MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Mount Kisco Daily Voice accepts signed letters to the editor. Send signed letters to

Dear editor:

I want to thank the Westchester community.

For the last 21 years, I’ve had the pleasure of calling Westchester – and the Boys & Girls Club of Northern Westchester – my home. It is with bittersweet sentiment that I step down as executive director of this amazing organization to accept the position of Director of Major Metro Services for Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Over the last two decades, I have seen the Club continue to grow into a thriving resource that inspires our youth to realize their full potential. With the community’s help, we offer hope, opportunity, and a sense of belonging.

Today, at my final day at the Club, I wanted to thank the Mount Kisco and Westchester communities for helping this organization lead our young people to success, especially those who need extra guidance and support.

I am humbled and honored to be the recipient of this year’s Humanitarian Award at the Club’s dinner June 6. Through events like this, and a supportive community like Westchester, our Club has enabled 100 percent of our at-risk high school seniors to graduate on-time for six consecutive years; provided more than 60,000 hot meals and snacks to members, many of whom would not have otherwise had a nutritious dinner; and has instilled a strong sense of community among our action-minded youth. I’m proud they give back to a community that has already given them so much.

Kindest regards,  Brian Skanes Director of Major Metro Services Boys & Girls Clubs of America 351 Main St, Mt. Kisco, NY 10549 914-666-8069
