Father Champlin’s Guardian Angel Society has been building paths of success for low-income students to high school graduation and beyond since 1997. Their annual golf tournament is a fun way to support the Society and help raise funds for tuition assistance and other educational support to local, underprivileged students in the program.
This year, the 10th annual golf tournament will be held on Tuesday, August 12 and will include a pig roast celebration after the tournament. Please register using this form by August 4th and indicate whether you will be golfing, attending just the after party, or both.

We had a great time at the Hawley-Green Open House for New Businesses last Friday! It was inspiring to see the amount of support in our community for the newest businesses in Hawley-Green: Wine @ 105, 83 & Company, and Fresh Nail Lounge and Spa. In addition to the wine tastings, array of cheesecake flavors, and hand scrubs, attendees were also entered into a raffle for a $50 gift card from Laci’s Tapas Bar, one of the sponsors for the event. A portion of all proceeds went to the Northeast Hawley Development Association‘s (NEHDA) Community Fund and will be used to further strengthen the surrounding neighborhood.
To keep up-to-date on all the business and community happenings in Hawley-Green, follow NEHDA on Facebook.

The Northside CYO kicks-off their summer academy this week. The academy is part of their Refugee Youth Outreach Program that helps new refugee children transition into the Syracuse school system. Refugees are taught a variety of different things to prepare them for the fall, including English expressions like “Hello” and how to ask for directions to different places within schools, such as the cafeteria. “Our summer academy is intended to provide our newly arrived refuge children with the education and environment to prepare them to enter American schools,” explains Maddie Wood, CYO’s Refugee Youth Coordinator. “During the six weeks of program the children grow significantly in the areas of language and understanding and also in being comfortable in their new school setting.”
A shorter version of the academy is also offered throughout the school year for refugee students who begin mid-year. To learn more about the Catholic Charities’ Refugee Youth Outreach Program, visit their website.
