We are in need of one or more people to run and plan the children’s Halloween party.

RADBURN SWIM TEAM
The Radburn Swim Team had record-breaking season this summer! We are ecstatic to report that we had 122 swimmers on the team—61 of those swimmers being under the age of 9! After a tough loss to Fair Lawn, we ended the season 3-1 and came in 3rd place at the league championships. This was also the first time in over 5 years that our team broke over 200 points at the championships, which is a result of the hard work and dedication that our swimmers put in this summer!
Our excellent 8 &under swimmers had an amazing season this year. Many of these swimmers were first time members of the swim team and all were able to complete a full lap of freestyle at our final home meet! The 8 & unders worked hard at practice each day, and their hard work definitely paid off. The 8 &under swimmers include: Chloe Alania, Adrian Amatuzzi, Vincent Amatuzzi, Julian Amin, Adam Bajranovic, Jonathan Bas, Lucy Bontekoe, Sam Bontekoe, Ella Chamberlain, Jackie Chevrier, John Clark, Tommy Clark, Dori Cohen, Lennox Cohen, Maddie Cohen, Julia Cortese, Lena Danilewicz, Vincent Danilewicz, Natalie Davis, Giuliana DiGeronimo, Chris Ferrante, Nicholas Ferrante, Daniella Graff, James Graff, Desmond Graham, Hannah Hakim, Mili Hauben, Romy Haverman, Antonio Ingrati, Izzy Malin, Maddy Malin, Hannah McConnell, Alicia McLeon, Cash Miles, Hunter Miles, Emersyn Montalvo, Jacoby Narkiewicz, Max Nozderko, Miller Ochs, Nate Plaksienko, Dylan Rosenberg, Juliet Rosenberg, Jay Rudnick, Maya Rudnick, Mia Shalom, Zarah Shroff, George Siabanis, Theo Siabania, Alessandra Sommar, Nathaniel Sommar, Izzy Stein, Cole Stevens, Ben Suehr, Sophie Teegufenho, Rachel Thor, Kaya Vehrtiens, Cameron Weidhorn, Asher Weinraub, Avi Weinraub, Juliet Wilson, and Paul Wilson.
The 9/10 age group had a magnificent season and contributed to a huge portion of the points scored at each meet. They worked wonderfully together and were excellent teammates to the other swimmers. They are a competitive group and won a ton of races this summer! The 9/10 swimmers include: Mick Abernathy, Chase Amin, Liam Bas, Will Bontekoe, Jack Chamberlain, Ayelet Cohen, Sydney Cohen, Isabella Cortese, Sophia Cortese, Devon Denio, Riley Denio, Paloma DiGeronimo, Carina DiMaggio, Dominic DiMaggio, Michael Ferrante, Yarden Hauben, Gilad Kogan, Unzile Koksal, Zeynep Koksal, Michaela Lash, Jared Lopez, Daniel Pascual, Dylan Pollock, Madeleine Romanik, Victoria Seidler, and Kenan Sengul.
The 11/12 age group had a very strong and very successful season. These swimmers really stepped up to the plate as this was the first summer, for many of them, where they had to swim two laps in a swim meet instead of one. They came to morning practice each day and worked extremely hard, and it most definitely paid off! The 11/12 swimmers include: Ariel Alania, Daniel Bahrijczuk, Maryann Bahrijczul, Ronen Bas, Alec Cameron, Daniel Cohen, Gilad Cohen, Makenzie Davis, Sean Drahouzal, Charlotte Farley, Eli Haverman, Giana Ingrati, Ella Lebet, Andres Lopez, Gigi Ochs, Isabella Pollock, and Cyrus Shroff.
Our 13/14 age group is filled with many talented swimmers. These swimmers were up for any challenge and many helped our team out by swimming up in the 15/17 age group. This group works really hard and loves to have fun in both practice and the swim meets. These swimmers never disappoint in a race and work together as a team to have jaw-dropping relays each meet! The 13/14 age group includes: Matthew Cameron, Hunter Coates, Luke Farley, Ella Ferat, Maya Guennouni, Laeyah Montalvo, Nico O’Neill, Emma Radice, Luis Rubio, Romi Shalom, and Andy Weisberger.
The 15/17 age group may be our smallest group, but they definitely have no problem leading The Radburn Swim Team both in and out of the pool. These swimmers are a pleasure to coach and are great role models for our younger swimmers. They are capable of swimming the most grueling events at our swim meets, and do so with good spirits knowing they are really helping our team out! We are ecstatic that none of our 15/17 swimmers graduated from the swim team this year, and hope they will all be back next year! The 15/17 swimmers include: August Abernathy, Ben Cameron, Shira Cohen, Johnny Radice, and Ziv Shalom.
Thank you to everyone for your support of The Radburn Swim Team this summer! We had a blast watching the swimmers grow both in and out of the pool and look forward to another successful summer of swimming next year!

RADBURN CITIZENS’ ASSOCIATION – FAMILY DAY, 2017
And just like that another Radburn Family Day has gone into our books! This truly is a community event in every sense of the word, from the many hours of planning and coordinating, to the stringing of lights, painting of faces, contracts reviewed and signed, tables arranged, meals prepared, pies eaten, eggs tossed and dances danced...it really takes a village...a village I am so very proud to call our home.
Thank you again to all of you who helped personally make Radburn Family Day 2017 a success. None of this would have been possible without your volunteer efforts.
First and foremost, I need to thank my RCA Executive Team – Janie Alania, Jennifer Wylie and Jill Davis. These women spent hours upon hours of their time away from family and friends to be at meetings, on group texts, on calls, Facebook, etc. helping prepare and plan everything for this weekend to actually happen. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you have done for your friends and neighbors, and, in particular, for helping me get through my first Family Day as RCA President!!!!
Thank you to Liz Kuriyama for all of her work in spearheading Friday night’s events. Although the rain caused us to cancel the outdoor events, Liz was on top of her game for months to make sure everything was ready to go for our planned dance party and hot dog extravaganza. Thank you also to everyone who baked for the roaming bake sale that was supposed to happen that night; I am sure your desserts made some very lucky people incredibly happy!!! Thank you also to The Dutch House and The Railyard Tavern for offering rainy-day discounts to the Radburn community that night. Another special thanks to Shana Cohen and Leya Hakim for planning and setting up the amazing (and delicious) return of the Dinner in the Park.

Thank you also to all of our dinner volunteers – Lourena Keilblock, Michele Gehbauer, Terry Buksar, Jessica Ochs, Gloria Morell, Emilio Morell, Danny Hakim, Shana Cohen, Leya Hakim, Jessica Garrett, Mike Bradway and Even Bolla!!
Thank you to John Davis for running our amazing light show at the Saturday night concert. In addition to running around to make sure we had what we needed to illuminate The Shots, John spent many hours setting up for the band and then taking down the lights/clearing the stage. Many thanks to Dave Wilson for helping out late-night as well!!!
Thank you to The Grange’s George Pagonis and our runners, Jake Berowitz and Joe Compolo, for all of their help in setting up for our Family Day events. George knew everything that needed to happen and made sure it did; Jake and Joe were with the RCA Executive Team the entire day on Saturday and made sure nothing was missed and everything went smoothly!
A huge thank you to Fire Engine Company #4 for all of their help with the grill, tug-of-war rope and, in particular, the spectacular hose-down that brought with it priceless smiles, laughter and even rainbows!
Also, a big thank you to Dave Drahouzal and The Dutch House for the ice donation!!!
And...a super, special thank you to everyone who either signed up to volunteer or just jumped on in to assist us...you were all amazing!!!!

Marcia was a graduate of the University of Cincinnati, where she earned her Bachelors Degree. Prior to her retirement, Marcia was employed as a teacher for the Fair Lawn Board of Education.

Rapture, Blister, Burn by Gina Gionfriddo. After grad school, Catherine and Gwen chose polar opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rockstar academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the others life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs, the prize being Gwen's husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals.
