be available with educational information and fun things for the entire family.
Moving on: the YMCA Camp Seewackamano was the highlight of my children's life. As Justin described last evening the camp builds and shapes our children's character and their future. I urge all parents to inquire regarding this wonderful summer adventure. Your children will share in a time of their lives that will last with them forever.
JACOBS LIVE: also attended the Ulster County Legislature meeting on Tuesday 3/16/10. STANDING ROOM ONLY filled the room. The attendance was superior and the public comment lasted for over two hours. Speakers were very passionate about their subject content and many in the room had the opportunity to hear different views and perspectives on many issues facing our county governmental officials. The Pride of Ulster County Award was presented to the League of Women Voters, by Jeanette Provenzano, Minority Leader and a long time member of the League of Women Voters.
SPEAKERS INCLUDED: Honorable Mr. Paul J. Hansut presented his Majority Address which was compassionate, and right on target as it pertained to the many issues facing our State and local government. He emphasized the importance of the Ulster County Legislature working together in a bi-partisan effort for the residents of Ulster County. Honorable Jeanette Provenzano, Minority Leader, presented her Minority Address outlining many of the accomplishments of the 2009 Ulster County Legislature and their efforts in making change outlining many of them in her speech and their willingness to go forward in working together with the new Chairman for the betterment of Ulster County and the people.
In closing, I would like to mention that we all have to live, raise our children, work and share bread with our fellow man in our community. I take great pride in serving my community and would hope that we can all recognize the importance of this.
