Page 6 THE VILLADOM TIMES I • February 11, 2009 Wyckoff Wyckoff Love Fund celebrates Tenth Anniversary Ten years ago, the Wyckoff Clergy Association began sponsoring the Wyckoff Love Fund. Since then, all Wyckoff congregations, together with the Wyckoff Lions Club, Atlantic Stewardship Bank, and numerous Wyckoff residents, have made it possible for the Wyckoff Love Fund to distribute up to $50,000 a year. These funds have been disbursed to children who live in Wyckoff and to children with a parent who works in Wyckoff. These are children with medical, emotional, educational, or practical needs which are unmet in other ways. The Love Fund’s nine trustees meet monthly to review and respond to the needs of these children. The trustees are sometimes asked to share the stories that have brought tears to their eyes and hugs from grateful recipients. They wish they could. However, the reputation and trust which the Love Fund has earned over the years is because of the trustees’ adherence to strict confidentiality. In celebration of the organization’s anniversary, the community is invited to a celebratory concert by SIRENE and Friends. This group’s work features fourpart a cappella harmony. Their sound has been described as being “as close as you are going to get to heaven before you get there.” This free performance will be held on Friday, Feb. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Wyckoff Reformed Church, 580 Wyckoff Avenue, Wyckoff. This month, Wyckoff residents will have another opportunity to support the Love Fund’s work with children. All local residents recently received an informational brochure about the group and a response envelope for a 2009 contribution. This community mailing also requested that residents who know a child or children who might benefit from the Love Fund call Rev. David Bach at (201) 891-1782. All information will be kept confidential. Wyckoff Love Fund trustees include Rev. Jim Knol, Pat Khanjian, Rev. Bach, Lynn Clark, Rabbi Kenneth Emert, Susan Yudin, Rev. Norman Brown, Rev. David Wiley, and Jan Meyer. The trustees continue to be grateful for the organizational ideas and encouragement of the Midland Park Love Fund 10 years ago. SIRENE and Friends will perform at the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Wyckoff Love Fund.
