Soccer — Head coach Chris Ciuca’s soccer team rebounded from a slow start to post a seven-game unbeaten streak heading into the postseason. Unfortunately for Notre Dame, that run ended in a 2-0 loss at Wethersfield in the second round of the CIAC Class L soccer tournament on Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Notre Dame High School of West Haven is hosting the Fourth Annual Hunger Relief for Haiti service project. This event, in partnership with Harvest Pack, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that addresses food insecurity, is scheduled for today from 3-7 p.m. in Collins Auditorium at Notre Dame High School.
Since 2016, Notre Dame’s Harvest Pack event has impacted the lives of children and families in Haiti. This year, the Notre Dame community is striving to reach its 2019 goal of packing 100,000 meals for the poorest country in the western hemisphere. This makes Thursday’s event the largest meal-packing project in the region.
“We’ve set another ambitious goal for ourselves this year, shooting for 100,000 meals. We were delighted when last year’s event produced almost 84,000 meals — with enthusiasm building, our fundraising efforts this year have broadened and deepened, which will propel us to our fourth successive higher total,” said James S. Zoldy Jr., President of Halsey Associates (New Haven).
Notre Dame is grateful for the generous financial support of Halsey Associates, Washington Trust Co., the West Haven and New Haven Rotary Clubs, and Notre Dame students who together raised a total of $13,000 to cover the cost of food, packaging, and transportation.
“This event wouldn’t be possible without the volunteers associated with the Connecticut chapter of Harvest Pack under the dedicated and steadfast leadership of Dick Dill. Once the meals are prepared and boxed, Dick and his crew arrange the logistics to transport the meals to St. Therese School and Orphanage in Carrefour, Haiti,” said Zoldy.
When the goal of 100,000 meals is achieved, the volunteers of Notre Dame’s Harvest Pack events will have packed over a quarter of a million meals for St. Therese School and Orphanage. Sign up at https://forms.gle/D6YkzCiEXoT6D4o68 or email Mrs. Kathy Wielk, Vice President for Community Relations and Leadership Giving, at email@example.com to volunteer.
“Harvest Pack has become a signature event and rally point for our community,” said Robert F. Curis, President of Notre Dame High School. “It is a wonderful way for the Notre Dame community, friends and neighbors to roll up our collective sleeves and set our minds and hearts into action to serve others in need.”

With his Christian faith and a sense of community, Phil Liscio has worked over the past decade to help others and give back through a group he founded called Westies Care.
Liscio, who was born in Buffalo, NY, was raised in Milford. He and his wife Janet moved to West Haven about 30 years ago.
“We got married and bought a house here a couple months later,” he said.
Liscio said before he met his wife, he was very involved in doing work with the Catholic Church. He said his volunteer work in West Haven started when he and Janet had children.
“I was a stay at home dad,” said Liscio. “I would do things like take them to the park. Or I would take them to recreation department [events] like ‘Mommy and Me’ which they changed to ‘Mommy, Daddy and Me’ because of me. You start meeting people.”
He said Patty Horvath told him he should get involved in Edith E. Mackrille Elementary School’s PTA. Through his work in the PTA and coaching his daughter’s sports teams, Liscio began to get more involved in the community.
“With that, and coming to church here, you start to wonder what else you can do to help people,” said Liscio. “It evolved into the things we do now.”
Liscio said the creation of Westies Care was a result of starting a scholarship in the name of his son, Danny, who died at the age of 20. He said everything the group does is to give back.
“Everything we do is steeped in our Christian faith,” said Liscio. “The Bible tells you to do those things.”
In addition to the scholarship, the Liscios hosted a blood drive at the First Congregational Church, of which Phil and his family are members. He said another driving factor in the growth of Westies Care came when he was bringing food to the West Haven Emergency Action Taskforce.
“I was in total shock when I actually saw people I knew going there for help,” said Liscio. “This is when the economy was bottomed out – 2008 or 2009. Everybody was really struggling. I was struck by that. That people I know, who are good, hard working, taxpaying, income earning people, needed help.”
After talking to Rose Majestic, the Director of WHEAT, Liscio decided to have a food drive that summer because Majestic told him people are less likely to donate food at that time of year. They hosted a food drive called the Westies Care Food Fight: Red Sox vs. Yankees.
“We weighed the food, and that counted as points,” he said. “We raised more money, and brought in more food, in one weekend than Rose said she had ever seen in a summer food drive.”
Westies Care started with just Phil, Janet, their daughters and a number of volunteers. In order to start to grow, as well as raise money, Liscio said they need to become an official non-profit organization. He said his friends helped them with that.
“Colene and Peter MacDonald came to me and said they had a lawyer friend who may do it [help them apply for 501c3 status] pro bono,” said Liscio. “We got the paperwork together. They did all the work. We became a 501c3. We got an executive board and that core group still works together on everything.”
Liscio made a point to say that Westies Care does not do all their work alone. He said they work with other community partners such as their church, the Rotary Club and the Vertical Church.
“It’s not difficult,” he said. “You know what’s difficult? It’s not being able to help everybody who needs it.”
Westies Care has held a yearly banquet for the past decade where they honor members of the community and give out scholarships to students going on to higher education. He said last year they gave out $12,000 in scholarships.
The group has grown over time to hold many events including a Care and Share program at the Apple Festival and a Christmas dinner at the First Congregational Church. They also hold a dinner, with the help of other groups, at the church every Tuesday for those who need it.
“We [also] do a lot of small stuff,” said Liscio. “Every time we give a gift card or give a basket of food, we don’t document that stuff. That’s just the right Christian thing. We do that year-round.”
Liscio said he feels blessed when he, his family, and his friends can help others. He said if they were not giving back, they would not feel they were living up to what to what they are expected to be.

West Haven Green, 1920s
Katherine Held was born in 1915; today she is 104 years old, and still has a sharp and lucid memory. She has lived in the same house on Church Street for nearly her whole life, and this column would not be possible without the efforts of Katherine, as well as Steve Hildrich, present Historian of First Church, which this year is celebrating its 300th Birthday.
West Haven, Borough of Orange, became a town of its own right in 1921. The West Haven of Katherine Held’s childhood is remembered as a time when most people took the trolley or walked in order to get to work or to shop.
Indoor plumbing and telephone service were both fairly new, and gas lights were still in the process of being replaced by electric lights, both in homes and along the streets, and radio sets were just finding their way into many homes. And it was during the 1920s, that automobile would begin to change the culture and structure of America.
Katherine’s memories recall the homes and businesses which surround the Green, and those will be discussed here.
At the northeast corner of Savin Avenue and Main Street was the home of George Peck. That home would be razed in 1958 and in its place would be Williston apartments. Steve Hildrich saw the wrecking ball take it down; he lived on Center near Savin at that time. The stately house had worn paint outside, but beautiful woodwork inside. Even at 13, he was very sad to see it go. As a child, Katherine Held recalls many happy days spent playing with Attorney Peck’s children.
Two doors to the east was the home of Dr. Bevan; when young Katherine was out sick for more than three days, she would need a note from the doctor before returning to her classroom at Washington School. The next house belonged to well-known Savin Rock entrepreneur Frank Wilcox, who had opened his restaurant in 1900. Wilcox’s was built on pilings, and was famous up and down the coast for their shore dinners and its unsurpassed vistas of Long Island Sound.
Two doors further to the east was Seth Taylor Funeral home, named for its owner, who had founded it in 1917. Katherine Held spent many days at play with the Taylor’s daughter and recalls being told to be quiet especially during funerals. At the corner of Campbell Avenue and Main Street stood West Haven Town Hall, which had been built in 1893; it housed the police department, the fire department and the young town’s administrative offices. Every building on that block was beautiful—sadly, today every one of them is gone–or so changed as to be unrecognizable.
On the northeast corner of Campbell Avenue and Main Street stood Silver’s Drug Shop, run by its young new owner William Silver, who had purchased the business when he was twenty years old.
Thanks to Steve Hildrich for his help with this part of the story.
Dear Eleanore Turkington:
Back at the beginning of October I wrote that there are holes and crevices on Knox Street. Perhaps we are being forgotten because this is a dead end street. This complaint is specifically located at the entrance to 12 Knox St. Winter is coming and we hope that they can redo this street and fix the holes.
JE Knox Street Resident
I notified Councilwoman Robbin Watt Hamilton of the condition on Knox Street. It is now the end of November and GripeVine hasn’t heard from Councilwoman Hamilton. Hopefully she will respond to Gripe Vine with an update of this road’s condition. Meanwhile, drop me a note and let me know if any improvement has taken place.
Gripe Vine Readers:
I am very adamant when it comes to children’s safety and each time Gripe Vine receives emails and letters from readers alerting me to roads and intersections that post STOP SIGNS that are ignored, especially at streets where children travel or wait to board school buses, I really get highly annoyed. Thus, the reason for the letter that arrived on my desk back on Oct. 5 calling my attention to motorists disregarding STOP SIGNS at Hubbard and Benham Avenue.
I notified outgoing Councilwoman Louise Martone Oct. 5 of this hazardous area. To date I have not received a reply. I am hopeful that members of the police department read this column and make sincere efforts from the Traffic Department to pass some tickets to law-breaking motorist at this site. Meanwhile, I am hopeful Councilwoman Hamilton will follow up on this complaint and make some dedicated efforts to remedy this situation.
Dear Eleanore Turkington:
Someone has removed the STOP Sign at Seaview and Ocean Avenue. Can we have it replaced?
I am happy to say that following correspondence with State Representative Dorinda Borer, a reply arrived regarding this “missing” STOP SIGN. Here is what Rep. Borer had to say:
“I am sorry it took a few weeks since your article appeared in The Voice regarding the STOP SIGN at Seaview. In order to provide you and your readers to reach me, here is my contact information:
My official State Rep email is Dorinda. Borer@cga.ct.gov
My personal email is DorindaBorer@gmail.com
My cell number is 203-887-6359
Please feel free and pass it along to readers as I strive to be as responsive as possible.
With respect to the STOP SIGN at Seaview, I only remember a cross walk being there and don’t remember there being a stop sign there in the past, but I will inquire to DOT (Department of Transportation) as it certainty warrants one. I will bring Rep. Charlie Ferraro into the loop as this intersection is located within his district and we try to work with each other on these issues.”
Dear Eleanore Turkington:
As you may know, I will be the new councilman for the 10th District, effective Dec. 1. Should there be any pending concerns, questions or assistance pertaining to my district, please don’t hesitate to contact me now or moving forward.
Barry Lee Cohen
