James Kittler - In Memoriam


As many of you know, Jim Kittler who was a tutor, tutor advisor, and our Director of Student-Tutor Matching, passed away last June. Jim contributed so much time to his students, our tutors and to our organization as a whole. In many ways he was the face of Literacy Volunteers of the Tarrytowns – always at the library, board meetings and holiday parties. When the board decided that we needed to have the Tutoring Center painted, we asked Jim to get some estimates to do the job. He was so shocked by the amount others wanted to charge that did the job himself and only charged us for materials. We will miss him very much.


Alice Egan Brothers- In Memoriam

Our friend and colleague Alice Egan Brothers passed away October 17, 2008. Alice had been a member of Literacy Volunteers of the Tarrytowns for 32 years. She served as a tutor, treasurer and board member. Many in our organization met Alice when they attended our tutor training workshop — for many years she assisted with the workshop when the format of the training was to show filmstrips cued by recorded presentations. For the past 14 years, she was present at the first session to collect workshop fees and serve refreshments. Behind the scenes, Alice kept track of our income and expenses, made timely reimbursements and provided formal financial statements at each board meeting.

Alice was well known in our community through her work with many other volunteer organizations — Meals on Wheels, Friends of Warner Library, The Historical Society, Project Time Out (respite help) and the Burke Rehabilitation Hospital. Her keen mind, welcoming smile, pale blue eyes and helping hands will be cherished and missed by us all. -- By Mary Jane Driscoll
