In 2014 or sooner, I will begin a series of Posts titled “MyYonkers Conversations”, where I will be spotlighting members of the Yonkers community either through video or transcription and showcasing some of the more amazing and inspiring life stories that exist in our great city.
I have a few conversations lined up later this fall and will be running them by the end of the year but was curious if you knew someone in Yonkers who you would like to see spotlighted on here? Some examples may include but are not limited to:
- A 50, 60. 70 or even 80 year resident of Yonkers (The Yonkers Leprechaun)
- School teachers (Mr. Brown)
- Public Works/ Law Enforcement/ Fire/ EMS
- Perhaps someone who has served the community for generations as a business owner, or simply a worker. ( R.I.P. Jimmy Reagan)
My goal is to utilize the following that we have garnered on MyYonkers.org to give light and deserving recognition to those individuals that help do their part to make Yonkers a place that not only is still a vibrant city but also those who forever live in our minds as staples and familiar faces of our childhood growing up in the city.
One can only imagine the litany of individuals who could have been spotlighted on here but sadly have passed away so this may be an excellent way to recognize some amazing Yonkers residents in the living years.
If you have someone in mind, please feel free to email me at MyYonkers@gmail.com and let me know the details. Thanks guys!
